Top 5 Morocco Trekking Trails

1. Mount Ouanoukrim
Standing over 13,415 feet in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, Mount Ouanoukrim offers a challenging trek with two summits, Timzguida and Ras Ouanoukrim. Despite being slightly shorter than Mount Toubkal, the route is more demanding, rewarding hikers with stunning views of the Atlas Mountains.

2. Mount Toubkal
At 13,670 feet, Mount Toubkal is North Africa’s highest peak, attracting seasoned hikers seeking a challenging trek. The trek to the summit is not for the faint-hearted and will push you to your limits, but the beautiful mountain scenery inspires and spurs you on to the top with each step. Along the way, you’ll walk through traditional Berber villages where you can meet the local people and get an insight into their extraordinary life in the Atlas Mountains.

3. Lake Tamda
Nestled between Jebel Tamda and Jebel Anghomar, Lake Tamda is a picturesque mountain oasis at 7437 feet. Hugged on all sides by dramatic white rocks, the lake is a remote mountain oasis. You might be surprised to find trout swimming in the water and if you fancy a dip yourself, you can join them. There’s a real sense of calm here and you might be tempted to linger a little longer and soak up the peaceful ambience and stunning surroundings.

4. Jebel Aklim
Towering 8,304 feet above sea level, Jebel Aklim is one of the tallest peaks in the Anti-Atlas. There’s no denying it’s a steep climb to the summit but it offers some of the best views you’ll experience when trekking in Morocco. As you navigate a high col and several ridges, you can pause to look back at the sensational pink-hued landscape where the rock is made up of Quartzite and shale sediments. The area surrounding Jebel Aklim is rugged and barren and the mountain itself is what’s left of an ancient volcano.

5. Mount n’Oughlagal:
Approaching Mt n’Oughlagal from around the back, a short hike and a sandy scramble up this modest peak introduces you to some breath-taking views and you can just about make out Mount Toubkal in the distance. En route, you might even meet a local goat herder or a shepherd steering their herds through the pastures. With fewer crowds, hikers can enjoy the tranquility and remoteness of the mountains.

The walks were stunning, challenging in part , and gave a good flavour of Liguria and its dramatic coastline. We had a brilliant Group whom all got on well and enjoyed each others company and support whilst sharing the experience of the walks and the restaurants we used in the evenings, the optional trip to Lucca was outstanding as was the coastal ferry from Porto Venere which should become a fixture on the Exodus itinerary

I can’t fault anything about the holiday. The accommodation was good, the staff friendly and helpful, the meals excellent and my dietary needs catered for. The added bonus was the swimming pool at the end of a hot day’s hiking. Our group was small and the majority of us got on amazingly well together. The walks were varied and interesting with the chance to visit several villages along the way.

What is the highest peak in Morocco?

Mount Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa, never mind Morocco, sitting at 13,670 feet above sea level.

Book onto one of our Mount Toubkal tours to push yourself during your trekking trip to Morocco. You’ll trek right up to the top, passing ancient Berber villages and enjoying jaw-dropping views across the pre-Sahara landscape and neighboring mountains.

When should I hike in Morocco?

The best time to hike in Morocco is during the spring and fall months, specifically from April to May and September to November. During these times, the weather is typically mild and pleasant, with comfortable temperatures for hiking in the mountains. The summer months can be extremely hot, especially in the lower elevations, while winter brings cold temperatures and the possibility of snow in the higher regions, which may affect hiking conditions.

FAQs on Morocco hiking tours

What can I expect on an Exodus hiking tour of Morocco?

On a small-group Exodus hiking tour of Morocco, you can expect expert guidance from experienced local leaders who know the terrain intimately. Our tours offer a mix of treks and cultural experiences, allowing you to immerse yourself in the beauty of the landscapes while learning about the rich history and traditions of Morocco. Accommodations range from comfortable hotels and traditional riads to camps, providing a well-rounded experience of the country’s diverse hospitality. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with local communities, gaining insights into their way of life and enjoying authentic Moroccan cuisine along the way.

What should I wear for my hiking tour in Morocco?

As with any hiking or trekking trip, you’ll need sturdy walking boots and thick socks to tackle any uneven terrain. On many of our tours, you’ll be doing an average of six hours of walking a day, so make sure you feel prepared.

For walking tours in Morocco, we recommend loose, breathable athletic wear designed to absorb sweat, and shorts that aren’t too revealing. Sunglasses and a sun hat are essential, as you’ll be exposed to the sun for most of the day.

For downtime outside of hiking, you might prefer loose, breathable clothing made from linen or cotton. Keep in mind that it is customary for women to keep their shoulders covered in Morocco.  Having layers handy will also mean you’ll be comfortable during the daytime and in the evenings when it’s cooler. The climate can be more unstable up in the Atlas Mountains, so we suggest bringing a light waterproof just in case. Be sure to check your trip notes for more detailed advice on packing.

How do I plan a Morocco hiking tour?

Planning a trip to Morocco is easy when you book a hiking tour with Exodus.

What is the best city to visit in Morocco?

Outside the hikes themselves on our Morocco hiking tours, Marrakech stands out as a vibrant and culturally rich city to visit. Its bustling streets are filled with unique sights, smells, and sounds, offering an immersive experience unlike any other. From the lively souks and historic medina to the stunning architecture and vibrant atmosphere, Marrakech captivates visitors with its charm and allure. Many of our hiking tours begin or end in Marrakech, allowing you a taste of this incredible city. Looking to extend your stay? Talk to our travel specialists!

What is the weather like in Morocco?

In Morocco, the weather varies depending on the region, but generally, temperatures range from around 50°F to 80°F throughout the year. During the summer months, particularly in July and August, temperatures can soar above 100°F in some inland areas, while coastal regions tend to be slightly cooler. In the winter, temperatures can drop to around 40°F in the north and central regions, with colder temperatures and even snow possible in the Atlas Mountains. Spring and fall offer milder temperatures, making them the most pleasant times to visit for outdoor activities like hiking.
