Day 1, Tue 13 Nov 2018

International departure from London. Leave Marrakech and climb to Aremd (1,950m)

Meet the rest of the team and a Charity Challenge representative at the airport for the long-awaited departure to Marrakech. Upon arrival, the group will be met by a local guide and transferred through the valley of Ait Mizane to the hamlet of Imlil. Trekking begins straight away with a short walk uphill to Aremd on the foothills of Toubkal. Overnight here in a village house.

Day 2, Wed 14 Nov 2018

Aremd to Toubkal Refuge, 3,200m (approximately 5-6 hours)

After breakfast we set off along the Ait Mizane valley. It’s a gradual climb to the Shrine of Sidi Chamharouch.  Soon, the first high peaks emerge in the distance. Once we hit the snow, the group will be shown how to use crampons and ice axes for the onward trek to a glacial valley where we spend three nights at a refuge. Overnight at mountain refuge.

Day 3, Thu 15 Nov 2018

Toubkal Refuge to Ouanoukrim, 4089m (approximately 8 hours)

This morning, weather depending, we set off to summit Ouanoukrim (4,089m). The trek starts from the Assif n Isseguane valley to the pass of Tizi Ouagane, then follows the ridge to Ras Ouanoukrim (4,070m) on to Timezguida (4,089m). On this more technical climb, with your heart pumping, you scramble to the top where you take in the awe-inspiring sight of all you’ve achieved before heading back down to the refuge.

Day 4, Fri 16 Nov 2018

Toubkal Refuge to Mount Toubkal, 4,165m (approximately 7 hours)

Yesterday’s hike was just a taster – now you’re ready for Toubkal! Leaving the refuge behind, the climb sets off on a steep slope before entering a glacial valley to the pass of Tizi’n’Toubkal. The route continues along the ridge to the summit with great views overlooking both the southern Atlas mountain range and the Marrakech plain to the north. Overnight at the refuge for the last time.

Day 5, Sat 17 Nov 2018

Toubkal Refuge to Imlil and Marrakech (approximately 4.5 hours)

After an invigorating and fascinating trip you leave the refuge for the last time and walk back to Imlil, for the transfer back to Marrakech. There will be free time to relax or explore the souks, before a celebratory dinner in a traditional Moroccan restaurant and overnight at a local hotel.

Important information

The itinerary is there as a guide and may change due to unusual weather patterns, wildlife movements, the strength of the group, and other unpredictable factors. We will do our very best to keep to the set itinerary; however we cannot be held responsible for any last minute changes that may occur. In all such circumstances, your expedition leader will have the final say.

Should you suffer from vertigo, it is worth considering that on most mountain treks there will be occasional exposure to sheer drops. You should, therefore, discuss the particular itinerary of your choice with a member of our team.
