This tour begins in the medina of Marrakech, we will cycle through the maze of narrow alleys surrounded by colorful shops, smells of argan, sandalwood, and delicious food. When the sun sets, the time is right to dive into the kaleidoscopic Djema el Fna, the main square of the Marrakech Medina, where street food vendors, acrobats and snake charmers seem to all follow the Berber drums’ rhythm played by the street musicians.
We will have dinner in a rooftop restaurant where it is possible to taste the many flavours of Moroccan cuisine and enjoy the view of the Atlas Mountains, the real protagonist of this expedition. Moroccan people call the High Atlas “the roof of Morocco”, it stretches over 750 km in length and reaches 4,167 m high, we will cross it twice, and cycle up and down its beautiful valleys. It will make our legs hurt but it will pay us back with his colours, deserts, and snowy peaks.
Along its roads, we will cross remote villages, lush pases, and ancient Kasbas and experience Moroccan hospitality. Cycling in Morocco is an intense and unique journey that is hard to put into words, you have to experience it in the person.
