 4 Incredible Days Trekking in Morocco

Do you want to climb North Africa’s highest mountain? Well, now is your chance! Our wondrous 4-day experience takes you to the summit of Toubkal, Morocco. 

Located in the High Atlas Mountains, Mt. Toubkal, known locally as Jebel Toubkal, stands at a height of 4,167m/ 13,671ft. Morocco hiking trips don’t get any better than this!

Our expert team has crafted a complete journey. Starting in the vibrant Red City of Marrakech, we head to the remote foothills of Imlil, through small mountainous villages, and then climb to the summit of Toubkal. 

This mountainous region close to Marrakech is one of the most beautiful and magical areas of Morocco.

Of course, this tour allows you to experience the superb hiking terrain here. But you can also delve into the unique local Berber culture and traditions that have remained untouched for centuries along steep valley sides. 

On this walking holiday in Morocco, we take you off the beaten track to discover one of this incredible country’s hidden gems.

If you have more time to play with, check out our 14-day Guided Tours of Morocco, covering  Toubkal, the Sahara Desert, and the country’s wild Atlantic coast.

Morocco Hiking Tour Itinerary

Day 1:Marrakech to Imlil

After a beautiful Moroccan breakfast, you’ll meet your guide who will brief you on your itinerary, predicted weather conditions for the hike, and an equipment check. 

Then our adventure begins with a pick-up from your accommodation and a beautiful scenic drive towards the Ait Mizane Valley of the High Atlas Mountains, where we will have lunch in the quaint village of Imlil.

Afterward, we will take an afternoon stroll up to the traditional Berber village of Armed which is situated at the edge of Toubkal National Park and where we will stay overnight.

Take the opportunity to relax or explore this quaint valley and rest well that night as the next day is when the hard work starts. 

Day 2:Armed (1,900m) to Refuge Mouflon (3,207m)

That morning after breakfast we begin our venture from the village of Armed and make our way along the Mizane Valley and enter into Toubkal National Park towards the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. 

The village of Armed is built on a moraine spur overlooking the valley floor and is the largest village in the valley and provides an exciting mix of traditional terraced farming and streets that seem to be permanently gridlocked by goats and cattle. 

As we continue east and crossing the floodplain our route takes us along mule tracks and up steep terrain into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims alike (although only Muslims are allowed to cross the stone bridge to visit the shrine itself). 

We will have a tea/coffee stop here overlooking spectacular views over the Atlas Mountain Range before continuing our steady ascent to Refuge Mouflon where lunch awaits and an afternoon of fun training. 

Day 3:Summit Mount Toubkal

Rise and shine as we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. 

With our crampons and ice axes ready, we begin our ascent by crossing the stream above the refuge and slowly zigzagging our way up through valley before arriving at a plateau beneath the ridgeline. We take a welcomed break and get ready for a short walk to the summit where laying before you are quite breathtaking views in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara.

Afterwards, we make a steady descent from the summit of Toubkal to our refuge where a hearty meal awaits you and the chance to reminisce over your summit to the top of Northern Africa. 

Day 4:Hike to Armed and transfer to Marrakech

We start our day with a good breakfast and a stretch of the legs before commencing our descent down through Toubkal’s magnificent steep valleys and arriving in the village of Imlil where we will have a celebratory lunch for you. 

After lunch, we depart for the fascinating city of Marrakech which is home to numerous mosques, palaces, gardens, and of course the vibrant Medina. Take the opportunity to explore this walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with wondrous maze-like alleyways that are home to thriving souks (marketplaces) selling traditional textiles, pottery, and jewellery. 

That evening, we will have our final dinner together at our accommodation venue where we will bid a fond farewell and we really hope you have had an amazing time exploring some of Morocco’s most unique destinations.

* If you require an airport transfers or an extra night of accommodation pre or post tour please request at the time of booking as we are more than happy to accommodate you.
