Description

Beautiful hike of an affordable level, real altitude trekking with the ascent to Toubkal, facilitated by the practice of the Art of walking that I will have the pleasure to teach throughout the days so that each participant can walk with more pleasure and less effort.

The panorama at the top of Toubkal, the highest point in North Africa, offers spectacular views of the entire Atlas Mountains, as well as to the south, the Jebel Saghro and Siroua and the vast desert plains. A great adventure to know the summits and also take a step towards you!
