Tour description

Climbing a mountain in the summertime is tough. Climbing one in the winter? That’s for adventurers only. While the climb up Mount Toubkal is the undisputed centrepiece of this week-long escapade in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, it’s not the only once-in-a-lifetime encounter you’ll have. Beginning in captivating Marrakech, you’ll trek deep into the hills (no prior experience required – promise!), happening upon snowbound Berber communities and' along the way, enjoy some of the most majestic mountainscapes you’ll ever see along the way. Prepare to return home a completely different person than when you left.
