Our summer trips are camping treks and our route takes us past some spectacular waterfalls, over high passes and provides superb views of the Atlas Mountains and on clear days, all the way to the Anti-Atlas and beyond to the Sahara. The weather is generally warm and other than having a good level of fitness no technical skills are required.
On our winter trips we trek directly to the Toubkal Refuge and since it is generally much colder, we stay in the refuge instead of camping. You don’t need to be any fitter for the winter trip, but you do need to be familiar with the use of ice axe and crampons. The crisp cold winter days can often provide better views than in the summer although these are not as guaranteed as the weather can be a bit less predictable.
