Mountainbike in Morocco High Atlas Mountains

If you like to go for a real bike in the mountains ... Starting on Sunday November 6th in Marrakech for a 8 day complete tour with 2 nights in Marrakech. In between you cycle through the High Atlas Mountains in 6 days. The mountain peaks with white snow you see them already from the magic city of Marrakech. The highest summits are over 4.000 meters; on bike we stay a little lower with challenging passes of over 2.000 meters. The trip takes you to beautiful nature and colorful mountain valleys with small Berber villages stick to the mountain slopes. Around those villages green walnut trees and small terraces with barley. And a lot of rough terrain in between. And as our tour leader Jos described the first time he arrived in the Berber village of Imsker: It is just like “Little Nepal”
 
Every day there is a firm climb and off course you go down as well. For the real enthusiasts there is a spectacular extra ‘zig zag’ climb on day 4. And we introduce you to the friendly Berbers with their traditional culture. On the road we stay in simple Berber guesthouses; you bring your own sleeping bag, matresses are provided, bathrooms (with shower) are often communal and sometimes you sleep in multiple rooms. The major part of the biking tour is on dirt road, in Morocco we call them  “pistes”. Sometimes the road is not even more than a small path for the mules. And on day 5 you walk to the pass Tizi Mezzik (2.280m.), your bike is then transported on … the back of a mule !
 
This is real adventure and a good combination of sports and culture.
