Mountain biking in Morocco? Yes, you can. Our NEXT tour starts APRIL 28.
It is just like “Little Nepal”.
And in Morocco you can make a very special tour within one week: join our 8 day tour with 6 days of splendid & real .. mountain biking. The start is in the magical city of Marrakech. From there you go 6 days for real mountain biking. Just south of Marrakech you find the High Atlas mountains. Marrakech is already magical but when you go to the mountains you discover remote Berber villages & valleys and a lot of rough mountain terrain in between. Mountain biking in Morocco is not only adventure because of the biking .. You are really entering a different world ... where all your senses are tingled.
The biking is a combination of easy and paved roads and real trails and tracks. Sometimes only a path for the mules. An experienced European tourleader is biking with you. During the mountain biking everything is completely organized; including a following car for the luggage and nice picnics on the road.
Our next 8 day group tour starts on Saturday April 28 in Marrakech. You spent 2 nights in Marrakech and in between you go cycling in the High Atlas Mountains. The mountain peaks with white snow you can see them already from the city. The highest summits are over 4.000 meters; on bike we stay a little lower with challenging passes of over 2.000 meters. 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. On the road we stay in simple Berber guesthouses; you bring your own sleeping bag. You sometimes sleep in multiple rooms and the bathroom (with shower) are shared. We introduce you to the friendly Berber people with their traditional culture.
The major part of the biking is on dirt road, in Morocco we call them “pistes”. Sometimes the road is not even more than a small trail for the mules. On day 5 there is a small 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. The mountain biking itself is a little technical, some experience is needed.
You bring your own bicycle!! Just ask for the special luggage fares when you book your flight. For more information have a look at:
