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.

In the case of cruises and air travel, the prescribed period will be fifteen days in advance.

The transfer of the registration makes both the transferor and the transferee jointly responsible for the payment of the trip price and any additional charges incurred.



Whenever there are external reasons that justify it, the organizing agency may change the order of the itineraries, modify the departure times, or substitute any of the planned hotels with others of similar category and location. The agency must inform the client of such changes as soon as they become aware of them.


When the tour is dependent on a minimum number of participants the Agency reserves the right to cancel the organized tour if the number of participants reached is less than the minimum. In such cases, the Client will be informed in writing of the cancellation within 15 (fifteen) days.


The prices in the program are based on the costs of services and exchange rates in effect on the date of printing of the program, and are therefore subject to change resulting from variations in the cost of transportation or fuel, duties, taxes, fees, and exchange rate fluctuations up to 20 days prior to the date of departure.


Once the tour has begun, no refund is due for services not used by the client due to unforeseeable circumstances or for reasons attributable to the client, except for refunds by the respective suppliers. Failure to provide services foreseen in the travel program for reasons attributable to the organizing agency and if it is not possible to replace them with equivalent ones, entitles the client receive a refund for the price difference between the originally anticipated services and the services actually provided.

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.

Dia 7 Imlil - Marrakesh

The day begins peacefully, without early alarm clocks. In the morning, we will set off towards Marrakesh, a distance of approximately 43 miles that will take about 1 hour and 30 minutes. In the afternoon, we will enjoy a half-day city tour of Marrakesh.

Marrakesh, known as the red city of the south, is located among immense palm trees in the Haouz plain. In its origin, the city was a meeting point of camel caravans that bridged Africa and the Mediterranean ports. Founded by Almoravids, during the XII century, growing in size and beauty as the centuries passed, becoming the capital of the great south. The epithet of red city comes from the color of its walls, that keep vast gardens, watered by underground wells built by the Almoravids and Saharan nomads.

A unique experience is walking on the Djema El Fna Square, where a big part of the city’s activities are concentrated: dancers, taletellers, jugglers, craftsmen, traders and snake charmers are seen in the square or from the many terraces of the cafes around it.

Is this trip for me?

This trip is for trekking and mountain lovers. If reaching the top of a mountain and high altitude trekking is a desire of yours, then this trip is for you. In addition, this trip is excellent at combining a climb to a summit of over 4000 meters with the possibility of meeting the mountain people who live in the villages through which the trek passes.

Who will guide this trip?

This trip will be guided by a local English-speaking guide. Keep in mind that English tends to be basic, and that in addition to English, French and Spanish are widespread in Morocco. It may be that your guide will be able to communicate with you in one of these three languages.

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

You will stay in Riads, which is a characteristic type of accommodation in Morocco, in double rooms with bathrooms; in local houses with basic shared bathrooms and in dormitories also with shared bathrooms.

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

We will use private vehicles for transportation to and from the airport, as well as for travel between Marrakesh and the beginning of the trek and back to Marrakesh.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

Yes, they are. You must fly within the program dates and on the flight defined as the "anchor" flight of the group. If by any chance you want to go earlier or stay a few more days in Morocco, or if you are going on a flight with a different schedule than the rest of the group, let us know so that we can advise you to arrive at the hotel on the first day.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

If you request a flight proposal, Papa-Léguas sends you one. After you receive it, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas, another agency or online.

Where do I meet the group?

Most likely you will meet the group the first night in Marrakesh.

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

Not necessarily. If you don't want to stay alone in the hotel and tent, you can share with another participant. 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?

No. We would advise you not to. During the trek take your own filter or fill your canteen with filtered or boiled water prepared by the guides. You can always buy bottled water during the days in Marrakesh.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

Almost all meals are included, so you won't need much for the non-included expenses. However, tipping is a big issue in Morocco and all the staff accompanying you on the trek expect a gratuity. So count on about 100 euros for personal expenses and another 100 euros for gratuities on the mountain.

Is insurance included in the land program? What does it cover?

No, it is not. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. In a winter climb situation, where auxiliary means of progression (crampons) may have to be used, a mountain sports insurance is mandatory. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. Check our policy on the specific insurance page.

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?

This trip has a specific equipment list that will be sent to you when you make your reservation, however, keep in mind that in addition to basic trekking equipment such as boots, trekking pants, and hiking socks, you should have a set of thermal layers to protect you from the cold, especially on the day of the summit.

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?
