This challenge offers a tough, yet incredibly rewarding trek combining unforgettable mountain scenery with the splendour and colour of Morocco and its traditional people, the Berbers.

Morocco is a country full of mysticism and mythology, a diverse and spectacular land. In the midst of it all lies the High Atlas mountain range, home to Jebel Toubkal; at 4,167m high one of the tallest peaks in North Africa.

Reaching the summit of this awesome mountain signifies the peak of your long weekend trek. You will navigate your way, climbing and scrambling over huge, obstructive boulders and loose rock of Jebel Toubkal.

Trekking will be for 5 to 8 hours each day and will be strenuous yet incredibly rewarding as you trek through peaks scattered with remote Berber villages.

A good degree of fitness will be required for this trip, although there is no technical climbing involved. The weather is unpredictable and can make the going very difficult.

The challenge ends in the vibrant city of Marrakech, where the southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring their goods to the souks.
