Guide to Morocco mountain biking holidays
If you are looking for the best MTB tour in Morocco you are in luck. Near to Marrakech is some of the most remarkable mountain biking terrain in North Africa.
The rugged Atlas Mountains to the northeast of Marrakesh are perfect for mountain biking. The sport has entrenched itself in the region and has become a popular day trip for action-oriented visitors to the city.
Directly south of Marrakesh, the Draa River Valley is a lush gateway to the magnificent Sahara Desert. Here, bike trails take you through storybook desert oases and unforgettable palm groves.
Thousands of miles of single track crisscross hillsides, Berber valleys and plateaus in the area. There are also fat-biking tours in the Sahara Desert and various electric mountain bike adventures to be had.
Whether you are looking for day trips or a multi day bike adventure there is plenty of uplift options to avoid serious uphill pedalling. And if you base yourself in the city you can explore timeless Marrakesh when not in the saddle.
Morocco is a fine destination for traveling all year round. Even the warmer summer season is a fine time for traveling, because the air will be warm and dry. In the heat of the day you may look for some shade, but in the morning you may very well participate in an excursion, while during the afternoon you may enjoy a medina and buy nice souvenirs.
Best time for mountain biking trip is autumn (September through November) and spring (March through June).
