Trek Mount Toubkal in Winter

Rated 4.75 out of 5 based on 4 customer ratings
(4 customer reviews)

Altitude 4167m, Grade 1A

The Atlas Mountains from December to April provide a great opportunity to put your winter walking skills to the test whilst climbing two magnificent snow covered Moroccan peaks in a unique environment.

Description

Mount Toubkal, known locally as Jebel Toubkal stands at 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. Our approach trek passes through remote villages that offer an insight into the life of the Berbers, a culture that has hardly changed for centuries.

Mount Toubkal in Winter

Our Mount Toubkal in Winter Trek follows a programme of acclimatisation we aim to make an ascent of Ouankerim (4088m), Morocco’s third highest summit and Toubkal (4167m), the highest mountain in North Africa. The views across the Jebel Siroua and towards the Sahara are well worth the effort. Reports say “What a great trip! You get the full hit of everything in Morocco; hustlers, markets, wacky spices, beautiful mountains, great food and really friendly people make it a trip to be remembered for a long time”.

As the initial slope on the ascent of Toubkal is fairly steep and in icy condition a fall could have serious consequences, we do insist that participants have previous experience of walking with crampons and know how to do an ice axe arrest. 

This trip will operate with a minimum of 2 participants using a local leader and a UK leader will accompany groups of 6 or more.

    I liked your brochure with a good write-up of lodgings included meals. It would be helpful to include samples of specific examples of gear aligned to items as some of them don’t translate to the same items in the United States (example, warm pants).

    It was a great trip, I highly recommend it to others and your agent was very good. The food at the hotel and during the trip were also very good. It was very well organised very good vehicles and logistics overall a very good and well executed expedition in an exotic location. I had to recommend a trip for both the climbing and culture.

    As an existing client, I trust adventure peaks to get it right. All staff are great to deal with and the website is clear and easy to use. Prices are very competitive without compromising on service.

    The only possible negative is that, due to the huge range of expeditions to choose from, it is not always guaranteed that the triple go ahead. Because of minimum client requirements. However, I couldn’t mark adventure peaks down on this because it helped broaden my horizons and realise the huge variety of opportunities to travel to amazing places that I hadn’t previously thought of.

    Trip was better than i expected, had a fantastic team and it was a lot of fun. Food was amazing, will definitely be back to the Atlas Mountains.

    Would highly recommend especially as a tester before committing to say Mont Blanc, good practice for someone new to crampons and using ice axe.

    Mohamed is engaging, knowledgeable and very professional. He was with us in 2015 and great to see him again.

    The group on this trip were tremendous fun to be with and with Mohamed’s firm organisation everything went like clockwork.
