walking socks - Morocco winter gear test

Our very own Marina, from the office, set-off for a little Winter adventure to the unspoiled Moroccan wilderness.

The trip to the beautiful peak of Mgoun which dominates a Narnia landscape home to hidden villages, dramatic mountains, Berber culture, and the charming Bougmez Valley. This was a truly breath-taking region for a unique winter mountaineering holiday in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.

From bustling Marrakech Marina headed to the Bougmez Happy Valley where she experienced the charming culture and warm hospitality of the Berbers whilst surrounded by an incredible landscape of snowy peaks. After the beauty of the Bougmez Marina started her winter adventure by heading over the Tizi n’ Oughri Pass and into a snow-filled amphitheatre where visitors are a rarity. Once here, the remote Tarkeddit Refuge became the base for winter skills training before the ascent of Mgoun (4068m).

After a challenging summit climb, Marina viewed one of the most incredible panoramas in Morocco and North Africa. From the mountains, she visited the spectacular Ouzoud Waterfalls before finishing for a well-earned rest in magical and Marrakech.
