Morocco rock climbing vacation in Todra gorge

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

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.

Community

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 travelers 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.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The climbing and the company

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Bear in mind the lengthy (10hrs) transfer from Marrakech to Todra. A fabulous route across the High Atlas but longer than we were anticipating. This means
that if you choose to fly home on day 6 you will have very limited time in Marrakech. It's relatively cheap to stay in Marrakech so an extra day or so might be useful.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Somewhat

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Really good! The climbing was dramatic and exciting. The company was interesting and fun. The hosts in Todra were enthusiastic, friendly and very
accommodating. They also offered restorative yoga which was perfect after a day of climbing.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Climbing on the 3rd day of the trip. The view and atmosphere from the cliff was amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Work hard on your physical fitness before you go. I am still tired, two days after returning.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The tourism money spent surely helped the local economy. We ate little meat, when we did it was usually chicken. This is a sustainable practice.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I enjoyed it, I preferred Todra to Marrakech. Todra was cheaper, more relaxed, and had stunning scenery.
