If you have always been in love with mountains, and want to experience this love on another level, then our 4-day Toubkal Mount winter trek is what you are looking for.

You will meet your guide in Imlil, where your adventure will begin.
You will follow the path uphill in a serious hike crossing the Mizane Valley, then towards the shrine of Sidi Chamharouch. The latter is a convenient halfway point to rest and enjoy a picnic lunch.
The final hours of the hike will take us to the Toubkal refuge, where we will spend the night. The refuge is pretty basic and covers your necessities. It has a lounge area with a fireplace and a heater to warm you up. There are toilets and hot showers. Overall the refuge is clean and well kept.
