It's always exciting travelling to new destinations, climbing fresh rock and visiting different cultures. Morocco gives you all this and more. It is a place largely missed by the British and only recently receiving a little more interest. For those of you with a thirst for adventure, this destination is an absolute must.

 

Why you will love a climbing holiday to Morocco

 

With its colourful soukhs, food stalls which light up at night, magic men and henna tattoo artists, the 'Cinnamon City' of Marrakech is always lively and colourful, and a terrific place to start and end our climbing holiday. But the Todra Gorge is ultimately where we're heading, offering a multitude of quality single and multi pitch sports climbs for all grades.

 

You arrive to a beautiful green oasis and tall palm trees standing at the mouth of this stunning mountain cleft of 300 metre limestone walls. Lots of new routes have been put up over the last couple of years, many of them multi pitch routes running the full height of the gorge and within easy walking distance of our accommodation.

Accommodation

 

The accommodation here is set in charming Moroccan hotels on a bed and breakfast basis. You will spend one night in Marrakech before your transfer to the mountains the following morning, and return here for the last night. Set in the heart of the city there will be enough time to soak up the culture and barter for a few gifts in the soukhs before the flight home. After arriving in the Todra Gorge after your first night in the city, we make our way to our personal favourite of just two hotels in the area. Nestled in the narrowest part of the gorge, our hotel is full of Moroccan charm and character, which is why we keep going back
