Ski mountaineering in Marocco on the Haut-Atlas snow
Ski mountaineering in Marocco on the Haut-Atlas snow

This is a trip to be done with your skis on while discovering Morocco and the peaks of the Haut-Atlas Mountains, a perfect combination of hiking and ski mountaineering while enjoying flavours, fragrances, landscapes, culture and the wonderful colours of the region: the small agricultural villages, the Sahara desert with its endless dunes, the snow-capped mountains that reach a height of over 4000 m.a.s.l. Mules and bearers make up part of the scenery of this magical trip through the snow of the Sahara. An adventure with the aim of conquering some of  the highest mountains of northern Africa, like the peaks of Akioud, Ras, Afella –  all of which are just over 4000 m.a.s.l. in height – and even the highest one of all Mount Jabel Toubkal (4167 m.a.s.l.)
