A superb road cycling holiday in Morocco. With its roots in Africa, but charged with eastern exoticism, Morocco represents the closest truly different destination to Britain. Morocco is a vast wilderness of towering mountains and desolate desert where rural life has hardly changed in hundreds of years.
With an ever expanding network of quiet tarmac roads throughout the Atlas Mountains there has never been a better time for road cyclists to visit. Starting and finishing in the capital of the Moroccan south, Marrakech, this 10 day tour takes us across the High Atlas Mountains in the shadow of snow-capped peaks, before crossing the Souss Valley and climbing into the Anti-Atlas.
After a night in the resort town of Agadir we finish on quiet country lanes around the mountain village of Immouzer, before transferring by minibus back to Marrakech for a final night in “The Red City”. Covering an average of 70-90km per day, our Road Atlas tour takes a challenging route over a mountainous landscape and offers riders challenging climbs and exciting descents on traffic-free roads.
Many of the routes have been recently re-surfaced so riding conditions are good, and in winter we normally experience crisp clear days with excellent visibility. En route we use a variety of styles of accommodation, from tourist class hotels to charming guesthouses and basic rural g̨tes, with plenty of opportunities to sample Morocco’s world famous cuisine.
On tour almost all meals are included and lunches are usually taken picnic-style in beautiful and remote locations.
