The Moroccan Atlas mountains, with Mount Toubkal (4167 m), highest peak in North Africa, are a fantastic ground for winter trekking. This itinerary includes a day of acclimatization in the Imlil valley, climb to the refuge of Toubkal, which will be our base camp for Ouanoukrim (4088 m) and then the summit climbs.

: Arrive in Marrakech. Met upon arrival and transfer to a hotel.

: Marrakech - Imlil. Drive to Imlil which is the starting point of our trek.Overnight in a traditional guesthouse.

: Imlil - Tizi Mzik - Imlil. Acclimatisation day around the Imlil Valley. One option is to trek to a col at 2660m. / 8727ft. in the nearby Mezzik Valley. Return to Imlil.Overnight in a guesthouse.

: Imlil - Toubkal Refuge. Ascend to the shrine at Sidi Chamharouch. Continue ascent to reach the Neltner Refuge (3207m. / 10,521ft.) our accommodation for the next 3 nights.

: Refuge - Ras n'Ouankrim - Refuge. We now have two big mountain days. The guides will decide in which order we tackle the peaks. Toubkal is our main objective but if the weather is stable we may opt to first make an ascent of Ouanoukrim (4089m./ 13,415ft.), a straightforward climb with a final scramble to reach the summit.

: Refuge - Summit - Refuge. If we have opted to save North Africa's highest peak for today, we will make the steep ascent to the summit of Jebel Toubkal (4167m. / 13,672ft.). After time to enjoy the panoramic views we return to the Neltner Refuge for a final night.
