  TOP TRIP Summer Mount Toubkal 4167m long weekend

Mount Toubkal 4167m is the highest peak in North Africa, and is brilliant objective for a long weekend. Our itinerary has been designed for keen walkers, as the ascent is non-technical, but involves some easy scrambling, and you can ascend two 4000m peaks, Mount Toubkal 4167m and Ouankarim 4089m. From the summits, the views are amazing across the mountains to Marrakech to the north, and the start of the Sahara to the south. Enjoy the local cuisine, couscous, mechoui, pastilla and tajine, as Moroccan food is considered by many to be the best in Africa. In the souk markets, many try and haggle for souvenirs. All meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are included on trek. Whilst in Marrakech you stay in a 4* hotel on a B&B basis. Click for details

The timings for the Lake District weekends and days are such that you can arrive in Windermere (Lake District) just after 9am on the first train from London or Manchester (on West Coast main line), and can depart after the guiding in the afternoon so no accommodation is required for day adventures, and only 1 night is needed for full weekends.
