Unwind your soul as you wind your way across Morocco This 10-day journey indulges the rider both on and off the bike, at every stop. From the idyllic lagoon waters of Oualidia, you’ll make you way down the Atlantic coast to the resort town of Essaouira, spotting flamingos and sampling oysters along the way. After a rejuvenating stop at a yoga retreat and spa, we head inland over the mighty Tizi n’Test pass and through the winding roads of the High-Atlas National Park. After the switchbacks and cliff views, we descend into the Imperial city of Marrakech where you can explore the ancient medina, snake charmers and food stalls. When you’re done exploring, you can reflect on your journey by the hotel pool or in the spa. Some of the highlights of this trip include the lagoon of Oualidia, Atlantic coastline, Essaouira resort town, tree-climbing goats, Tizi n’Test pass and imperial city of Marrakech.

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, as well as the other participants and go through a welcome briefing, before our welcome dinner.

Day 2 : Marrakesh – Essaouira (approx. 190 km)
In the morning you will be transferred to our workshop to get your bike and go through the formalities before the start of our tour. On our first day we will discover to the vast planes that lay between the Atlas and the Ocean. Our ride will take us through smaller country roads to our first stop – the stellar coastal town of Essaouira and will most probably have the opportunity to see the goats perched on the argan trees along the way. The afternoon we will visit the city, exceptional example of a late-18th-century fortified town, built according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture in a North African context and the favourite city of Bob Marley. You will have the chance to explore the old medina, walk on the wide sandy beach, or enjoy the laid-back souks and stellar seafood.

Day 3 : Essaouira – Agadir (approx. 150 km)
Today’s ride will take us on one of the most amazing coastal roads of Morocco. We will ride through the Souss-Massa National Park, where you will also have the chance to spot the many goats climbing on the Argan trees. The afternoon we will arrive to our Paradise for the next two days, a fantastic surf and yoga retreat hotel with beautiful SPA facilities and on-site surf school, right on the beach. Day 4 : Rest day in Agadir – optional visit of Paradise Valley You can either enjoy your rest day taking surf or yoga lessons at the beach or opt for a short daytrip on the bike to Paradise Valley and the Cascade of Immouzer. This ride goes through small twisty roads along the river, offering unique scenery. We will then park the bikes and go for a short hike to explore the natural water ponds and even go for a swim if we want to.

Day 5 : Agadir – Mirleft (approx. 140 km)
In the morning, we’ll leave our hotel and cross the city of Agadir to reach the southern coastal road that leads us to Mirleft. We will head to Legzira beach where you can walk on the vast sand beaches and beneath the beautiful arches sculpted by the sea in the cliffs.

Day 6 : Mirleft – Tafraoute (approx. 150 km)
An early start will take us towards Tafraoute through small winding roads of the Anti-Atlas. We will ride the smaller national roads where twists and turns become more and more frequent as we approach the mountains. You will thoroughly enjoy this ride on roads where traffic is less common than around cities. Before getting to our accommodation and a well-deserved dinner, we will take the pistes to explore the famous painted rocks and enjoy an unparalleled sunset.

Day 7 : Tafraoute – Taroudant (approx. 150 km)
Another wonderful touring day awaits us full on twisty mountain roads combined with beautiful surroundings as we ride to Taroudant. Our stop for the day will be in a riyadh surrounded by the old city walls. Before dinner, we will head to the buzzing centre and explore the souk, getting a glimpse of local life in a less touristic environment. This is a great opportunity to buy some Argan oil or the legendary Moroccan saffron growing around this area.

Day 8 : Taroudant – Ouirgane (approx. 160 km)
Everyone will love this day as we’ll ride on Morocco’s famous Tizi n’Test pass to climb over 2,100 metres in The Atlas. Our ride will take us through the High-Atlas National Park, where there will be plenty of turns and switchbacks to enjoy before we arrive to our stop for the night, the remote village of Ouirgane. A real chill out place, also offering endless hiking opportunities in the area.

Day 9 : Ouirgane – Marrakesh (approx. 80 km)
Today’s short ride will take us through the Atlas before descending to Marrakesh. During today’s leg, you will enjoy the amazing view of the High-Atlas and the ride through the curvy roads on a perfect tarmac. We will spend the afternoon on a guided tour in Marrakech, to explore the Old Medina, the Jamaa el Fna square with the snake-charmers and its food stalls, the Jardin Majorelle, and there will be plenty of opportunity to buy some gifts and souvenirs if you wish. You can also opt for a relaxing afternoon by the pool or refreshing SPA treatments at the hotel.

Day 10 : 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.

