…..it doesn't take sight, but vision, and a spirit of adventure to explore the world…

Dr Brian Miller, visually impaired traveller

Visually impaired and sighted travellers examine a column in Morocco

We’re partnering with TV’s Amar Latif - (of ‘How to get fit fast’ and ‘Travelling Blind’ fame) and his company Traveleyes - to offer a unique challenge, where sighted and visually impaired adventurers travel together discovering the authentic rural culture of Morocco.

This year, SeeAbility turns 220 – and to celebrate we’re inviting you to join us on an extraordinary 5 day trek to the top of Mount Toubkal.   

This tough but incredibly rewarding challenge is designed for beginners, but you must be comfortable hiking all day through moderately difficult terrain. Our route will involve steep climbs in high altitude (up to 4167 metres above sea level), mostly on upper foothill mule tracks that are seldom flat.

We’ll conclude our challenge in Marrakech where you can refine your bartering skills in the maze of souqs or perhaps you’ll head to a traditional hammam for some well-deserved rest and recuperation.

There is now a waiting list for sighted participants, but we do still have places available for visually impaired adventurers.

Didn't get a place? You can still join the adventure!

Our visually impaired trekkers are climbing mountains to help people with learning disabilities & sight loss live life to the full.

But if you want to make a difference you don’t have to climb mountains! Show your support by inviting your friends to explore their senses at a special themed evening! Download our sensory pack and be a part of #TeamMorocco!

Costs

We ask participants to pay a £200 registration fee to book onto this trek.

There are then 3 payment options to join this incredible adventure...

Self Funded - Pay for the entire trip cost yourself, so there is no need to fundraise.

Sponsorship Funded - Fundraise for the cost of the trip and send all the money you receive to SeeAbility.

Mixed Funded - This option is a combination of the first two options. Fundraise as much as you can, and top this up with your own money to cover the cost of the trip.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll be supporting SeeAbility’s life changing work, and we'll support you every step of the way!
