About the challenge 

Spend four days trekking through this ever-changing landscape, making your way up the vast Chigaga Dunes, where you will witness the desert sunrise. The days will be hot, and the trekking will be tough, but the rewards will be great. Conquering this desert with the stunning volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as a backdrop will be a phenomenon you’ll never forget!

Traditional Berbers guides will ensure you experience the cultural delights Morocco has to offer while being mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings. If you want to be part of one of our fantastic overseas events but have limited time to take away from the UK, this unique adventure is for you.
