Morocco - Toubkal Mountain Trails

From the sands of the Sahara to the High Atlas mountains, Morocco offers a wide variety of landscapes. The Atlas mountain range runs through the middle of the country. Amongst the high barren peaks rising to over 4,000m are woodlands of pine, oak and cedar, open pastureland and small lakes.

The Toubkhal Trail and the Desert & Mountains of Marrakech are exciting horse trails through the High Atlas Mountains and close to Jbel (Mount) Toubkal (4,167m) the highest mountain in North Africa and second only to Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. 

Starting and finishing at the very comfortable Terres d’Amanar you follow mountain trails & paths and ride at an altitude between 1500 m & 3100 m. This trail can only be done in summer because many of these trails and passes are closed in winter due to snow.

In addition to the Toubkal Trail, we offer a number of different Desert Trails as well as a trail ride along the Atlantic coastline south of Essouraira where you ride along the beaches and through Argan Forests. There is the option to choose a camping or hotel based itinerary.

Other Moroccan trails include the Horse, Dunes & Nomads itinerary where you stay each night at a comfortable riad or lodge.

You will be riding amongst some seriously big mountains in spectacular scenery. It amazes me how people first settled in these inaccessible places.
My top tip:
Make sure you have comfortable boots which you can walk in, because there are times when you need to lead your horse on foot.
