Whether you’re a newbie trekker or a well-travelled walker, this hiking trip in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains is sure to lure you in. From colourful Marrakech, this 7-day trip will see you staying in mountain gites and hiking huts, trekking through spectacular mountain scenery and reaching the ‘roof of North Africa’ with an expert crew and some trusty pack mules. Climb to the summit of Jebel Toubkal, or Mount Toubkal, from base camp and discover a renewed love for mountainous landscapes and the adventure of being thousands of metres above sea level. As this trip gives you a day to acclimatise to the altitude and traverse the villages at your own pace, it’s perfect for trekkers of any level.

Very much enjoyed this trip with a great group, and a great guide Omar. The hiking definitely requires a decent level of fitness, especially when descending on scree, so good to be aware of that in advance. The gite in Aroumd is vey peaceful, and the views of the night sky in the mountains are incredible! Note that travelling in August, Marrakech is very hot, so this part of the trip was a little less comfortable, but the temperatures in the mountains were lovely. Would definitely recommend this trip for anyone outdoorsy who wants to see the more peaceful side of Morocco!

This trek was amazing and so well organized. Omar was kind and very approachable. He made sure that every single one of us made it to the summit and back down safely.

The trip has really changed my perception of Morrocco. I thought of the country to be like what is seen in the films with the souks. However, to stand at the top in the majesty of the Atlas as the sun rose was a perfect honeymoon experience. One I will cherish forever - Thank you Intrepid. Our guide Omar Ait Ahmad was the catalyst that made the trip exceptional, it was his enthusiasm and professionalism that made this trip 5 stars for me.
