Mt Toubkal Ascent Express Trek 2 Days 1 Nights
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 2 days
Challenge yourself to climb the highest peak in North Africa in 2 days. The tour starts and finishes in the vibrant city of Marrakech, and includes transport to and from Imlil. You will trek with a local English-speaking guide, a local cook, and mules to carry your luggage. This is a challenging walk rather than a climb, and anybody in good physical condition can reach the top. Make sure you bring your camera; the views from the summit are spectacular. Mount Toubkal 4167m is the highest peak in North Africa, and is a trekking peak involving no climbing but may involve walking in crampons or holding an ice axe for security (November to April). The itinerary has been designed for keen walkers, as the ascent is non-technical, but does involve some easy scrambling and snow slopes. After the first day spent trekking, you will stay at the refuge where you will spend the night, and enjoy Berb...
It was a special experience. However the meals provided during the activity was poor

From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the Toukbal Refuge for your stop for the night. On day 3, after an early breakfast, climb to the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the high...
Travel from Marrakech to Toubkal Massif on a full-day trip into the Atlas Mountains. Visit a national park that’s characterized by craggy mountain peaks and deep valleys. You’ll take in spectacular views of the highest summits in the Atlas mountain chain here as you make your way through the park. At the small village of Imlil you’ll leave the highway and arrive at the starting point for exploring the Toubkal area. Enjoy a hike of around 20 minutes in this stunning natural environment, stopping for lunch at a restaurant that faces Mount Toubkal. The massif, standing an impressive 13,700 feet, is the highest mountain in the Atlas Mountain rangem and one of the highest peaks in Africa.
On the first day, ride to Imlil from Marrakesh and begin your trek. You'll head along the Ait Mizane Valley, pass through the village of Aremd and onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. You’ll follow mule tracks into the high rocky cliffs, climbing steadily above the snow line until you reach the Toukbal Refuge. Rest here for the night. On the second day, you’ll follow the southern circle route. The climb itself is not highly strenuous, but scree and altitude changes may make it difficult in parts. Don't worry - there are plenty of views to distract you along the way. When you reach the summit, soak in the 360-degree-view. You'll see the Marrakech Plain and the High Atlas Mountains to the north, all the way to the Anti-Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert in the south. From the peak, you’ll head back down the mountain and return to Marrakesh via Imill.
It would be great to have a packing list beforehand. The guide were great though!

On the first day, you will depart from Marrakesh around 9:00 AM in private transport. The journey takes about 1 and a half hours and passes south through the Moulay Brahim Gorges to Imlil.

Great tour! Our Guide really took good care of us and we had a beautiful sunrise at Toubkal! Thanks for that!
On the first day, you will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakesh and transferred to the starting point. You will begin the ascent, passing the village of Aremd and the Sidi Chamarouch shrine before crossing floodplains and heading to the rocky cliffs above the valley. You will have a chance to marvel at the stunning views before stopping for the night in a refuge. On the second day, perhaps the most exciting day of the trip, you will climb to the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. This can be a challenging walk with some scree and high altitudes. However, the breathtaking views will make everything worthwhile. You can see from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas Mountains in the North and the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara Desert in the South. You will retrace your steps to return back down the mountain and spend the rest for the night at the refuge. On the final...

Experience that will surely remain in the heart. Picked up at the meeting point because the Riad was inaccessible with the car, the driver was very helpful and kind. Immediately the camel ride, nice, continuing the tour we went to the argan cooperative, which I would cut it off from the day, since it was quick and too touristy. Their only thought was to grab sales. Once we arrived in Imil, a very special day began. The wonderful, kind and extremely humble MOHAMED guide. After the falls and a walk through the Berber villages he took us to lunch at his house, together with his family and his two splendid children. They are a very humble family, but full of dignity. They had little to offer materially but humanly we returned with a wealth of warmth and values. Bravo Mohamed! We love you
Simo brought us closer to the country. We hiked 10km with him (not too bad, 350 meters in altitude and not steep). The area is touristy but (at the beginning of February) not full. The food was good and the waiting time was interesting because we could listen to the village. Well suited for people who want to explore the country individually.
It was wonderful, I was lucky to have a spectacular guide, Sahid, he helped me with everything I needed, I learned a lot from the Toubkal mountain and the Berber culture.
We had a very nice, competent local guide who responded to our requests! He planned everything very well and it was all very personal!
Fantastic experience, very professional guide(Mohamed +212 666-982490) recommend it to everyone, who wants to summit Mt. Toubkal.
