Internationale groepsreis Mt Toubkal Climb

Exhilarating one-week trek to the summit of North Africa's highest mountain
8 dagen vanaf € 575,- (excl. vlucht)

Food

  • All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners included. Moroccan food is, generally speaking, excellent though not particularly varied. Breakfasts usually consist of porridge, bread and jam with coffee or tea. Main meals will often be in the form of tajines of meat and vegetables with a great mix of herbs and spices and light fluffy cous cous. Salads will often comprise of both cooked and raw vegetables including tomatoes, smoked peppers and aubergine. Seafood is also popular as are dried fruits and pastries.  When eating out, meals are reasonably priced - kebab and bread cost only about £4 (approx. US$6.50). In main towns it is possible to find very good French and Moroccan restaurants where a meal with wine will cost anything from £20 (approx. US$30) upwards. Generally dinner is likely to cost between £5-10 (approx. US$8-15) depending on what you drink. £15 (approx. US$25) a day for food should be sufficient. Local beers, wines and soft drinks are available at very reasonable prices but you can pay UK prices or more for imported alcohol. Your leader can help recommend restaurants each evening. Vegetarians can be catered for but there is a fairly limited choice of cous cous and tajine or omelettes. This is particularly the case during the more rural or trekking sections of the trip. If you have any special dietary requirements you should inform the Exodus Office prior to the trip. If you have a specific medical/dietary need (i.e. coeliac or vegan) you may find it helpful to bring some items of food with you from home.  We advise you buy your own water purification tablets in the UK and take them with you. Bottled water can be purchased throughout the trip, but as recycling is not fully established in Morocco plastic bottles are an increasing waste problem.

We encourage you to bring water bottles and a means of purifying, filtering or sterilising water (see packing section) in order to be able to drink cool water from mountain streams. Bottles of water are available but we strongly discourage buying these as it contributes to plastic waste.

Route 8 daagse rondreis Mt Toubkal Climb

Mt Toubkal, the highest peak in north Africa, stands 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. Our trek passes through impressive landscapes on well-defined paths and is, surprisingly, not too strenuous. As we climb higher, the paths do become steeper but the gain in altitude awards dramatic views towards Marrakech and the spectacular Anti-Atlas mountains. Passing through remote villages and terraced fields we gain an insight into the life of the friendly Berber people and finish with free time in the colourful imperial city of Marrakech.
