The client must have their personal or family documentation in good order (identity card, military documentation, authorization for minors, visas, vaccination certificates, and any other documents that may be required).

Once the trip has started, if a request is made to change the contracted services for reasons not related to the agency (e.g., extending the number of nights of stay, changing the flight), the prices of the touristic services may not correspond to those published on the website that prompted the contract.


The customer may transfer their registration by being replaced by another person who meets all the required conditions for the trip, provided that they inform the selling agency at least seven days in advance and such transfer is possible under the applicable air transport regulations.

If the aforementioned circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency result in the cancellation of the trip, the client may choose to participate in another organized trip of equivalent price. If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

i) Such cancellation implies that the client is responsible for the payment of all charges arising from the beginning of the fulfillment of the contract and their withdrawal, as well as a percentage that can go up to 15% of the price of the trip.

ii) If applicable, the client will be refunded the difference between the amount paid and the aforementioned amounts.

Is this trip for me?

If you like hiking, if you want to climb over 4000m, if you want to discover a mountainous Morocco with its nomadic people, two challenges that reward you with landscapes as far as the eye can see... then yes, this trip is for you.

Who will guide this trip?

The tour leader will be climber João Garcia, who has climbed the 14 highest mountains in the world. There will also be a Moroccan guide.

What kind of accommodation do I stay in during this trip?

You stay in three types of accommodation. In Marrakesh you stay in a Riad (a typical Moroccan hotel) in a double room with bathroom. During the trekking on the approach to the mountain you stay in double tents and stay one night in dormitories at the Toubkal refuge,

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

4x4 car or minibus.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

On this trip there is a group flight, that is, there is a specific time for arrival and the transfers will be according to the arrival of that flight. Those who opt for different flights will have to be at the airport at the same time to take advantage of the transfers, otherwise they must arrange their own transportation to the accommodation.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

Papa-Léguas will send you a proposal for the "group flights". After you receive the flight simulation, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas or another agency, or online.

Where do I meet the group?

On arrival in Marrakesh, if you are on the group flights.

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another person who is signed up. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Morocco?

It is not advisable at all. Take your own filter or fill your canteen at places that the guides tell you are safe. You can always buy bottled water.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

For meals in Marrakesh, which do not include drinks including water, 60 Eur is sufficient.

Is insurance included in the land program?

It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. The included insurance does not cover COVID-19, but you can trigger an optional insurance policy suggested by Papa-Léguas that does cover COVID-19. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?

The necessary documentation may vary, depending on your nationality, the country of origin and the places you will travel to. For further information, consult the relevant embassy websites or contact Papa-Léguas.

What equipment is essential for this trip?

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?

Health restrictions may vary, depending on various factors, such as your country of origin. We recommend scheduling a Travel Medicine consultation before your trip. For further information, consult the websites of relevant agencies or contact Papa-Léguas.

What kind of training should I do to prepare for this trip?

Participants are expected to be in good physical shape. This trip is undoubtedly demanding in terms of physical preparation. Therefore it is advisable that the participants of this expedition prepare 2 months in advance. Endurance training should be the main goal, acquired either by running twice a week (30min) or on a weekend walk of more than 4h with 6Kg min. of weight in the backpack. Biking or swimming in the same proportion, are also excellent substitutes for those who cannot run due to injury. Tip: during the week add "the useful to the pleasant" and whenever possible, climb the stairs at work, at home, and elsewhere, because climbing stairs is an exercise that works the same muscle groups as when you climb a mountain.
