Discover the stunning Atlas Mountains in winter and trek to ‘the roof of North Africa’, Mount Toubkal. This adventure-filled trip will take you from the bustling cityscape of Marrakech, transport you into the out-of-this-world mountain regions and give you a taste of Berber culture. Experience the magic of this region in winter; expect snow-capped peaks, crunchy ice beneath your boots and the freshest mountain air to fill your lungs. With a trusty pack of mules and expert crew, you’ll hike through the rugged mountains with spectacular scenery at every turn. Stay in mountain gites and refuge and enjoy traditional home-made meals to fuel your adventures.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Experience the High Atlas Mountains with a wintery twist – expect snow-capped peaks, icy groundcover, refreshing mountain air and clear skies that lead all the way to the ocean.
  • Summit the highest peak in North Africa, the majestic Mount Toubkal, with an experienced local guide to lead the way.
  • Hike through the rugged mountains with spectacular scenery at every turn and a trusty pack of mules heading up your crew.
  • Enjoy traditional Moroccan cuisine, freshly cooked each day, to fuel you for your epic mountain adventures.
  • Embrace the vibrant souks, sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech on a guided walking tour of the Medina.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Education for All. Donations help them support girls in the High Atlas Mountains through secondary school, bringing a generation of women out of the cycle of illiteracy, poverty and early marriage.

Is this trip right for you?
  • High Atlas Mountains can be very cold in the winter, with feel-like temperature reaching -20⁰C (or more on extreme days!), so you must have the appropriate footwear and clothing. To be fully prepared, please follow the recommended clothing list closely. As your luggage will be carried up the mountain by mules, we ask that you have no more than 1 bag (duffle bag or rucksack) weighing no more than 16 kgs and a small rucksack for trekking essentials.
  • Winter weather can be unpredictable in high mountains so we may need to make itinerary changes to keep the group safe and well at all times. If this occurs, we will do our best to find comparable activities and experiences

Winter Toubkal was an awesome trip, I would absolutely recommend it. Physically demanding which was exactly what I was looking for, but so peaceful up in the mountains. Omar our tour leader was outstanding and really enhanced my enjoyment of the trip.

The Mount Toubkal Winter Trek was an incredible adventure! Our guide Lahcen was fantastic. He knew every detail of the mountains and shared with us the rich culture and tradition of the area. It was both a mental and physical push at these altitudes, but for stunning scenery, vast landscapes and interesting people - this trip ticks all the boxes.
