"Discover the beauty of Morocco"

Toubkal Valleys and Summit

This trip is a great opportunity to trek in the High Atlas, have spectacular views, meet local Berber people and experience the vibrant atmosphere of Marrakech…

Trekking in Toubkal area is definitely one of the best ways to explore Morocco.


This trip is one of the most beautiful treks in Toubkal massif where friendly and welcoming Berber natives live a simple daily life. During our trip we will climb Toubkal summit and be amazed of the varied colours of the scenery. We can admire spectacular views of luxuriant valleys with terraced fields and learn about the specialty flora and fauna of the area.

We will also have the chance to experience Berber village life, mix with local people and dance and drum with them.

The trip ends in Marrakech, where we will have opportunity to visit the most famous places of the ‘Red city’: get lost in the labyrinthine narrow streets or souks and enjoy the atmosphere of the most famous Moroccan square, the Djemaa el-Fna.
