If you’ve been dreaming of climbing mountains, traversing rural villages and discovering a new sense of adventure – take a long weekend trip to Morocco’s Mount Toubkal. This 5-day trekking trip takes you from colourful Marrakech’s Djemaa el-Fna Square and winding medinas to the High Atlas Mountains, where you can put your hiking boots to good use. Walk through rural Amazigh villages and breathtaking scenery to Toubkal base camp – where you’ll spend the night in a mountain refuge and wake before dawn to summit North Africa’s highest peak. Ascend Mount Toubkal with your group, pack mules and a safety crew and drink in the incredible views that reward your success. Celebrate this feat in an Aroumd mountain home (gite), where you’ll get to rub shoulders with the locals who provide some much-needed hospitality in the form of delicious homecooked food.
