Situated on the northernmost tip of Africa, yet only 14 km from Europe.

A place that will both intrigue and inspire the visitor. It is renowned for its warm welcome, sun drenched landscapes and enduring mystery.

Contrasts abound in Morocco

Its long western coast is washed by the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, while to the North the warm waters of the Mediterranean caress its shores. From mountain ranges to deep gorges, carved out by rivers over thousands of years, big cities to small villages where people are still living as they have always done.

Jebel Toubkal  & the Atlas Mountains

The highest and most extensive range in North Africa.

For the walker they offer an incredible variety of scenery, climate and terrain. In the valleys you can see a way of life that has remained largely unchanged for thousands of years.

The native inhabitants of this region, the Berbers, possess a distinctive culture. Their villages of Kasbahs, with steep terraces leave a lasting impression on the visitor.

Exploration of these mountains began in earnest with the arrival of French colonists. The area around Jebel Toubkal has established itself as a popular destination for walkers from all over the world.

Jebel Toubkal itself stands at an impressive height of 4167m, and the main ingredient needed to climb to its summit is a strong determination to trek across mountain passes and a will to reach the summit.

Expeditions can take place most of the year, Weather and team fitness permitting we hope to climb to the highest peak in North Africa.

We will also have a local guide and muleteers with our own cook so all meals will be provided.

Jebel Sahro

The Jebel Sahro is a range of mountains situated between the High Atlas and the Sahara. The region is drained by the Dades and Draas valleys. In contrast to the greener, more fertile slopes to the North, the landscape is one of a vivid oasis set beneath barren mountain slopes. Palm trees abound, and roses form hedgerows between small fields.

Architecturally, the region is stunning, with mud-brick Kasbahs lining the road, which in spite of the state of disrepair, make a spectacular sight.

This region offers a sense of isolation not found in the more populated ranges. It is not often visited by westerners, and as such the inhabitants are more hospitable and friendly.

We may be trekking on a trail beneath date palms or through almond groves watered by an ancient well, then onto plateaus where nomads live in their black felt tents.

Camels can be seen silhouetted against the skyline, and the distant sound of a reed flute played by a shepherd is often heard. Sit and be amazed by looking at the night sky and see stars as you have never seen them before.

We will hopefully have the opportunity to spend some time on a short camel trek to experience the Sahara.
