Trek in the contrasting landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert all on one trip! This promises to be an unforgettable challenge. We hope that an attainable fundraising target and Marrakech being well connected by budget airlines, will open this challenge up to all!
You will begin your time in Morocco in the capital, Marrakech, where you will have a guided tour of Old Medina to get you used to your surroundings, to acclimatize and prepare for the trek. The following day you begin the ascent to the highest peak in North Africa (4,167m), a tough climb and freezing temperatures at the top will mean having to use crampons! Finally, you will travel to the Sahara Desert via the World Heritage site at Ait Benhaddou and trek in the dunes. As a perfect farewell and end to the challenge, you will have a sunset camel ride through the Sahara.
* Based on a 7 day trip, 4 days of which are over Easter weekend.
