One of the main ways that RifCom generates funds for its charitable projects is through our sponsored Charity Challenge Adventures. We offer a range of exciting and rewarding experiences in Morocco, as well as in amazing locations further afield with our occasional “Bucket-List Challenges”!

Upcoming Challenges:

For 2024, we have 4 fantastic RifCom challenges:

March
1 to 4

RIFCOM BITE-SIZE TREK

An eye-opening and breath-taking long-weekend event in the Rif Mountains of Morocco, hiking up the iconic pillar of Hercules, Jebel Moussa, then along Rif Mountain trails and finishing with some leisure time in the blue pearl of Chefchaouen. Great hiking, stunning scenery, charming people & delicious food with a comfy hotel stay at the end!

May
25 to 31

CAMINO SANTIAGO – PORTUGAL WAY

The ever-popular Camino de Santiago – but on the less-travelled west coast. We’ll start in the coastal town of Vigo, Spain, and take 6 days to walk the last 100km to the city of Santiago, passing incredible views of the Atlantic, typical scenarios of beautiful rural Galicia and sample it’s famous seafood!

June
29 to 6 July

SWISS & ITALIAN ALPS

The “Via Spluga”, also called “the most beautiful way over the Alps”, is perhaps one of the best thru-hikes in the world! Weaving through magnificent mountain scenery, around every corner there’s a stunning chocolate-box scene, thundering waterfall or swinging rope-bridge! Hotels, restaurants and even a spa make this a bit more luxurious!

November
2 to 6

RIFCOM CHALLENGE Our Main Event!

This four-day trekking challenge ascends Morocco´s Atlas Mountains and finishes at the gateway to the Sahara Desert! This world-class adventure includes an epic train journey, spectacular landscapes, tent nights under stars and the opportunity to aid the Berber communities hit hard by last year´s earthquake.

BESPOKE CHALLENGES

In addition to these main challenges, we can arrange ad-hoc events, such as weekend trips for groups of family, friends or work colleagues who want to visit the Rif Mountains, take part in charity project work, experience the local culture and cuisine, as well as going on a hike or yoga retreat, or joining one of our mountain football tournaments! All in support of RifCom and Rif Communities.

Family Discoveries

We can plan trips in to the Rif for family groups which are fun, educational, but also safe, easy and comfortable. Ideal group sizes are between 10 and 20 and our trips can be tailored to suit people of all ages and budgets. Please get in touch so we can discuss your request further.

Weekend Warriors

Would you like to visit the Rif, and actually do something to help the communities there? We can plan trips where groups can get involved with on-going projects on a hands-on basis, such as painting, simple building & repairs, student garden creation, etc. As our charity projects develop this year, we’ll identify where our Supporters can help in this way and release details via our normal social media channels, so keep any eye out!

Team Building

In a world where we often work remotely, plugged in to machines and away from human connection, a trip in to a remote mountain or desert region can be incredibly beneficial for building human connections with each other and/or as a reward experience! The travel experience alone is beneficial, let alone working together with wellness experts in the mountains or simply sitting around a camp fire and telling stories.

Groups Adventures and Higher End Experiences

Are you looking for a long weekend in and around Marrakech which combines fun, adventure with comfort, culture, good food and even a bit of luxury – all with an added donation to RifCom! With our knowledge of Morocco, we can arrange trips tailored to a special group of friends or work colleagues who want a Moroccan experience with a social benefit too! Please get on board and be part of a movement that enhances the lives of so many in North Africa, while enhancing our own lives too through contribution and adventure experiences!

Thank You! Shukran!
