Explore the rocky gorges & high-altitude villages that have populated the Atlas Mountains for centuries on this exclusive charity trek.
Morocco lies in the far north-west corner of Africa between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sahara desert. The smell of incense, narrow labyrinths of ancient souks and rolling golden dunes characterise the area - a world apart from the UK yet only a few hours away.
The journey to the High Atlas Mountains reveals a way of life virtually unchanged for centuries. Reaching the peak of Mount Toubkal at 4,167m above sea level is a real highlight and makes this trek a mental and physical challenge.
The majority of people will sign up by themselves and meet people on the challenge - so don't worry if you're on your own. You'll be trekking for several hours a day for six days so you'll need to be physically fit. There'll be extremes of hot and cold, a variety of terrain plus shared accommodation including tents and bunkhouses.
This could be your challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.
