The challenge

  • Unforgettable mountain scenery and spectacular views
  • Tackle daunting peaks dotted with Berber villages
  • Summit Jebel Toubkal, Morocco's highest mountain
  • Push yourself mentally and physically at high altitude
  • Get lost in the colourful souks of mystical Marrakech

This tough but incredibly rewarding challenge combines the unforgettable scenery of the High Atlas Mountains with the splendour and colour of Marrakech. Our challenge sees us climbing and scrambling over the huge boulders and rocks of northern Africa’s tallest peak – Jebel Toubkal, standing at a whopping 4,167m! Although not technically climbing, the weather and terrain make this challenge extremely tough and a good level of fitness is essential. We finish in the vibrant city of Marrakech, where the southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring their goods to the souks.

The trek is being supported by Ocorian (formerly Bedell Trust), an independent, award-winning provider of outsourced administration, fiduciary and accounting services to the corporate, funds, private client and real estate sectors. Managing director Shane Hollywood says: ‘Ocorian is very proud to be supporting the Autism Jersey trek in 2017. Whilst advancements in diagnosis and management continue to develop, autism remains a complex condition. The team undertaking the trek across the High Atlas Mountains will certainly face a number of challenges but we have every faith that they will be successful and raise important money for this worthwhile cause.'

Shane Hollywood, Managing Director - Ocorian

One of the most challenging yet enjoyable experiences of my life. The weather tried its best to put us down but we battled through it as a team and despite being unable to reach the summit, we all felt like we had achieved something! Our leader and guides were better than I could have ever imagined and made the experience what it was, along with my fellow colleagues who were also on the trek.

If you were to do one thing to challenge yourself and make a difference - do this one. Go in with an open mind. It opens up your mind and heart to the most amazing experiences while physically challenging you and you get a chance to support a charity of your choice.

There is nothing more inspiring than the view from the high Atlas Mountains it can make you believe if you can do this you can do anything.
