This motorcycle journey is all about a unique discovery of the Atlas and all its beauty. We will ride on small winding roads, we will tackle dirt tracks and we will climb to nearly 3,000 meters to see the mountain range from up above. This adventure is for those who have experience in off-road riding on big trail bikes and who want to discover the untouched parts of Morocco in a unique way but with the security of full assistance and guiding.
The untouched beauty of the Atlas as only few have seen, riding through the cedar forests, exploring the mines around Midelt, riding on mountain passes above 2,900 metres, riding around the beautiful lake at Bin el Ouidane.
Arrival to Casablanca. Transfer to your hotel, where you will be able to settle in and relax by the pool to prepare for your trip the next morning. You will meet your tour guide and go through a welcome briefing as well as the formalities required before the start and you will receive your welcome pack.
You will be transferred to our workshop and receive your BMW bikes early in the morning before starting our journey to Azrou. We will head towards Rabat on normal roads to warm up so you can get used to your bike as well as local driving habits before turning East to tackle the winding mountain roads that will provide an excellent insight to the great riding Morocco has to offer. Our stop for the night will be in a nice hotel on the border of the cedar forest where you can relax by the pool or discuss the first day at the bar.
Before heading up to the plateau of the Atlas and the town of Midelt we start our day with a mild off-road through the cedar forests to discover the beauty of the area and spot the barbary apes living there. We then take the beautiful road to climb up the mountain range to arrive in Midelt around lunchtime. Following our lunch break we will hop on the bikes to tackle some off-road sections and visit the mineral mines in the region.
We start our day on the nice winding roads of the Atlas through long straights and sweepers until the town of Er-Rich where we take a turn towards the higher peaks of the mountain range. We will ride on smaller roads and dirt tracks until we descend to the valley of Todra and the town of Tinghir where we will spend the night.
As we will leave Tinghir and head towards Boumalne Dades on the main national road before the real fun begins. We will ride on the wonderful winding roads of the Dades valley where there will be plenty of opportunities for photo stops. This motorcycle ride will take us through the most photographed switchbacks of Morocco. From there we will continue our journey through battered road sections that will turn into gravel roads. We will climb to nearly 3,000 meters through breath-taking scenery. We spend the evening at the small settlement of Agoudal and will dine on delicious local dishes.
The great motorcycle adventure continues as we ride through the small winding roads of the Atlas towards the blue waters of the lake Bin el Ouidane. We will tackle switchbacks and turns as we ride mostly above 2,000 metres before arriving to our daily accommodation. We will have the opportunity to relax by the lake or take a short ride around the lake.
Our last riding day will start with a short but exhilarating ride on the mountain passes before we descend to the vast planes that lay between the Atlas and the Ocean. Our ride will take us through smaller country roads before arriving back to our HQ to return the bikes. You will then be taken back to your hotel where you can spend the rest of the evening rewinding the best moments of the trip or you can decide to take the time to explore the city. This will be the last opportunity to invite your guide for a drink at the bar.
Depending on your flight time, you might take the opportunity to relax or visit the city before the arranged pick-up takes you to the airport.
