Itinerary

Begin your Moroccan adventure as soon as you land at Casablanca airport, from where you’ll be transferred to the vibrant city of Marrakech. Settle into your hotel and then enjoy an evening exploring the historic medina and dining in a traditional restaurant in the old city, offering a perfect introduction to Moroccan culture.
After breakfast, journey from Marrakech to Imlil, the starting point of your trek. From Imlil, ascend through the beautiful Imlil Valley to the Azzadene Valley, crossing Tizi N’Mzik at 2,450m and passing the Ighouliden waterfalls. Your day ends at the Azib n Tamsoult refuge, where you will spend the night at 2400 meters, surrounded by the tranquility of the high Atlas Mountains.
Today, challenge yourself with a stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley to the Toubkal Refuge over the Aguelzim Mountain pass at 3,660m. Enjoy lunch against a backdrop of the sprawling Atlas Mountain Range before settling into the Toubkal Refuge for the night, sharing space with fellow trekkers preparing for the early morning summit.
Rise early to begin your ascent to Jebel Toubkal’s summit, the highest peak in Northern Africa at 4,167 meters. The trek will be demanding but rewarding, offering stunning views across the Marrakesh Plain and deep into the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas ranges. Celebrate your achievement at the summit before descending back to the refuge for another overnight stay.
Continue your adventure with a morning hike to the summit of Ouankrim (4,080m), another impressive peak of the Atlas Mountains. After enjoying the panoramic views and challenging trek, descend back to Imlil for a well-earned rest and a night in a comfortable hotel.
Return to Marrakech and take a guided tour of its famous landmarks including the Bahia Palace, Majorelle Garden, vibrant souks, and the bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa square. This cultural tour offers insight into the rich history and modern-day vibrancy of Marrakech.
Your Moroccan high-altitude adventure concludes today. After breakfast, depending on your flight schedule, you may have some free time before being transferred to the airport for your departure, filled with memories of the majestic mountains and rich cultural experiences.
