Activity Level

A wonderful rock climbing course for novices and experts in the 400m-high walls of Todra gorges, with the option to improvise and explore the area, getting in contact with nomads and local population.

The adventure begins upon arrival in Marrakech - you’ll get a brief glimpse of this fascinating city (a prelude of the half-day you’ll spend here at the end of the trip) - and transfer to Todra by crossing the majestic Atlas, being driven through breathtaking, unspoilt landscapes and isolated villages. You’ll arrive at the gorge in the evening, with a little time to get familiar with the area before the climbing begins. In the evening, you’ll enjoy a dinner at a guesthouse set right by the crags.

Night: Guesthouse in Todra gorge.

In the early morning, we'll begin our rock climbing training/guided session with a group of excellent certified climbing guides, familiar with the area. Julio Soares, an expert climber who has set many of the routes in the gorges, will lead the team.

If you are a confident climber you will be guided on where to climb according to your interest. If you need to learn then no worries! Our climbing instructors will guide you on how to start with this amazing sport!

After lunch, there will be the option to keep climbing/training, take a break, or participate in the many activities available. Among others, a trek to salt mines where the mineral has been extracted for hundreds of years or exploring the area further.

In the evening, we'll return to our guesthouse for a nice local dinner and a well-deserved rest.

Nights: Guesthouse in Todra gorge.

On this last day of travel, we'll head back to Marrakech early in the morning so that there's enough time to enjoy the city. Wander through its ancient medina, walk on the narrow meandering streets, and visit its famous marketplace square, Jemaa el Fna.

Before getting to the city, we'll make a stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified city that has appeared in many films, and a routine stop for merchants that travelled on the Trans-Saharan trade route.

A comfortable riad in the city's medina will be our lodging for the evening.

Night: Riad in Marrakech.

Breakfast will be served at the riad on this final day of the tour. There will be transfers to the airport arranged according to flight schedules.
