Winter Toubkal Ascent
Climbing a mountain in the summertime is tough. Climbing one in the winter? That's for adventurers only. While the climb up Mount Toubkal is the undisputed centrepiece of this week-long escapade in Morocco's Atlas Mountains, it's not the only once-in-a-lifetime encounter you'll have. Beginning in captivating Marrakech, you'll trek deep into the hills (no prior experience required promise!), happening upon snowbound Berber communities and' along the way, enjoy some of the most majestic mountainscapes you'll ever see along the way. Prepare to return home a completely different person than when you left.
