Mount Toubkal Challenge

14-19 September 2020 

Mount Toubkal in Morocco is the highest mountain in North Africa. We're looking for individuals to form our group of Longfield supporters who are up for an exciting challenge.

This exciting opportunity is a six-day Mount Toubkal Challenge trip to Morocco beginning in vibrant Marrakech.

Day 1 - Marrakech

On arrival, the team will be met by our guide at the airport and be transferred to your Riad in Marrakech near the main square. In the afternoon you can enjoy a tour of the city and its famous Souks.

Overnight in a Riad in Marrakech (Riad Africa or similar) in twin share rooms, lunch and dinner.

 Day 2 - High Atlas Mountains

After breakfast, the team transfers to the mountains to start this exciting adventure in the Berber homelands. You will have lunch surrounded by the stunning Atlas Mountains before heading off on your acclimatisation trek, approximately 5 hours, heading to Tizi n' Tamatert, a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2358m. You will pass through the mountain villages and meet the local Berber communities. Berber history dates back to prehistoric times, and their way of life still remains blissfully simple, it is like stepping back in time when you visit this area.

Full board and overnight in Gite Dar Imlil or similar in twin share rooms.

Day 3 - Base Camp

The trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal will be tough and challenging and the terrain can be demanding. After an early start it is time to start to ascent route to Base Camp which will be between 6 - 7 hours of trekking, we will have lunch en route. We will arrive at our campsite where we can rest before the summit day. You will have exceptional support throughout the trek with the help of expert mountain guides and a full support crew.

It will be an early start for Summit day and the trek to reach the summit and return to Base Camp will be between 7 - 8 hours of trekking. It will be a steady, non-technical trek with plenty of stops. Tonight, we will camp with full board supported by our trek crew.
