Trekking Toubkal: Northern Africa's highest peak
Located in the Western High Atlas Mountains, the Toubkal Massif encompasses four of Morocco's four thousand plus meter peaks, including North Africa's highest peak, Jbel Toubkal at 4167m/13670ft. With itineraries ranging from 3 days to 2 weeks, we can customize the perfect Toubkal Mountain trek for you. The summit of Mount Toubkal offers 360 degree views of the Western High Atlas Mountains. Your itinerary can also include trekking and camping at the remote Lake Ifni. Berber communities thrive in these mountains, and village exploration allows for deeper understanding of the customs and traditions of the Berber mountain dwelling tribes.
If you are short on time but want a challenging high elevation trek, come join us for a fast paced journey to the summit of Jbel Toubkal over a weekend or addition to a longer itinerary. Acclimatization days in Imlil can be added for travelers not accustomed to high elevation trekking.
Twin Peaks combines the highest peaks of the Western and Central Atlas Mountains, Toubkal and M'Goun, on an extremely challenging trekking itinerary. Explore two very different landscapes in one epic trekking expedition.
