Besides day hikes in and around the gorge, Todra's vertical rock faces offer sublime rock-climbing routes (French grade 5 to 8), some of them bolted. Many of the routes are over 25m long, although there is some spectacular multipitch climbing where routes run over 300m. Pillar du Couchant, near the entrance to the gorge, offers classic long climbs, while the Petite Gorge is better for novice climbers, with good short routes. Few of the routes are mapped, although many hotels keep logbooks detailing current information on local routes. Otherwise, internationally certified guides and reliable equipment can be hired from Aventures Verticales.

From the centre of the gorge, you can walk back to Tinerhir through palmeraies in three or four hours. With a 4WD or a couple of days walking, you can cover the rough piste west of Todra to Dadès Gorge. There are no banks in the gorge and limited connectivity and phone coverage, so carry enough cash.


Most accommodation is within 20km of Tinerhir. You'll find a varied range of offerings: simple campsites, budget-friendly guesthouses and colourful boutique lodges.


Most visitors take their meals at their guesthouses. If you're not packing a picnic, the best lunch spots are at Camping le Soleil and the restaurants in the small village of Aït Baha Tizgui.
