Due to the Covid-19 virus, this trip has been moved to 16th - 23rd October 2021, so why not sign up to help us raise vital funds for the hospice. 

An amazing opportunity to take part in a fabulous eight-day challenge across Morocco which will take on a five-day exhilarating trek along dried-out riverbeds of the Sahara, from oasis to oasis.

Event Details


Trek deep into the Sahara over giant sand dunes and past towering mountains. Our route will snake its way through the desert’s emptiness, and along ancient irrigation channels that are still in use today.

You’ll get the chance to camp out under the star-lit African sky, enjoy Moroccan feasts and might even catch the sight of a shooting star! And, to finish off this one-off trip, we will spend our last day and night in the colourful city of Marrakech.

Did you know?

  • The Sahara is the largest ‘hot’ desert in the world
  • During the day the temp can reach 50C and at night fall below 0C
  • Some sand dunes tower over 400 feet high!
  • The Sahara is 30% sand and 70% gravel – this fact really surprised me!
  • It has snowed on 3 occasion in the Sahara – 1979, 2016 and most recently in January 2018 – that would be some sight to see if that occurred on your trek!
