Challenge details

This challenge offers a difficult but hugely rewarding trek, combining breathtaking mountain scenery with the colour and splendour of Morocco.

Morocco is a land steeped in mythology and mysticism, a spectacular and diverse land. In the heart of it lies the magnificent High Atlas mountain range, the home of Jebel Toubkal; one North Africa's tallest peaks at a towering 4,167m high.

Trekking for 5 to 8 hours per day will be tough but incredibly rewarding as you walk across peaks scattered with isolated, picturesque Berber villages. Reaching the top of this majestic mountain signifies the peak of your challenge. You will scramble and climb over the loose rock and massive, obstructive boulders of Jebel Toubkal. The challenge finishes in the fascinating and atmospheric city of Marrakech, where the Berber villagers and southern tribesmen bring their wares to the souks.

The following items are included in the cost of the challenge:
  • International flights to/from Morocco
  • All meals and drinking water for the trek
  • All transfers in Morocco
  • All accommodation (refuge or hotel)
  • English speaking challenge leader and full local support team
  • A Charity Challenge T-Shirt
  • A discount from Nomad Travellers Stores for personal equipment.
