Snow & Sand Charity Challenge

14 September, 2017 - 14:15 to 24 September, 2017 - 10:45

Event Type: 

Experience the chill of Mount Toubkal and the searing heat of the desert - in one Challenge!

This challenge brings you a rare opportunity to experience the environmental extremes of Morocco in one amazing trip.

From the summit of Mount Toubkal, which at 4167m is North Africa's highest point, to the arid sands of the Sahara Desert and the magnificent dunes of the vast Erg Chicaga region.

There is a narrow window of opportunity to trek both of these areas at the same time; just before the heavy winter snow sets in on the mountains and as the searing summer heat in the dry desert starts to subside.  This is not only an unusual chance to experience extremes of terrain, temperature and living conditions, but a chance to experience to the full the magic of Morocco.

You will have the opportunity to explore Marrakech, before you depart for the Atlas mountains where you will meet your trek crew and mules. You will spend 2 days on your mountain trek, before you take a drive to the desert to commence your 5 day trek across the sand.

International flights return flights from London-Marrakesh, 2 nights accommodation in Marrakesh and 1 night in Ouarazazate are included, on a twin-share B & B basis.  All food and water is included in the trek, as well as road transport to and from trek start and finish points.  You will have an English speaking Moroccan guide for the whole experience.

All personal spending, tips, travel insurance and personal trekking equipment will be at your own cost.
