Description

This mountain bike holiday in Morocco is a classic north-south Atlas crossing, suitable for those with mountain biking experience and a good level of fitness. One notch up one the scale from our Atlas to Desert trip, this thrilling mountain bike adventure is perfect for those looking for a challenging off road trip in Morocco.

The Central High Atlas is one of the most unspoilt and beautiful mountain regions anywhere. It's also a fantastic venue for a biking holiday, with mile upon mile of uninterrupted jeep tracks and trails. On this biking adventure we take on some challenging climbs and superb descents en route from the verdant valley of Ait Bougmez to the striking Dades Gorge in the Moroccan south.

The variety of landscape here is staggering - from stark mountains, fertile valleys and rocky gorges, to rivers, pine forests and isolated windswept plateaux. There's also the challenge of a 100km 'century ride' on the last day, as well as the sights of Marrakech and the Ouzoud Falls to be experienced and explored.

Nights are spent in basic 'gite' accommodation, with a night camping in the wilderness and a night spent in a local family house. In the evening we have the chance to sample Morocco's cuisine, whilst lunches are normally taken picnic style, usually in beautifully remote places.
