12 days point-to-point walking
During this varied and challenging trek we aim to summit Jebel Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak (4167m), Jebel Ouanakrim (4088m) and Jebel Adrar n'Dern (4001m). We also discover seldom-visited gorges, passes and valleys and are rewarded with spectacular views as far as the Sahara. Campsites are mostly in high valleys and one night we camp near Lake Ifni with the chance of an afternoon swim. When our trek is over we return to the fabulous city of Marrakech to cool off in its pleasant gardens or to visit the vibrant souks.

Hotels, Camping & Gites
Camping on this trip is always in wild camps, as official campsites simply do not exist in the areas we visit. Wild camping means there is no ablutions or toilet block; however, there is sometimes the possibility to find a private spot at a nearby river for a quick wash. Ground conditions and space permitting, a basic toilet tent is erected at each camp. All camp chores are done for you from erecting and dismantling your tent to all the cooking and washing up. A table and chairs are also provided for meal times.

On days 4, 7 and 11 we spend the night at a simple gite with showers and toilets. On days 9 and 10, we stay at Toubkal Basecamp with toilets and warm showers available in the refuge building for a small payment. Please note the refuge can be rather crowded with other independent travellers.

All the hotels we use are of a similar standard, clean and functional although the rooms and facilities may be basic and limited and the breakfasts simple.

Single supplement GBP100

Interesting facts
Triglav summiting or how to tame Goldenhorn

Triglav is the Slovenia’s highest mountain, featuring three peaks with the highest one reaching 2864 meters. According to one of the legends, there was a magical Goldenhorn inhabiting the Triglav Mountains. The horns of the mysterious creature were made of gold and would make anyone who caught Goldenhorn forever rich. The Goldenhorn was never caught due to its artfulness in escaping from the chasers, even when injured. The magic power of Goldenhorn was hidden in a divine flower protecting him from deathly wounds. The flower was growing in the crevices of Triglav and boasted unfathomable beauty.
