Mount Toubkal treks & tours

North Africa's highest peak calls to be climbed

Jebel Toubkal stands 4167m above the mighty Atlas Ranges of Morocco. It’s a mountain that has captivated adventurers for centuries – a stark ascent through lowland floodplains, charming Amazigh villages and rocky gorges strewn with snow. The climb is not for the faint of heart, but the sweeping views from the peak, across the jagged line of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara beyond, must be seen to be believed.

This was my first trip with Intrepid and I’ll definitely be doing another. The trip was well organised with just the right level of challenge. Our guide was excellent, looking after the needs of the whole group, as well as being friendly and informative.

Go with Mohamed Id Blaid! Kudos to him for managing a group of 9 individuals ranging from 18 years old to 68 years old. Bravo. Incredible experience. I felt so well, the trek was such an amazing experience.

This is a remote strenuous trip up steep, boulder-covered slopes. You need to be 100% fit and healthy plus have checked all your equipment before going. Poles are a must even for younger treckers to be safe (I never use walking poles normally but needed them on the final day climb). The guides are excellent, strong and capable of dealing with people struggling which is a great plus that made me feel much safer. Several people either: - Did not make it to the top due to strength/altitude sickness and were escorted down; or - Struggled to come down and were helped down safely by the guides. The mountain refuge was much better than I expected with hot water, mini shop, clean toilets and good food. The guides also ensured the pace was kept very gentle and kept the group together so anyone reasonably fit could get to the top. I would certainly recommend having an extra few days in Marakesh in addition to this holiday. I am a very fit 64-year-old and made it to the top easily but my boots were not big enough making the return painful and two back toes to prove it. Overall, if you like strenuous hiking routes, this would be an excellent holiday to choose.

Starting our ascent of Toubkal just before dawn to reach the summit about four hours later was a lifetime experience. Our group was led superbly by Mohammed and Ibrahim, who throughout our trip looked after us as friends and ensured not only our safety but our enjoyment at all times.

This trip was excellent! Our guide Mohamed was great—really knowledgeable, friendly and we all felt very safe in the mountains. The food was amazing and the week spent in the mountains was so much fun. Would definitely recommend!
