You will receive your BMW bikes early in the morning before starting your journey towards Bin El Ouidane.

You will pick up your bikes at the hotel and will head to the rock of the Mummy for some off-road riding and to admire the view of the desert from the top of the rocks that offer a unique sight known to only a few.
