Trek across the Sahara Desert in aid of St Clare: November 2025

Thursday 6th November 2025 - Tuesday 11th November 2025
12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Take on desert heats as you trek across the Sahara in aid of St Clare

What you can expect from the Sahara Desert trek

Join Team St Clare in a trek across the Moroccan Sahara (6-11th November 2025), where you’ll soak in views of ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains.

You’ll be in for a challenge as you take on highs of 35°C during the day and lows of 0°C at night. Although taking on the elements does provide you with the chance to spend your nights under a starlit sky all while enjoying freshly-cooked authentic Berber cuisine. 

The experience will not only enable you to support St Clare, but you’ll also help a community project in Marrakech that supports vulnerable young people with educational and vocational training after they have been orphaned, abused or rejected by their family. 

Immerse yourself in the rich culture of Morocco and take on an adventure of a lifetime in aid of St Clare Hospice.

*Along with travelling, you’ll spend two full days and two half days trekking. With two days spent assisting at the community project.

Emma, and her friend Hollie, joined Team St Clare back in April 2024 when they took on the Sahara Desert trek in memory of Emma’s dad Gary.

She shared: “Dad faced many challenges but cancer was his biggest, but it didn’t stop him fighting each day and making memories. His determination will live on through me and it was a privilege to have been able to take on the incredible 30-mile trek across the Sahara in Dad’s memory and to raise money for St Clare Hospice.”
