Morocco Trek 2023

05 October 2023 - 09 October 2023 Morocco

First climbed in 1923, Velindre are delighted to offer our latest overseas treks – the 100th Anniversary climb of North Africa’s highest peak – Mount Toubkal. Located in southwestern Morocco, Mt. Toubkal is the tallest peak in the Atlas Mountains standing at 4,167 metres (13,671ft) high.

Our 5 day trip comprises of a 3 day trek in and around the foothills of Toubkal where villages have remained largely unaffected by the changes that have taken place in Morocco’s lowland country and cities in the past few decades. With their traditional architecture intact, these villages cling to the side of mountains, seemingly carved into the rock in layers of terraces that appear to defy gravity.

It is through this glorious unchanged panorama that our trek culminates with our ascent to the summit of Mount Toubkal, or as it is locally known Adrar n’dem – Mountain of Mountains, the tallest peak in the Arab World.  Following our trek we will celebrate our achievement in majestic Marrakech.

Every penny and each mile will help raise vital funds for Velindre Cancer Centre and in turn, help provide Hope for more cancer patients and families in Wales.
