Wheels of Morocco Motorcycle Tour Itinerary

This 10-day journey indulges the rider both on and off the bike, at every stop. From the idyllic lagoon waters of Oualidia, you’ll make your way down the Atlantic coast to the resort town of Essaouira, spotting flamingos and sampling oysters along the way. After a rejuvenating stop at a yoga retreat and spa, you head inland over the mighty Tizi n’Test pass and through the winding roads of the High-Atlas National Park.

After the switchbacks and cliff views, you descend into the imperial city of Marrakech where you can explore the ancient medina, snake charmers, and food stalls. When you’re done exploring, you can reflect on your journey by the hotel pool or in the spa.

On this tour, you will:

  • Explore the beautiful Atlantic coastline
  • See the Argan tree-climbing goats
  • Ride the Tizi n’Test pass
  • Explore Essaouira and Marrakech

Day 1: Arrival

Arrive in Casablanca. You will be transferred to your hotel where you will be able to settle in and relax by the pool to prepare for your trip the next morning. You will meet your tour guide and go through a welcome briefing as well as the formalities required before the start and you will receive your welcome pack.

Day 2: Casablanca - Oualidia (approximately 170 kilometers / 105.5 miles)

Your first stop will be in the town of El Jadida where you will have the opportunity for a walk within the old Portuguese city walls. Then, you will be continuing towards Oualidia on the coastal road. On a lucky day, you’ll spot the pink flamingos as they gather in the lagoons by the beach. You’ll arrive in Oualidia where an excellent fish BBQ is organized by the locals, served with fresh Moroccan salad and bread.

It is also an opportunity to taste the world famous Oualidia oysters, an export product of Morocco. In the afternoon, you will be settling into your spa hotel where you can relax by the pool or enjoy the traditional Moroccan hammam treatments.

Day 3: Oualidia - Essaouira (approximately 180 kilometers / 112 miles)

A nice coastal ride will take you to your next stop. In the afternoon, you will visit Essaouira, an exceptional example of a late-18th-century fortified town built according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture in a North African context and the favorite city of Bob Marley. You will have the chance to explore the old medina, walk on the wide sandy beach, make a nice Segway ride, or enjoy the laid back souks and stellar seafood.

Day 4: Essaouira - Agadir (approximately 150 kilometers / 93 miles)

Today’s ride will take you onto one of the most amazing coastal roads of Morocco. You will ride through the Souss-Massa National Park where you will have the chance to spot the many goats climbing on the Argan trees. In the afternoon, you will arrive in your paradise for the next two days, a fantastic surf and yoga retreat hotel with beautiful spa facilities and on-site surf school.

Day 5: Rest day in Agadir - optional visit to Paradise Valley

You can either enjoy your rest day taking surf or yoga lessons at the beach or opt for a short day-trip on the bike to Paradise Valley and the Cascade of Immouzer.

Day 6: Agadir - Taroudant (approximately 120 kilometers / 74.5 miles)

Another wonderful touring day awaits you with full of twists and turns on less frequented roads, combined with beautiful surroundings as you ride to Taroudant. Your stop for the day will be at a riad in the village of Taroudant, where you can take a nice walk and there would be great opportunity to buy some Argan oil and the legendary Moroccan saffron growing around this area.

Day 7: Taroudant - Ouirgane (approximately 160 kilometers / 99.5 miles)

Everyone will love this day as you’ll ride on Morocco’s famous Tizi n’Test pass to climb over 2,200 meters in the Atlas. The ride will take you through the High-Atlas National Park, where there will be plenty of turns and switchbacks to enjoy before you arrive in your next stop, Ouirgane.

Day 8: Ouirgane - Marrakesh (approximately 80 kilometers / 50 miles)

Today, you will continue the journey through the Atlas before descending to Marrakesh. During today’s leg, you will enjoy the amazing view of the High-Atlas and the ride through the curvy roads on a perfect tarmac.

You will spend the afternoon on a guided tour to Marrakech to explore the old medina, the Jemaa el-Fnaa square with the snake charmers and its food stalls, the Jarding Majorelle, and there will be plenty of opportunities to buy some gifts and souvenirs. You can also opt for a relaxing afternoon by the pool or refreshing spa treatments at your hotel.

Day 9: Marrakesh - Casablanca (approximately 260 kilometers / 161.5 miles)

Your last motorcycle adventure tour day will start in the afternoon, so you will still have plenty of time to relax by the pool or enjoy a spa / hammam treatment at the hotel. You will arrive back to the headquarter in the evening to return the bikes before your transfer to the hotel.
