Option toubkal, Atlas Quest, acclimatize to altitude

Why acclimatize to the altitude ?

One of the characteristics of the ATLAS QUEST is itineraries at high altitude (average altitude is 2400 m). The start of all the races is at 2 620m and there are 6 cols above 3000m, one at 3690 – there are no other races with similar altitude profiles. It is quite possible to participate, and even perform, at the ATLAS QUEST without an acclimatization.

After listening to the feedback and requests from racers over the years, we decided to add the experience to climb the Djebl Toubkal to our race package, offering an additional chance to finish the race in good conditions as well as a possibility to discover new territories.

An all-inclusive package - 330€ (group 290€ for 10 pax)

If you have chosen to experience the Toubkal before the Atlas Quest, we will welcome you at the airport in Marrakech and transfer you to the village of Imlil (departure September the 30th at 18:00 from the airport), a Berber version of Chamonix, and you will stay in a charming inn. The following morning you will start hiking towards the Toubkal CAF mountain hut, accompanied by your mountain guide and mules to carry your bags. After an afternoon spent in altitude, a nice evening meal a good night’s sleep you will start very early in the morning, at the light of your headlamp. After summiting you will hike back down to Imlil. From there a shuttle will bring you ( to the ATLAS QUEST base camp at the end of the day)

Should you have chosen to exeperience the Toubkal after the Atlas Quest, you will be transferred to Imlil from Oukaimeden and after the experience from Imlil to Marrakech, Wednesday in the afternoon.
