The Magic of Marrakech
We begin and end our journey in the fabled city of Marrakech. Steeped in history and bustling with activity, the heart of Marrakech lies in the Djemma-el-Fna; the focal point where mountain Berbers and desert people from the south come to exchange news, haggle and trade in jelabahs, carpets and spices. There will be time to explore the souks and maze of alleyways and enjoy street entertainment at its very best. A scene straight out of 'Arabian Nights', the melee of jugglers, story-tellers, musicians, spice vendors and kebab stalls that gather each night at dusk provide a feast for the senses and memories that will last long after your return.
3-day Jebel Toubkal Trek
Leaving Marrakech behind, we drive high into the Atlas mountain range. Running east to west for some fifteen hundred miles and falling abruptly away to the Sahara desert in the south, the Atlas reaches a spectacular 4165m at the summit of Jebel Toubkal. From the village of Imlil, our mule-supported trek takes us first to the typical Berber village of Aremd (1950m). Admiring the dramatic views to the surrounding peaks, we continue to our camp (3125m). The toughest part of the trek is the non-technical but strenuous ascent of Jebel Toubkal itself and we aim to arrive just after sunrise. After spending time enjoying the stunning views and posing for the classic photo moment, we return to the camp and onto Aremd where we rest for the night. Returning to Imlil we drive back to Marrakech for our final afternoon in this glorious city.
