Description of Rock climbing holiday in Morocco

The beautiful Todra Gorge is the dramatic base for this nine day rock climbing holiday in Morocco,. The gorge has 300m high orange limestone walls, with more than 150 bolted routes, the perfect place for climbers of all abilities. The five day rock climbing course is lead by an expert climber who has set many of the routes in the gorges. Confident climbers will be guided on where to climb depending on their interests while novices keen to learn rock climbing will be taken under the wing of our climbing instructors.

As well as climbing, you’ll have the chance to meet local nomads and tuck into tasty family-style meals cooked with local ingredients. You’ll travel across the Atlas Mountains via its highest mountain pass, the Tizi N’Tichka, one of North Africa’s most spectacular routes and the gateway to the Sahara desert. We’ll also visit the beautiful city of Ait Ben Haddou, which features in numerous films, and you’ll have time to explore the busy streets and famous Jemaa el Fna market in Marrakech.

Rock climbing holiday in Morocco

Carbon reduction

Our rock climbing tours, and especially this one in Todra, are very focused on approaching rock climbing not as a sport activity but as a way of discovering the landscape. In this case, being a massive gorge, rock climbing is possibly the only way to explore properly the area. Being aware of the impact that rock climbing and the climbing community can have in the environment, we try to reduce this as much as possible, mostly when it comes to waste and the gathering of big groups of people that, at times, disturbs the normal pace and usage of the area (being a narrow gorge).

For this reason, our groups are very small and we split in even smaller groups when climbing, there's a special attention on collecting not only our waste but everything we see in the area and also to maintain and preserve the rock climbing elements in Todra, as they are one of the main sources of economy in the area. Discovering all what exists in the environment, apart from the rocks we climb, is also a priority in this tour. As we explain in our rock climbing tours, it's not only climbing but being aware of where you are and the reality of the communities and people living around the rocks.


The main commitment on this tour is with the family we work with, the Fadili family. Our host family is not only providing us with accommodation and amazing breakfasts and dinners, but they also participate on the rock climbing teaching and guiding, being all of them local climbers. Together with the Fadilii family we work with Julio Soares, a professional climber who has dedicated his life to the community of Todra. He lives in Todra and contributes daily on the installation of new climbing routes and the documentation and maintenance of the existing ones.

His contribution with the community is remarkable and he plays a fundamental role in our tours. Apart from the climbing in the area, he is committed to training locals in rock climbing. Being this a highly risk activity counting with Julio in our tours is a privilege, guaranteeing not only the security of our travellers but also the commitment with the integration of the local communities in this activity, which they can use as a source of income and development.
