Trip Overview

A fantastic winter trek in the dramatic and isolated Anti-Atlas mountains. Marvel at kasbahs perched above terraced valleys and wide oases, as well as distant peaks fading into the desert haze. The ascent of Jebel Aklim (2531m) provides wonderful views of the snow-covered High Atlas. Walking through small Berber villages brings you closer to the locals and their way of life. The trek ends in Taroudant, with time to experience the souks and the ancient city walls.

Is This Trip for You?

This trip includes 5 days point-to-point walking with full porterage. The maximum altitude is 2531m, with an overall average of 1830m. This trek involves walking on rough trails and paths scattered with loose stones; some days are demanding although no great altitude is reached and there are no great extremes of temperature to contend with. It is possible that on some nights there may be a frost, especially between November and February.

Hotel accommodation on this trip is basic, but clean and comfortable. All nights camping are wild with no showers, but a basic toilet block is set up, for us to use. In recent months local authorities have been clamping down on wild camping, despite it being perfectly legal. It may happen that we have to move to gites on some nights. 

Please note Ramadan runs from 5th May - 4th June 2019 and 23rd April to 23rd May 2020 - During Ramadan, our local guides and drivers choose to work and so we continue to run trips in this period. However, the energy levels of our staff and some local guides may be a bit lower and some restaurants may be closed during the day. Ramadan is a special time to visit a Muslim country - each evening the streets empty for an hour while everyone breaks their fast, and there's a feeling of festivity in the air at sundown.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Group

There will be a local leader, driver and local muleteers/guides throughout. A second leader will join the group for all walking days for groups of 11 or more.

  • Day 2

    Drive to Taroudant for lunch; continue to Irghem. Trek to first campsite.

    From Agadir we drive inland to Taroudant where we'll enjoy a brief tour, including time for a coffee on the square. We have lunch in the oasis of Tiout before continuing onto Ighrem, a copper town that has survived for centuries on its trade of pots and water urns with the Saharan caravans. It lies on a plateau near the Tizi'n'Touzlimt pass (1820m), where the road to Tata and the desert landscape meet the Anti-Atlas range. Here we start our trek into the mountains towards our camping spot for the evening, Tagragra No. 1. Perched on a plateau the sunrise in the morning is well worth any early night.

We finally arrive at our campsite for the evening close to the village of M'dint (City of Cats). Nestled in a valley of olive groves and small trickling streams the camp site is protected from the elements and provides a peaceful resting spot.

  • Day 6

    Continue our trek through this stunning remote region. With a chance to swim in natural pools.

    Leaving the village of M'dint, we cross two cols, slowly weaving our way up the valley. The villagers are very friendly and if we are lucky we may get invited in to try some mint tea and local delicacies. Passing through ancient olive plantations we admire the irrigation channels before resting for a picnic lunch under the shady trees. Be sure to hunt out the small river for a soothing paddle! We work our way up the last pass of Tizgue for a steady uphill push, well worth it as we are rewarded with views of our entire route. Our campsite rests next to ancient argan trees and there is a natural series of rock pools where we can enjoy a swim and a wash as the sun sets.

All ascents, descents and distances listed above have been measured by our local partners or tour leaders. Please note that different GPS measuring devices can give differing results dependent on the barometric pressures at the time. Measurements stated throughout these trips notes are given to help you understand the types of terrain and distances you will encounter.

Accommodation

Hotels & Camping

Camping on this trip is always full service but in wild camps, as official campsites simply do not exist in the areas we visit. Wild camping means there is no ablutions or toilet block. A basic toilet tent is erected at each camp. All camp chores are done for you from erecting and dismantling your tent to all the cooking and washing up. A table and chairs are also provided for meal times.

On our last night we stay in the pretty Riad Hida, on the road back to Taroudant near the village of Souss. It offers an outdoor pool with a furnished terrace and a beautiful Moroccan style garden. The perfect place to relax after 4 days under canvas. Single room (for hotel nights only) on this trip subject to availability and on request

Where a single supplement is available, paying for a single only guarantees a room for single use. It does not always mean a twin or double room will be provided for sole occupancy.

Accommodation - Pre trip

Pre-tour accommodation available in Agadir on request. 

Accommodation - Post trip

Post-tour accommodation available in Taroudant or Agadir on request. 

Single supplement from £50.00

Food & Transport

Eating & Drinking

Moroccan food is generally speaking, excellent. At the beginning and the end of the trek there will be the opportunity to eat in restaurants where 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.

On the trek all of the food is provided.

