DAY 1: Arrival in Marrakech
Your adventure begins with our Welcome Briefing in the hotel at 4 pm where you can meet the group.
DAY 2: Marrakech - Essaouira
We leave Marrakech and ride through the surrounding fields out into the desert. It stretches endlessly in all directions; you feel tiny and downright lost. Our destination is the coastal city of Essauouira, whose medina is the only one in Morocco with a chessboard pattern.
DAY 3: Essaouira - Agadir
Today we go to Agadir, a big and quite modern city. The road leads through dry, eroded landscape and rises up to almost 450 m. The most beautiful part is the last section, where we mostly follow the cliffs and beaches. If you have your swimming trunks with you, you are clearly on the winning side…
DAY 4: Agadir - Ida Ougnidif
Southeast of Agadir there is a quite densely populated plain that we have to cross, but it is worth it, because the mountains of the Anti-Atlas are tempting. Right after the reservoir at Aït Baha, the road climbs up and then even cracks the 1000-metre mark. Today's highlight is the ancient mountain village Tizourgane.
DAY 5: Ida Ougnidif - Foum Zguid
The Antiatlas offers impressive landscapes and we will enjoy them today. The most beautiful sections of the road, which leads up to over 1,800 m, we will of course negotiate by bike. Halfway up is the oasis town of Tata, which surprises us in spring with its lush green vegetable and grain fields.
DAY 6: Foum Zguid - Mhamid
Today we ride into the Sahara, very close to the Algerian border, where large sand dunes await us. A walk or camel ride between the dunes, a spectacular sunset, the unique starry sky above the desert - it is like a dream!
DAY 7: Mhamid - Zagora
Zagora is a quite large but very pleasant oasis town, especially in spring when it is not too hot yet and the fields are green. On the way there we also pass through Tamegroute, an important religious centre where you can buy beautiful, typical green ceramics. How convenient that our support van is never far away…
DAY 8: Zagora - Agdz
Morocco as from the picture book is on the agenda today, we follow the river Draa, which often carries a surprising amount of water in spring. It supplies the countless date palm groves, which often fill the entire width of the valley. Along the way there are several kasbahs, often beautifully restored and transformed into charming hotels. The old Berber village of Tamnougalt is still really original and definitely worth seeing.
DAY 9: Agdz - Quarzazate
A real adventure is the ride over the Tizi-n-Tinififft, a 1,660 m high mountain pass that leads through a landscape rutted by wild gorges. Here the wind blows constantly and even in summer it can get unpleasantly cold. Don't forget your jacket! The destination is Ouarzazate, a large city that does not offer too many sights but is very popular as a film location.
DAY 10: Quarzazate - Aït-Ben-Haddou
Aït-Ben-Haddou is certainly the most famous fortified city ("Ksar") in Morocco. Its location, appearance and atmosphere are so perfect that one might think it was just a movie set, but the village is real. However, most of the inhabitants have moved to the new town in the recent past. In order to enjoy the village and the journey here, we have kept this riding day quite short.
DAY 11: Aït-Ben-Haddou - Marrakech
The highlight of every trip to Morocco is the Tizi'n Tichka Pass, at 2,260 m the highest in the country. The scenery along the way is breathtaking and spectacular and will remain in your memory for a long time, until the moment we roll into Marrakech and certainly much longer!
DAY 12: Departure from Marrakech
Let’s enjoy our final breakfast together and then set off on our journey homeward.