Atlas & Desert Tour April 2023 This tour exceeded my expectations in all respects. I chose Wheels of Morocco based on various factors including their professional and informative website, itinerary, maximum group size, the fact that the company is based in Morocco, and the multitudes of good reviews on Tripadvisor. WOM did not disappoint, from my initial enquiries and communication with Viki (who always answered extremely quickly) right through to the end of the trip. Everything was well organized and my bike was in excellent condition and faultless throughout the tour. All accommodation was of a very high standard. Abdou our guide and Amine the support truck driver were very informative, personable and always happy to help. The tour was well structured so there was plenty of riding time but you also arrived at your accommodation each day in plenty of time to relax/swim etc. before dinner. The variety of landscapes we saw over 7 days of riding was amazing. I also liked that we stopped at local and smaller restaurants/cafes for coffee breaks and lunches rather than big establishments catering for mass tourism. If you're looking to ride a motorbike in Morocco on a tour with a great itinerary, professional guides, excellent accommodation and quality bikes and support, then WOM is a great choice.

Challenging Roads Had an amazing time riding offroad in Morocco. Greg and Abdou were terrific guides, we stayed in outstanding accommodations, and the riding was as challenging as promised. Learned a lot from Greg about riding in deep sand, despite my occasional tipovers! If you’re thinking about riding Morocco, this is the crew to ride with!

Challenging Roads Absolutely awesome adventure riding experience that explores Morocco through different terrains. The trip was well planned and well supported by the team leading the expedition with recovery vehicle, tools and spares for any unforeseen mishaps. The motorcycles were all new and in excellent condition. All accommodations were most likely the most luxurious that could be found in each place we stopped, with the occasional spas and with fantastic food. The routes chosen by the guides has been scrutinized over years of experience on the roads of Morocco to give a truly unique way to experience what Morocco has to offer. Highly Recommended

Just Brilliant!! I was fortunate enough to do the Challenging Roads tour with Wheels of Morocco in December and it was simply BRILLIANT. Everything was top notch - the bikes, the country, the people, the food, the accommodation and the routes we followed…..and it simply would not have been the same without our leader, Greg, and support driver Abdoul, who were just fantastic. Overall a brilliant experience and one I would recommend to anyone.

Outstanding Adventure across the Atlas Mountains Great bikes, awesome terrain and excellent company. Greg and his team are a safe pair of hands with excellent knowledge of the country. They put together an effortless private package for us, which enabled us to see so much in a short space of time. We went from the bustle of Marrakech to the remote wilds of the Atlas Mountains covering vastly varying terrain. Passing through remote passes and staying in remote villages steeped in history. Simply put it was an outstanding adventure, thank you.

re-booked already! What a great trip! WoM know the country inside-out. Organisation, leadership and support was second-to-none. Greg and Abdou make a great team. Morocco has it all; great roads, incredible scenery, good food and friendly people. The tour took in so many landscapes; cedar forests, the stunning mountainscape and of course the desert, which really was something else. The roads are mostly super grippy new tarmac, with plenty of twisties and flowing bends. Already re-booked for a long weekend tour for next spring!

Desert and Atlas Tour I've been organising my own tours for many years but thought I'd give a guided tour a try, I'm glad I did. Morocco is an amazing country with some of the best roads I've ever ridden and I've ridden all over the world. Viktoria handled the booking, payment and communication really well, Abdou took care of the logistics and called the airport a dozen times until they found my lost luggage (thanks again) and Greg was a great guide, photographer and tour leader. I have a GS at home so opted for a Tenere 700 which turned out to be a great choice, quick enough for Morocco and very agile. We rode mountain passes as good as any you'd find in The Alpes, through forests and of course the desert which was my personal favourite. The diversity of the roads and landscapes you experience in 7 days is truly amazing. The hotels were comfortable and had lots of character, the food was great and even if we were in a "dry hotel" Abdou would always manage to find us beer somewhere! I loved every minute of the trip and will very likely be back to do the Challenging Roads tour. Thanks guys, hopefully see you again soon.

Great biking trip. Great trip, fantastic roads and scenery and very well run. Greg can sometimes be a bit blunt but on a trip like this you need clear direction and leadership and he does that very well. Enjoyed the trip and the company of our fellow travellers, so much so we'll be booking again next year.

5 stars for a good reason I can’t say enough good things about this tour or the company that runs it. It’s well organized and communication with the company is excellent, I found any questions I had were answered promptly and there was a lot of helpful information passed along that made getting paperwork and luggage packed much easier. The bikes are top notch and well maintained both before and during the ride. Accommodations were fantastic and the food stops during the day were great and provided a great feel for local culture and cuisine. The route was so much fun with amazing scenery and that provided miles of smiles. This is the perfect way to get your feet wet if you’ve never toured outside of your home country. Stop wondering if this is for you and start booking. The only adventure you regret is the one you don’t take.

On this tour you will…

  • Explore the beautiful Atlantic coastline
  • See the Argan tree-climbing goats
  • Ride the Tizi n’Test pass
  • Explore Essaouira and Marrakech