Breakfast is likely to consist of a variety of breads with jam and other condiments as well as tea and coffee, and porridge. Protein or fruit is a rarity.

Lunch is usually plenty of salads, plus a hote dish and vegetables. Dinner usually sees a variety of dishes served that include seasonal fruit and vegetables as well as some meat and tinned fish as well as various rice, lentil and bean dishes. The choice tends to be large so there is usually something for everyone. It is certainly not limited to cous cous and tagine and is often commented as a highlight of the trip!

Vegetarians can be catered for and there is usually a variety of bean/pulse dishes as well as omelettes and vegetables. Please note that 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.

Bottled water can be purchased at the beginning of the trip and the team will store this for you throughout the trek, please note however that recycling is not fully established in Morocco so plastic bottles are increasingly a waste problem. Alternatively, there will be opportunities to fill your water bottles up from taps. This will need to be purified so please bring your own purification tablets of needed and purify for 2 hours or as instructed on the packet. This is a popular choice to avoid purchasing plastic bottles.

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

 

Transportation

For this trip we use a private bus, the size of which will depend on the group size, with a local driver. Roads in Morocco are reasonable and driving conditions in towns and on the plains are good. On mountain roads, the pace will be slower. Although the buses normally have air-conditioning and heating, this is not up to European standards.

Weather & Seasonality

When to go

For winter treks, the days are usually warm (above 20degC) in Agadir and Taroudant while the nights can be cold, with temperatures dropping to 5degC. Rain cannot be ruled out but is unlikely to be prolonged. On trek, the days should be warm (15-20degC) with clear skies, but the nights are generally cold and sometimes drop below freezing. On the high ridges and summits there is often snow but not normally enough to stop us walking. Very occasionally snow has been known at lower altitudes but it does not lie for long.

For spring and autumn treks, the days are pleasant (20-26ºC) in Agadir and Taroudant and the nights mild. Rain is infrequent. On trek the days should be warm to hot (18- 28ºC with clear skies and strong sun) the nights will be cool (8-18ºC). At this time of year it is unlikely there will be any snow on the higher ridges. Rain cannot be ruled out but is unlikely to be prolonged. Please note mountain weather is always unpredictable and as a result we may very occasionally be forced to amend the itinerary for part of the trek.

Weather Charts

Joining Instructions

Travelling flight inclusive from London: 8 days

We normally use the scheduled services of British Airways, EasyJet or Royal Air Maroc (depending on availability). As flight timings and schedules change regularly we recommend you call one of our specialist sales staff or your agent to confirm up‐to date timings. Please note timings may change at a later date and cannot be confirmed until approximately two weeks before departure. 

There are alternative flight options from regional airports (Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester…) Please ask our Sales team for more information. 

Travelling land only: 8 days starting and ending in Agadir

Your trip normally starts at our accommodation in Agadir on day 1 of the itinerary. Details of how to reach the start point are provided in the Final Joining Instructions ‐ sent approximately two weeks before departure.

Regional Flights

The Flight Inclusive price is based on a London departure, but we are happy to tailor this to your local or regional airport. Please ask about flights from local or regional airports.

If booking regional flights other than with Exodus, you must allow a minimum connecting time (in addition to the international check-in time) of 1 hour at Gatwick, and 1.5 hours at Heathrow; this is longer than the official minimum, but baggage handling is known to be subject to delays.

What to Take

Essential Equipment

  • 4 season sleeping bag - it can get very cold at night!
  • Warm trousers
  • Long-sleeved thermal top and long johns
  • Hiking boots with good ankle support
  • Day pack
  • Water bottle
  • Water purification tablets
  • Warm hat and gloves
  • Sunglasses and sun cream
  • Waterproofs
  • Toilet paper
  • Towel
  • Torch (flashlight)
  • Sandals or trainers for the evening
  • Earplugs if you have trouble sleeping 

For November to January departures, we recommend:

  • 4 season sleeping bag
  • Fleece jacket

As Morocco is a strict Muslim country, we ask that you wear suitable clothing, i.e. over the knee skirts/shorts/trousers and with shoulders covered. Additionally, women should avoid wearing close-fitting or revealing clothes.

We believe in reducing our negative environmental impacts wherever possible, this goes for when you need to spend a penny in the great outdoors! If no facilities are available there may come a time when you need to go to the loo behind a tree/bush/rock. To avoid leaving toilet paper behind we recommend taking biodegradable dog poo/sandwich bags with you. Once you have done your business you can pop the used toilet roll in here and take it off the mountain or trail at the end of the day and dispose of it when there are appropriate facilities available.

