Climb Dates

Toubkal Climb Dates

You don't need to climb on these dates shown below. We publish them only for those who wish to climb with others they don't already know. The majority of our clients choose their own dates (at no additional cost), though most request us to open up their climbs for others to join - simply so as to have extra company on the trek.

If you decide to join a group, you don't need to worry about crowds. Except by special request and agreement, our climbs are limited to 8 trekkers so as to ensure that the guide can closely monitor everyone's condition, ensure all their needs are being met, and that everyone has the chance to speak to the guide about anything that's on their mind.

Our standard maximum group size is 8 trekkers (except where augmentation is requested by private groups). 

In the table below where a πŸ”’appears in the "Places" column, this indicates that the group have requested that their climb be private. This is often the case with families, for instance. "Couples" means that only couples are invited to join.

  • πŸ‘Œ = indicates that the likelihood of the climb going ahead is highly likely
    • πŸ€” = indicates that the climb's likelihood on these dates is looking doubtful*
      • πŸ“† = previous COVID-deferral / dates are expected to be amended*
        • βŒ› = status expected to be updated imminently
          • πŸ‘ͺ = only families may join

                      Calculating Flight Arrival and Departure Dates

                      Please plan to arrive in Morocco on the day prior to the climb start date, or earlier, and to depart on the day following the climb end date, or later. If you have a compressed schedule, however, and you are able to obtain a late evening flight from Marrakech, it is possible to fly home on the same day your climb ends. 

                      The best time to climb Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and North Africa, largely depends on your preferences and the type of experience you're seeking. Here are the main factors to consider for each season:


                      The weather on Mount Toubkal can be highly variable, and climbers should be prepared for a range of conditions. The mountain is located in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, and the weather can change quickly and dramatically.


                      Since most summit bids start from base camp at around 0400 am, with exact start time usually depending on the guide's assessment of the group's pace over the preceding few days, most of the approach to the summit happens in darkness.
