Discover the world of the Berbers and summit Mount Toubkal (4,167m), the highest mountain in North Africa. The trail takes you through the wild-flower meadows and scattered orchards of the Ouirgane National Park, on into the rugged Azzaden Valley, and along a mountain stream to the stunning Ighouliden waterfalls, where a revitalising dip awaits the weary traveller!
En route you'll get a tantalising glimpse into the day-to-day life of Morocco's Berbers, whose ancient mud-built villages cling precariously to the high mountain ridges. The climax of the trek is an early-morning hike to the summit of mighty Mount Toubkal, where you're rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Atlas mountain range and the Sahara Desert.
It's then back to Marrakesh for a day of well-earned relaxation. Rest those weary legs on the hotel rooftop, or take to the medina for a spot of shopping and some fine dining. The ancient walled city is famous for its medieval-style squares, where tradesmen such as artisan carpenters and metal workers ply their crafts amidst the tantalising chaos of the myriad souks.
In the evening, head over to the famous Djemaa el Fna plaza, a UNESCO-recognised centre of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which each night plays host to a vast cavalcade of traditional performers, from acrobats and snake charmers to storytellers and magicians. The square is a sensory wonderland, with sights, sounds, and smells that will stay with you forever - the perfect place to round off an unforgettable trip!
