Guided Motorcycle Tour Morocco

Do you want to cross the Strait of Gibraltar and feel the desert with your motorcycle? Imagine breathing fresh mountain air while your motorcycle heads towards the end of a mountain pass. Imagine the feeling of getting to the summit. Also imagine your tires going downhill, down the opposite side of the mountain, and the landscape slowly turning into palm groves, oases, and dunes. Raise your eyes towards the horizon and you'll find a huge mass of fine sand that mutates its form constantly at the mercy of the wind.

Program

Day 1 - Reception in Malaga

Once your plane has landed, Beebiker guide service you will pick up at the airport. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to explore the surrounding area and see the sights around the city. There will be a welcome orientation that will allow you to meet the rest of the people who will take part in this adventure, as well as be reviewing the tour details. At the end of the day, there will be dinner.

Day 2 - Malaga - Algeciras - Rabat

The first day on the road is ahead of you. After resting and breakfast, the next step is to break the ice with your future travel companions. One of the motorcycles from your fleet will be waiting for you, ready to roll. This first stage will be a fun one, you’ll get to know and adapt to the environment, and will take you through the mountains, to Tarifa.

There, you’ll take the ferry bound for Tangier. The African coast will appear before your eyes, ever nearer. This, no doubt will be one of the memorable moments of the trip. This is an experience that will take you to another country, another continent, another life. Once on Moroccan soil, there will be an exclusive riding stage to get to Rabat and rest.

Day 3 - Rabat - Marrakech

The sun rises on your first morning in Africa. You will have breakfast, take your BMWs and leave behind the coast on your way to the mountains. The Atlas will appear before you for the first time. At the end of the tour, you will be an expert connoisseur of the Moroccan side of this mountain range. The end of the journey will be the arrival in Marrakech, which, after these two intense stages, will welcome you for a day of rest.

Day 4 - Marrakech - Rest day

After the journey to Marrakech, you will have the opportunity to get up as late as you want. This first stop was carefully selected so you can enjoy the spirit of the Pearl of the South. If you think that the traffic of a large western city is pure craziness, wait till you see the streets here. Among the most important leisure activities, will be a visit to the souks. In these Arab markets, reminders of an ancient culture, it is tradition to haggle over the price of what is being sold.

Day 5 - Mountain stage: Marrakech - Ouarzazate

Another reason for making Marrakech a strategic stop is its geographical location. After a day of perfect rest, you leave behind the city and before your motorcycle, the Atlas starts slowly showing up, the most prominent mountain range in Northwest Africa. During this stage, you will gain altitude riding up winding mountain roads, and then, once on the way down towards the southern side, we’ll begin exploring an area of aquifers that will be the first step towards the end of the stage.

Day 6 - Ouarzazate - Boumalne Dades

The last bend in the road before reaching the desert will take place in the Dadès Gorge. Riding on the mountainside you get to a territory, that due to the passage of time and erosion, has become a natural monument worthy of admiration. These canyons make for some of the greatest photos in the trip.

Day 7 - The gates of the Sahara: Boumalne Dades - Merzouga

You finally reach the moment you have all been waiting for. You will leave behind the mountainous surroundings and head towards Merzouga. It will be, undoubtedly, the most exciting stretch of your journey. During this stage, which will mostly take place in an area close to the border with Algeria, the desert will open up before you.

Day 8 - Rest under the desert stars: Merzouga - Rest day

A day of "rest" starts in Merzouga. The fun has just begun. After a good night’s rest and having fueled up with a good breakfast, you will switch from asphalt to sand and switch your BMW two-wheeler to a four-wheeler ATV. This change of vehicle will make you feel like a Dakar rider. Additionally, to make the experience complete, this extra route will lead you into the dunes. Once in the middle of the desert, you will have the opportunity to spend the night in a jaima, a type of tent used by the Berber people. The starlight will be the blanket covering the desert night sky.

Day 9 - Oasis: Merzouga - Errachidia

After a wonderful nomad style night, it’s time to go back to civilization. You will make your way back to the bikes, on the ATVs. Once in the city, we’ll take the road to Er Rachidia. One of the main points of interest chosen by your guides on this road is a Palm Grove. At this point, you’ll be able to enjoy a bit more of the excellent panoramic view that such striking vegetation on the shores of the desert offers.

Day 10 - Crossing Atlas Mountains: Errachidia - Fez

On your way back to the northern part of the country you will have to overcome the geographical obstacles posed by the Atlas. Curve lovers will have the perfect opportunity to prove themselves. This stage will lead you to the city of Fez. The next day will be a rest day.

Day 11 - Fez - Rest day

Well-deserved day off in Fez. On this stop, you’ll see Morocco’s more cosmopolitan side. The puddles of dye, where leather is tanned, are the most striking part of the city. We’ll also be able to go on a cultural tour of the historical monuments, have a good meal and refuel to be in top form for the final stretch.

Day 12 - Return to Spain: Fez - Melilla

Having traveled North Africa, crossed the Atlas mountains twice, and crossed the desert sands before you is your last day in the land of the Berbers. You return to the Mediterranean. You will cover the distance between Fez and the border with the city of Melilla, an autonomous city which is part of Spain. We’ll make the Rift Valley your own personal track. Tomorrow you will return to the peninsula.

Day 13 - The last ride: Melilla - Malaga

We’ll board the ferry to Malaga in the morning. Once there, your specialists will guide you on your way through this mountainous area. We'll make sure that you enjoy every last kilometer of this adventure. We’ll push your BMWs until the very last stop. We’ll thank you, afterward, for being so friendly, and we’ll say your goodbyes.

Day 14 - Flight home

Time to say goodbye to the rest of the group after this great adventure. It is the time pack your suitcases, take your memories and say goodbye. See you next time!
