This motorcycle journey is all about a unique discovery of the Atlas and all its beauty. We will ride on small winding roads, we will tackle dirt tracks and we will climb to nearly 3,000 meters to see the mountain range from up above. This adventure is for those who have experience in off-road riding on big trail bikes and who want to discover the untouched parts of Morocco in a unique way but with the security of full assistance and guiding.

“Atlas Off-Road Motorbike Adventure (Trip of a lifetime in Morocco) I just can’t express how good this trip is and how beautiful Morocco is. Every day something new and every day bar the first a good 2 to 3 hours of off road action. Typically we would be totally shattered after 60 miles or so of dirt gravel tracks, river crossings, river beds and the most amazing on-road twisties all topped off with stunning scenery. Awesome in the correct use of the word. Yesterday we rode the Cirque de Jaffar one of the epic roads of the Atlas. Mostly off road. Today we did the Tizi Ouano at 3000 metres before lunch and then some road work back on road. Day 5 started with some excellent on road work followed by lunch and then a 45km ride off road on a gravel track in a gorge following a river. How hard could it be? Plenty as it turned out with lots of loose gravel, small rocks, tight turns and steep ascents. With a lot of luck I managed to stay sunny side up. Took about 3 hours to get through this section; without doubt the most challenging but rewarding biking I’ve ever done. Day 6 was relatively easy with some fast on road mountain ascents and descents, a few kilometres off road and finally back to Casablanca for the bike handover and dinner. I’ll just say this for now. A Morocco bike trip must go on your bucket list. I will come back and do more offroad.” March 2019 – Niall from the UK

“Did the Atlas off road Motorbike adventure with Wheels of Morocco in March 2019. The tour exceeded my expectaions on all counts. Fantastic on- and off road tracks each day with increasing difficulty in the off road parts took us through remote and very scenic areas of the Atlas mountains. Wheels of Morocco was very profesional in every way. Many thanks to Greg, Dimitri and Viktoria for an unforgettable adventure. I would love to ride in Morocco with you again some day. All the best”  March 2019 – Jan from Sweden

from May 2019 – starting from Marrakesh!

Day 1: Arrival

Arrival to Marrakesh. Transfer to your hotel, where you will be able to settle in and relax by the pool to prepare for your trip the next morning. You will meet your tour guide and go through a welcome briefing as well as the formalities required before the start and you will receive your welcome pack.

Day 2: Marrakesh – Bin El Ouidane (approx. 200 km)

You will receive your BMW bikes early in the morning before starting our journey towards Bin El Ouidane. We will head towards the High Atlas on normal roads to warm up so you can get used to your bike as well as local driving habits before tackling the winding mountain roads that will provide an excellent insight to the great riding Morocco has to offer. We visit the scenic waterfalls of Ouzoud, where we will have some time to do a short walk around. Our stop for the night will be in a nice hotel on the border of the lake where you can relax by the pool or discuss the first day at the bar.

Day 3: Bin El Ouidane – Azrou (approx. 370 km)

We will leave the hotel in the morning and start our climb into the mountains with magnificent views of the lake beneath and the pine forests. We will tackle plenty of twists and turns before commencing a slow descent towards Khenifra, which will be our lunch stop for the day. From Khenifra, we will turn east and climb through the Azigza National Park, which offers a great setting. The road gets narrower and eventually turns into gravel tracks that zig-zag through the Ifrane National Park, all the way to our hotel, located on the edge of Africa’s largest cedar forest. As this area is home to the infamous Barbary Apes, we will hopefully see them around while riding through the forests.

Day 4: Azrou – Midelt (approx. 130 km)

Before heading up to the plateau of the Atlas and the town of Midelt we start our day with a mild off-road through the cedar forests to discover the beauty of the area and spot the barbary apes living there. We then take the beautiful road to climb up the mountain range to arrive in Midelt around lunchtime. Following our lunch break we will hop on the bikes to tackle some off-road sections and visit the mineral mines in the region.

Day 5: Midelt – Agoudal (approx. 200 km)

We start our day on the nice winding roads of the Atlas through long straights and sweepers until the town of Er-Rich where we take a turn towards the higher peaks of the mountain range though the gravel roads towards the Cirque de Jaffar, one of the most epic tracks in the Atlas. We will ride on smaller roads and dirt tracks until we descend to the valley of Todra and the village of Agoudal where we will spend the night.

Day 6: Agoudal – Skoura (approx. 200 km)

As we will leave Agoudal and head towards Boumalne Dades on the main national road before the real fun begins. We will ride on the wonderful winding roads of the Dades valley where there will be plenty of opportunities for photo stops. This motorcycle ride will take us through the most photographed switchbacks of Morocco. From there we will continue our journey through battered road sections that will turn into gravel roads.

Day 7: Skoura – Marrakesh (approx. 270 km)

The great motorcycle adventure continues as we ride through the small winding roads of the Atlas towards Marrakesh. We will tackle switchbacks and turns as we ride mostly above 2,000 metres before before arriving back to our HQ to return the bikes. You will then be taken back to your hotel where you can spend the rest of the evening rewinding the best moments of the trip or you can decide to take the time to explore the city. This will be the last opportunity to invite your guide for a drink at the bar.

Day 8: Departure

Depending on your flight time, you might take the opportunity to relax or visit the city before the arranged pick-up takes you to the airport.
