Morocco’s beauty, culture and access make it ideal for enduro/ freeride mountain biking holiday in Morocco, The Atlas Mountains are located just 1H from the heart of Marrakech, and are one of the more populous parts of the range: there are friendly Berber villages tucked away in the high valleys and up on the plateaux, linked by a dense network of rugged mule paths – fantastic for exploring on two wheels.
We will be waiting for you at the airport in Marrakech. We then transfer you to the hotel/Riad in the heart of the Medina. You can spend the afternoon visiting Marrakech.
You will collect from your hotel in Marrakech for the 50 minute drive in a 4×4 vehicle through the countryside to the chosen launch site. The flight taking you over the beautiful countryside and local villages surrounding Marrakech. After a gradual descent you will be taken into a village for mint tea and home baked bread, after lunch Transfers from Marrakech to Ski resort of Oukaimeden at 2660m, ride from Oukaimeden uphill to Tizi Addi, we will ride then a technical singletrack down to Tachedirt valley, and then to Tingherine from here we will climb up to Tizi Tamatert 2300m, from here ride down on singletrack to Imlil, overnight in Imlil.
Today we are going over the pass Tizi Tzikerte, Our bikes are transported by a mule and we are all walking to the pass. Then we will hit the road again with our bikes. A nice but difficult – singletrack – descent over rough and sometimes steep slopes through the beautiful valley of Ouazzaden to the village of Id Aissa.
This is a day of singletrack. The Guest house is at nearly 1800 m in altitude and today is the day to ‘cash in’ on the altitude! This path links three or four villages as we traverse from one to the other. There are a couple of little climbs of 3-400m which catapult us into incredibly fast sections. We stop for lunch in a secluded wooded part of the riverbed where mint tea is waiting for our arrival. After lunch we’re off again.
A short warm up of 2 km and we’re crossing a large dam to find the entrance to yet another incredible ribbon of singletrack to a spectacular gorge. This is truly breathtaking scenery to match some of the best singletrack in the world! From here we have a gentle ride to the gite 10km outside Amizmiz (1005m) this day will take us to Ait Zitoun village where we can enjoy a nice hammam after a long ride.
On the way to our next destination we make a cycle through olive groves to Berber house. There we enjoy freshly baked bread from the wood oven, olives and Min tea with a local family. We continue uphill through the Middle Atlas until we reach our lunch stop. During the meal enjoy a nice view. And it’s time to go on, another 300 m high, until we reach the pass. Through a high plateau we bike on single trails and slopes up to our accommodation in Ait Hamed.
We start with a gentle traverse and climb to the head of the pass. This includes a 10 minute hike-a-bike but the rewards the top are incomprehensible! From here the singletrack is fast and flowing to start and as it drops in height becomes more technical into the riverbed. One of the sections of singletrack runs through a dry riverbed. From slow, super technical to smooth and flat out and everything in between! This continues for hours, without a letup anywhere. The finale is a rickety bridge crossing which takes us to the van for a late lunch. After lunch you can either transfer in the van to Ijoukak for the last night in the mountains .
Starting after breakfast from the gite, this is the last day on the bike and possible the best! First step riding up to the pass, amazing view over the Atlas Mountains, after that an amazing singletrack take you to Ouirgane where your end bike trip, after heading back to Marrakech.
After breakfast, transfers to Marrakech Airport
