Atlas Grand Tour - Morocco

March 20 - March 27 2021
Morocco, North Africa

Put the well-travelled routes behind you and enjoy the adventure and pleasure of riding in Morocco.

Our cycling holidays and tours are for the discerning cyclist, there is a real feeling of adventure but above all they are fun.

In Morocco, you will ride in fabulous surroundings. Departing from Marrakesh we ride to the base of Atlas and then on through the foothills and into the Atlas mountains to climb to our first overnight stay in the famous high Atlas village of Imlil below Jebel Toubkal.

We will then circumnavigate the Atlas around Toubkal the highest mountain in the Atlas, crossing the Tizi n'Test (2092m) an awe-inspiring pass that crosses the Atlas and connects to Taroudant and Taliouine. Cutting right through the heart of the Atlas, the road was blasted out of the mountains by the French from 1926 to 1932 – the first modern route to link Marrakesh with the Souss plain and the desert.

We then cross through the Souss plain with the desert to our south and the Atlas to the north, the scenery is stunning and like nothing else.

Finally, before returning to Marrakesh we re-cross the High Atlas via the Tizi n'Tichka (2260m) known as the gateway of the Sahara Desert, a mountain pass linking Marrakesh to the city of Ouarzazate
