Tour Details:

  • Available on request: Bike and equipment hire
  • Average daily distance: 27 miles or 44 km
  • This trip is suitable for: People with a good level of fitness. The distances covered are not huge but due to the altitude and terrain a good level of fitness is required. You should have some off road experience and also be able to cycle for up to 6 hours over the course of the day.
  • Challenging alternatives: For people with a more serious level of fitness and stamina we also run a more challenging trip that covers the route described here in 3 to 4 days. We then continue East for another 2 days travelling through rocky gorges, over another high mountain pass (2500 m) and on to Imilchil. Amongst the wide open spaces of Ergs and barren landscapes we cycle exploring the best of the southern villages and Kasbahs punctuating every now and then the Sahara. Great oases, stunning mud-brick villages and warm faces are elements of unique Morocco.
