Itinerary Day per Day:

Day 1: Airport – Marrakech

Transfer from the airport to your hotel in Marrakech.

Day 2: Marrakech – Imlil – Tachdirte

We leave Marrakech after breakfast and drive to Imlil (1740m) via Asni. Imlil is the principal trailhead for walkers. This is the place where we meet our mules’ team and once all our gear is loaded, we begin walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt, some 8 km from Imlil. Soon the trail begins to rise as we climb up to the pass at Tizi ‘n Tamatert (2279m). We then descend to the pretty village of Ouaneskra (2200m) and continue, for a further half-hour to Tachedirt (2400m), where we set up camp near the river.
Approx. 4 hours walking.

Day 3: Tachdirte – Tizi n’Likemt – Azzib Likemt

We immediately begin a long, slow ascent to the pass at Tizi Likemt (3555m). At the top, we enjoy our first fine view of the Toubkal Massif before a long downhill descent to the village of Azib Likemt (2200m), where we set up our camp for the night.
Approx. 5 hours walking.

Day 4: Azzib Likemt – Assif n’ Ouraie – Ighir n Tagnite – Amsouzarte

This day is going to be a long but quite easy day, passing many different landscapes. From Tizi ‘n Ououraine (3120m) we enjoy further views of the Toubkal Massif, including the summit, the east face, and the Ifni Lake (3876m). The trail leads on towards Amsouzart (1700m), one of the most striking villages in the region, where we spend the night in a local gite or in camping. Approx: 6 hours walking.

Day 5: Amsouzarte – Ait Igrane – Ifni Lake

West of Amsouzert is several small villages, which we explore as we make our way towards Ifni Lake (2300m), the only lake in the Massif. It is a memorable sight, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and giant heaps of rubble, and is unusually deep.
We expect to arrive by lunchtime and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore. We camp tonight in this area. Approx: 4 hours walking.

Day 6:Ifni lake – Tizi n’Ouanoums – Toubkal Refuge

By now we should be both fit and acclimatized, and ready to tackle the hardest day of the trek. We make our way along a steep path that leads up a seemingly endless scree slope. At length, we reach the pass at Tizi n’Ouanoums (3664m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock. From here it is a long zigzag descent to Neltner Refuge (3200m), where we spend the night in tents. Approx: 6 hours walking.

Day 7: Toubkal Refuge – Toubkal summit – Imlil – Marrakech

We leave before dawn, following a well-worn route to the summit of Toubkal (4167m). If conditions are good it should take no more than 2-3 hours to reach the summit, where we enjoy beautiful views of the entire Atlas range and the Marrakech plains beyond. Returning to base, we then descend fairly rapidly to the villages of Sidi Chamharouch and Aremd, before following the Mizane River, along a well-forested trail, to the trailhead at Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech.
Approx. 9 hours walking.
