After landing, you’ll be met by the Alexander Adventures team and we will head 1.5 hours south to the picturesque Imlil village – the gateway to Mount Toubkal, at 1,740 metres. After checking in to a local family run guesthouse and you will get to know your fellow team mates and explore the local area including a short Trek to the Imlil Waterfalls. In the evening over a welcome dinner your guide will go through a full trek briefing and catering will be provided by a traditional Berber cook.

After a delicious Moroccan breakfast, your team will load up all equipment and food supplies ready for the trek of Mount Toubkal. After leaving Imlil we will be heading to the Mizane valley – our route will take us past walnut and cherry orchards, following sun-dappled mule trails that snake through the rugged terrain. We will stop for lunch at the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch (2350m), nestled beside a cascading waterfall a hearty freshly made meal will be served. We’ll then continue our ascent deeper in to the Atlas mountain range and go up to 3,207 metres to our mountain refuge – a base camp set between craggy peaks. Here we’ll be feasting on a home-cooked dinner and also practicing our winter climbing skills on a snowy slope near to camp, preparing for going to the summit of Mount Toubkal tomorrow!

We’ll be up at dawn for a seven-hour trek – today we are going to the top of the highest peak in North Africa. The summit climb involves trekking across steep snow and ice fields and we’ll need to take it steady to manage the rising altitude. After four hours, we’ll cross a ridge-line crest to a wide plateau; the fabled roof of North Africa, looming majestically at 4,167 metres. Look west to glimpse the Atlantic coast beyond the peaks of Nfiss valley. To the east lies the shimmering plains of the Sahara, while the extinct volcano Siroua lingers to the south. After soaking in these amazing views and taking some summit photos we will toast to our feat with a light lunch before starting the walk back down the mountain. Arriving back at the mountain refuge in the early evening it will be time to relax with a celebration dinner and a well-deserved rest.

Following a satisfying breakfast, we embark on our descent from the mountain refuge, navigating the Valley’s trails on cutting-edge mountain bikes. We’ll weave through the landscape, passing snow-capped mountains and experiencing some of the county’s premier single-track mountain biking. Our dedicated support team will await us along the route, offering a midday reprieve with lunch and refreshing cold drinks. Finally, we’ll reach the charming village of Imlil, where you can unwind with a cold beer after a thrilling mountain biking adventure from the foothills of North Africa’s highest mountain.

After a leisurely breakfast, embark on a serene mountain biking ride through picturesque Berber villages. You can opt for e-bikes for added ease. Traverse scenic trails, savor local cuisine, and descend from a high pass with the breathtaking panorama of the entire Imlil Valley. It’s a surreal conclusion to your mountain adventure. Following lunch, a brief drive brings you back to Marrakech, where you’ll explore the vibrant city and immerse yourself in the bustling Djemaa el Fna market, featuring food stalls, vivid spice displays, diverse clothing and trinket shops, along with lively musicians, snake charmers, and acrobats. As evening sets in, dine

After a traditional breakfast we will heading back to the airport to catch our flight back to the UK.

Morocco has a wide range of biodiversity. It is part of the Mediterranean basin, an area with exceptional concentrations of endemic species undergoing rapid rates of habitat loss and is therefore considered to be a hotspot for conservation priority. Birds are notably variant. The birds of Morocco include a total of 454 species, five of which have been introduced by humans, and 156 are rarely ever seen.

Marrakesh is the 4th largest city in Morocco and comprises an old fortified city packed with vendors and their stalls. This medina quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today it is one of the busiest cities in Africa and serves as a major economic centre and tourist destination.

Tourism is strongly advocated by the reigning Moroccan monarch, Mohammed VI. Despite the economic recession, real estate and hotel development in Marrakesh have grown dramatically in the 21st century. Marrakesh is particularly popular with the French, and numerous French celebrities own property in the city. Marrakesh has the largest traditional market (souk) in Morocco, with some 18 souks selling wares ranging from traditional Berber carpets to modern consumer electronics. Crafts employ a significant percentage of the population, who primarily sell their products to tourists.

Although much of the High Atlas consists of sedimentary rocks, the Toubkal massif is an area of volcanic rocks that have weathered into alpine crests, cut by deep, narrow valleys.
