6 Day Mini Mountain and Desert Guided Motorcycle Tour in Morocco

Ouarzazate, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

Spectacular Motorcycle Tour Morocco

This tour is ideal for the lesser experienced motorbikers as not so demanding. Embark on a superb riding experience, nearly 90% off-road. The spectacular tracks combine with dramatic mountain landscapes and awesome desert views. Beautiful winding trails, gorges, rocky climbs, and some big wash-outs await you! Climb to 2500 meters high mountain passes which open up to sweeping panoramas, and discover isolated mountain villages. Traverse river crossings, sandy rivers, and vast dry desert lake beds, and on the night in the bivouac, enjoy a soulful moment and a beer on the top of the dunes as the sun goes down. Later a campfire with local musicians, good food, and refreshing drinks.

Accommodation

During this motorcycle tour, you will stay at twin-share rooms in excellent accommodations and a desert bivouac. Moto Aventures uses a selection of three and four-star hotels, most styled on the old kasbahs or fortified houses. On at least one night, the accommodation will be in an original kasbah that has been totally renovated and conditioned to be a hotel.

Most of the hotels have swimming pools but they are normally cold! A highlight of the off-road adventure is the night in the desert bivouac, 90 kilometers from the tarmac. After a good meal, you will sit around the campfire and listen to some local musicians.

You will stay in Ouarzazate on nights one and five.

Relax in N'Kob on night two.

Unwind in Ouzina on night three.

Have a well-earned rest in Dades on night four.

Program

Day 1: Arrival day in Ouarzazate

You will arrive at Ouarzazate Airport (OZZ) and have a short transfer to a three-star hotel in town.

Day 2: Ouarzazate to N'Kob (approximately 230 kilometers / 143 miles)

A very pleasant day’s biking will give you time to get accustomed to your bike and the terrain. After breakfast and about six kilometers on the road, you will take off into the countryside, heading west on a sweeping trail prepared for asphalt but not yet covered with the black stuff. The ride will then head off to the road proper.

The road is predominantly hard packed soil interspersed with some short rocky sections, river crossings, and small villages. There are some long sections of undulating trail, twisting through the hills with not a rock in sight. After 100 kilometers, you will turn south-eastwards after a picnic lunch which is taken somewhere on the trail.

You will wind your way down through the Anti-Atlas Mountains, to the town of Agdz. A quick refueling and coffee stop, then the trip will take you to 30 kilometers off-road again through palmeraie hugging the River Draa before you hit the asphalt. There, you will head due east for 22 kilometers on the road. You will take a stop at the night’s accommodation in the village of N’Kob. In the evening, you will be staying in a 200-year-old converted kasbah.

Day 3: N'Kob to Ouzina desert bivouac (approximately 250 kilometers / 155 miles)

After breakfast, you will head south from the hotel toward your destination for the night, the desert jaima. Super-fast twisting tracks and riverbeds will eventually lead you onto the enormous dry lakebed of Lake Maider and to a small auberge where you will stop for a drink.

From there, you will bike through fesh-fesh, or bulldust, and wind your way through sandy and dry riverbeds to where you refill in Remlia. You will travel a final 20 kilometers through dunes to the night’s stop at the desert bivouac with hot showers. It is situated close to a large area of middle-sized dunes.

In the late afternoon or early evening, once the sand has cooled down, you will all grab a beer and bike to the top of the dunes to watch the sunset. Dinner will be in the jaima. Then, you will all sit around a campfire with local musicians playing for you.

Day 4: Ouzina desert bivouac to Dades (approximately 170 kilometers / 106 miles)

You will leave the bivouac after breakfast, traversing back through the dunes to Remlia where you will refuel. Turning north, you will pass through another section of fesh-fesh, stop for a drink at a local desert auberge in a gorge, and then continue on to very fast tracks, across a never-ending dry lake bed and along winding sandy trails and riverbeds.

You will refuel from the four-by-four somewhere out there and then head on to the village of Al Nif where you will have lunch in a local cafe and refuel again. By then, you will have left the desert. Continuing on the northerly route, you will cross the Jbel Saghro Mountains on twisting trails with dramatic rock formations and amazing scenery.

You will drive through long drop-offs down into the rocky valleys until you come out onto the plateau. That will lead you to the next night’s accommodation in a four-star hotel with a very unique design, a cold pool with a hot Jacuzzi on the roof, and an excellent buffet meal. On arrival, you can arrange to have a massage, sauna, or hammam to remove any aches caused by the day’s long ride.

Day 5: Dades to Ouarzazate (approximately 190 kilometers / 118 miles)

After breakfast, you will refuel and head up the Dades Gorge, off in an easterly direction following the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. You will ride through undulating and fast sections interspersed with rocky trails through major washouts and gullies. You will then be brought out onto a plateau. Picnic lunch will be served somewhere up on the plateau.

You will experience several river crossings followed by trails winding their way down into beautiful river gorges before the final 20 kilometers of fast tracks across a flat plateau, bringing you back to Ouarzazate. You will drop the bikes at the garage and the mechanic, Hussein, will check them over together for damages. Thereafter, you will hit the bar, have a well-deserved drink, and remember all the adventures you have had.

Day 6: Departure day

You will be transferred back to Ouarzazate Airport (OZZ) on day six.
