Atlas Mountain Biking Morocco - 8 Days

Annapurna base camp Trek

This mountain bike cycle tour, using mainly jeep tracks and some fantastic single track, starts in the ancient walled city of Marrakech. A meeting place for traders over the centuries, it's bustling with water sellers, snake charmers and market stalls packed with bargains.

 

We cycle through remote Berber villages clinging to the steep sides of the High Atlas Mountains, explore the Berber villages and experience some of the fantastic long mountain biking descents offered by the region. A real experience of an ancient and fascinating country and culture.

Day 02: Marrakech - Imlil - Tachedirt

This is the start of the riding on the first day, We head direction of Tachdirt for stay night  in im orlad  and start with a 1hr climb to the top of the pass. This trail is a good introduction of what's to come: A fast but technical mule trail with a few tricky bits thrown in for good measure. This singletrack stretch is over three hours long! Accommodation for the night is a Guest house,  a basic building comprising cooking area, shower, toilet (french style!), eating area and roomsfor sleeping.( 20 km day’s journey )


Day 03:  Tachedirt - Imenan Valley - Imsker - Tiziane
A hearty breakfast and stock of energy bars will see us through the next piece of mind blowing singletrack! From Imi orlad  we head through the Tiziatin Forest and Gorge. The scenery is amazing if you can take your eyes off the trail! After lunch head of towards Tizi n'Test (2092m). A steady climb on singletrack and dirt track for about an hour then another night in a Gite with dinner cooked, as always, by Our Berber chef. (32 km day’s journey)

Day 04: Tiziane - Ouirgane - Amizmiz
Another hearty breakfast and stock of energy bars mixed with singletrack and piste takes us towards Imlil. Again, the scenery, views and villages you pass through on this stretch are breathtaking. After lunch we leave Ouirgane one more single-track  which will take us to Amizmiz where we stay in a comfortable hotel for the night. 32 km day’s journey
 
Day 05: Amizmiz - Wadakar Villages
From here we head up the Oued Amizmiz Valley to Azeghour, steady piste riding and stunning scenery. At Azeghour we head towards Toulkine on the other side of the river on singletrack all the way to Adghous. From here the trail becomes more technical (loose and rocky) until we reach Tiqlit and pick up a short dirt track to Wadakar. The majority of this day is on more technical singletrack so even though it's only about 30km,

Day 06: Wadakar Villages - Asni - Imlil
By now you'll be pretty tired! So after breakfast we head back towards Imlil one  more twisting singletrack. Less technical and faster than yesterday, this is real grin factor stuff! Total ride time today is about three hours but still worth every minute. If we have time and the legs for it there is an option for another big singletrack descent into Imlil, but the climb to the top pass at 2200m will test your legs. 35 km day’s journey

Day 07: Imlil - Marrakech
Pack up the bikes after breakfast, load the 4x4 and off to the hotel in Marrakech for the day and night. Explore the city and if your up for it, a Hammam to help refresh aching limbs!

Day 08:  Marrakech - Airport
After breakfast at your Hotel, Transfer to the Airport.
