WHAT'S THIS TREK ALL ABOUT THEN ?
The high atlas mountains in North Africa are to simply put it .... STUNNING, A long mountain range that separates the Atlantic Coast with the Sahara desert. There are a number of 4000 meter peaks , the Highest being Jebel Toubkal at 4067 meters the whole area has a real alpine feel to it . The High Atlas mountains are very accessible from the UK, Indeed I can arrive at the base of some of them quicker than I can get to some part of Scotland . The whole aim of the week is to ascend Mont Toubkal, immerse ourselves in the traditional Berber and Moroccan culture and most importantly have an amazing experience.
Frequently asked questions
Do I need any previous experience?
Ideally your'll have walked in the Uk or over seas before but no prior experience is required. We will be effected by the altitude but we will discuss how to manage that prior trek. Walking in the mountains can be very physically demanding so all we ask is that you have good level fitness.
What equipment do I need ?
This is a summer walking trip so there is not need for crampons or Ice axes ! We will send you a detailed packing list once your place is confirmed .
Where do we meet ?
Please do not book your flights until your place has been confirmed, We will send you details of the flights that we are on and hopefully you can book around that, Ideally we will all meet at a central airport travel together. However if you decide to choose a different airport we ask that you try arrive around the same time .
