- Spending New Year in the mountain refuge was a real highlight for me. Away from the bustle and commercialised New Year festivities at home, instead we were gazing at the stars and singing rousing songs - completely sober!
Our guide, Mohamed, was excellent. He set a steady, consistent pace up the mountains and was supportive of all members of the group; we all had moments where we needed some reassurance.
To someone booking this trip in future, I would advise bringing lots of toilet roll as the refuge does not provide any. Also, expect to buy all your water (I don't think I was expecting this, but it may have been in the tour notes).
I would highly recommend this tour. It's my first with Explore and I feel certain I will be going back again soon, to Morocco or further afield.
