Climbs of Mount Toubkal
The Atlas range extends 1500km across the north west corner of Africa, through Morocco, Algeria & Tunisia. The highest point in the range is Jebel Toubkal in Morocco, one of the most famous climbs in the Atlas Mountains. There are also a number of other peaks over 4000m high. The character of the peaks is very different in summer and winter with lots of snow and ice in the winter allowing winter climbing and mountaineering in the high Atlas mountains. We offer trips in both seasons to this mountain and a combination of treks in the area with the summit.
A walking trek through the Atlas Mountains takes you through the lands of the Berbers who have a history that pre-dates the arrival of Islam and the Arabs. Walking through the Moroccan Atlas is a wonderful way of exploring the area and also enjoying the fabled hospitality of these people, plus of course the food. This is an ancient culture and in many ways the people have changed little, their friendly nature and hospitality is a big part of the experience of being in the mountains.