Plastic bottles are a big issue in many countries where recycling isn’t yet widely available; they often end up in landfill sites or get burnt, both processes are harmful to the environment and we would like to reduce our impact here. In an effort to reduce waste from single-use plastic bottles we strongly encourage you to bring a means of purifying or filtering water which can be collected from streams. This can be done via water purification tablets, water bottles with a built in filter, portable filtration pumps or the use of sterilisation tools such as steripens. Steripens use UV light in order to kill viruses and bacteria as do purification tablets whilst filtration systems or bottles, obviously, filter these out. There are numerous brands available such as ‘Water-to-Go’, ‘Grayl’ and others, similarly there are numerous water filter pumps such as ‘Lifesaver Liberty’ and others. These are just suggestions of possible brands but you may want to research into which is most suitable for you. It is possible to buy bottles of water at various points but we discourage this as it contributes to plastic waste.

 

Optional Equipment

  • Walking poles

If you book this trip, we provide an Exodus kitbag to pack your luggage in whilst on trek (unless on booking you stated a preference not to receive one). If you book via an agent, it is at the agent’s discretion and you should speak directly to them to arrange delivery. Please note that if you book less than three weeks before the departure date we cannot guarantee that your kitbag will arrive before your trip starts, so if this is the case please contact us on [email protected] to let us know. For full T&Cs see www.exodus.co.uk/kitbags.

Practical Information

Passport

Morocco

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information below is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their travel agent or the relevant embassies. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects. 

Visa

Morocco

No visa required by British passport holders.

Visa regulations can change without notice: please check the current regulations in good time to obtain a visa if one is required.

Vaccination

Morocco

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Recommended vaccinations are: Tetanus, Typhoid and Hepatitis A.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

Bilharzia is known to occur in some of the lakes or rivers visited on this itinerary, we therefore advise all to take advice from your guide or leader locally before venturing for a swim.

The above information can change at short notice; as we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information. Please note: vaccinations that are routinely recommended to residents of the UK, North America or Australasia are not considered to form part of the travel health advice, and you should ensure these are kept up to date where necessary.

For additional information please visit: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

Local Time

Morocco's Timezone:
Africa/Brazzaville WAT (GMT +01:00)

Electricity

Morocco's Electricity:

127 & 220 Volts. Plug types C & E; establishments often take two round pin plugs. 

220 volts AC, 50 Hz. The gite does not have shaving points but there are electrical plugs in communal areas

Money

Morocco's Currency

The national currency of Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD), with an exchange rate at the time of publication (June 2017) of approximately 12.4 to the GBP,  9.8 to the USD, 7.4 to the CAD, 10.9 to the EUR, 7.5 to the AUD and 7.1 to the NZD. 

 

ATM Availability

It is easy to use Visa / MasterCard  at the ATM machines. Note that ATM machines are only available in larger towns and cities.

Credit cards are normally accepted for more expensive souvenirs, such as carpets (but shops may charge a 5% supplement for this).

Please do not bring travellers cheques

Extra Expenses & Spending Money

We recommend you change your money at the airport into the local currency, as Morocco only allows 1000 dirhams to be imported or exported.

There is a Bureau de Change outside of the Arrivals Hall which will have a shorter queue. When changing your money, ensure that you keep hold of your exchange receipt as you may need to show it at the airport bank at the end of your holiday where it's normally possible to change any unspent Dirham notes back into Euros, Sterling or US Dollars.

Please allow a few pounds to cover postcards, small souvenirs, soft drinks etc at the beginning and the end of the trek.

Tipping

Our local staff are paid well and fairly for their work with Exodus and tipping is at your discretion for both the leader and the local staff. However we would like to advise that tipping is part of the local culture and generally expected. If you do wish to tip, we have found it useful for the group to have a kitty for tipping – about £15 (approx. US$25) per person, this can ease confusion and embarrassment of not knowing how much or how little to tip local staff (such as drivers, cooks and guides). If you do not wish to join in on the group kitty, do not feel pressured. Many clients also wish to tip their leaders at the end of the trip, we suggest £15 ($20) on top of the kitty. This is completely at your own discretion and to be used as a guideline only.

Responsible Tourism

At Exodus we believe in the power of Responsible Travel.

Every time we travel, we are part of a global movement that creates jobs, builds more sustainable societies, encourages cultural understanding and safeguards common natural and cultural heritage. To learn more about what Responsible Travel means to Exodus click here…

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 16 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

In an emergency, please contact our 24 hour out of hours service on +44 (0) 844 326 7041.

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel Agent.
