The ultimate test of your off-road skills, this adventure goes where few fear to tread

During this 9-day motorbike adventure tour we will cross the Atlas twice through the two most famous passes and discover some of the least frequented pistes of Southern Morocco. Our tour will start and end in the Imperial City of Marrakesh. During the tour we will ride the Tizi n’Test and Tichka passes through the Atlas, spend a night in a special camp in the desert and ride the less frequented dirt roads of the South. You will have the opportunity to see the different sides of Morocco, from the greenery of the mountains and the multicoloured face of the desert, while exploring Marrakech and Ouarzazate, the home of many famous movie scenes. We will ride fast-paces roads filled with switchbacks and flowing corners and we will take the bikes through some rocky off-road sections where speed will be replaced by technicality. This trip is recommended to experienced riders and adventurers who wish to participate in a unique tour.

Day 1 : Arrival
Arrival to Marrakesh. Transfer to your SPA hotel, where you will be able to settle in and relax by the pool before the start of the trip the next morning. You will meet your tour guide and go through the briefing session as well as the formalities required before the start and you will receive your welcome pack.

Day 2: Marrakech – Ouarzazate (approx. 220 km)
After breakfast we will get on our bikes to tackle the heights of the Atlas once again. This time we will climb the Tizi n’Tichka pass up to 2260 meters before taking a turn for our descent which will be through the less frequented road that takes us to the UNESCO World heritage site of Ait Benhaddou. This road will alters wonderful switchbacks and tight corners as well as flowing off-road sections. Once again, you will be struck by the variety of the sights and will take every opportunity to take pictures. We will arrive to Ouarzazate in the afternoon and will explore the city before heading to our wonderful hotel at the lake near the city.

Day 3: Ouarzazate – M’Hamid (approx. 260 km)
We will leave our accommodation after our breakfast by the pool to head towards the desert and sand dunes of M’Hamid. Our ride will follow the many palm trees and plantations of the Draa valley, and the scenery will change as the previous days’ greenery will give place to the yellowish colours of the desert only broken by the occasional green of the oases. We will spend the night in an organised campsite in the desert that will give opportunity to discover the vastness and the beauty of the skies as only seen in places without light pollution.

Day 4: M’Hamid – Foum Zguid (approx. 200 km)
The challenges begin. We will experience a day of riding the remote pistes of the Souths. The roads are mostly flowing off-road track with the occasional sandy patches and rocky sections so off-road experience will help. Riders with less practice will have the opportunity to gain plenty of experience. As the distance is not  excessive this day usually provides a unique feel of the country to the participants.

Day 5: Foum Zguid – Tafraoute (approx. 300 km)
An early start will take us back towards Tafraoute through small winding roads of the Anti-Atlas once again. 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 blue rocks near Tafraoute.

Day 6: Tafraoute – Agadir (approx. 200 km)
This riding day will take us to our wonderful accommodation near the surfing spots of Morocco. The roads will provide plenty of joy for this ultimate day as fast corners and switchbacks will be aplenty before arriving to Agadir and then the coastal road taking us to the hotel. You will have the opportunity to do some surf, SUP or Yoga, or just enjoy a traditional Hammam in the beautiful SPA.

Day 7 : Agadir – Taroudant (approx. 120 km)
The first leg of our journey will take us through the coastal road before turning inland to explore Paradise Valley. Our road will take us through small winding roads in the mountains to arrive to our first pause where we will leave our bikes and go for a short walk to explore the natural water ponds of Paradise valley. Once we are back on the motorcycles, we will cross Agadir and head East on small country roads to reach Taroudant, our destination for the day.

Day 8: Taroudant – Marrakech (approx. 230 km)
Today we will head towards the imperial city of Marrakech. This day will provide a great day of riding as we will cross the Atlas through the winding roads and switchbacks of the Tizi n’Test pass. There will be plenty of opportunities for pictures and you will want to stop from time to time just to take in the breath-taking scenery.
Upon arrival in Marrakech, we will head into the centre to experience the rush of the medina and Jamaa el Fna.

Day 9: Departure
Depending on your flight time, you might take the opportunity to relax at the hotel or decide to take surfing lessons. Those of you who opted to extend their holidays will remain to enjoy the weather and the many activities on offer, while those leaving will be transferred to the airport through their pre-arranged pick-up.

This is one of our most challenging and unique Morocco off road motorcycle tours. If you’re dying for a real moto adventure, look no further.

Best Adventure on 2 Wheels Just finished 1 month in Morocco (Marrakesh). I picked up a BMW 1250GS (Wheels of Morroco’s) with 3949km on the clock and returned with 9085. Total is 5136km / 3192 miles or just over 125 miles a day. That may not seem like much but check out the attached Big Bikes Little Goat Trail video. I took 3 tours, the Challenging Roads tour pushed me passed my comfort zone, thus ADVENTURE ! Riding part of the old Paris-Dakar track on big trail bikes... Through the desert, in the middle of nowhere ? OMG, deep sand on a 1250GS is so much fun but watch out for that Camel Grass and remember keep your head up focusing on future pathways. Now the views are great, check the photos. Here are my recommendations- BESTS. Best Rides: OMG so many great BESTS to list, Tarmac- Up COL Du TICHKA pass from Marrakesh day 1 Challenging Roads Caution the clouds/fog can almost cover the road. Adventure- crossing desert to Foum Zguid day 3 Challenging Roads, Coolest- to Taourirt day 4 Challenging Roads, Best Hotel- El Malara thanks to Bernadette & Jean, Best Tour Guide- Greg Fatrai, Greg specks many languages including Arabic, French, English, Hungarian and can cuss in many more 😉 and oh yes he can ride ! Best Support Team Lead- Abdou he can be hard on equipment and yes he did help me pick up my bike in the sand. Best Tour Rider- Brett M., Tour Jester- TDB but Gandalf is running in first place. If your truly looking for a Moto Adventure you have to consider this one.

Wheels of Marroco and Greg are doing fantastic job and trip was so wonderful starting from bikes, nice food, amazing hotels, unbelievable views and very friendly atmosphere. It is already 2nd trip with them and I am sure that 3rd trip will be with them again. Recommend Wheels of Marocco for everybody. Giedrius

Weekend training and ride If you want to experience Morocco in the best way possible, consider doing it on two wheels. The roads around the country are great, but getting off road is even better. Desert, mountains, ocean...it's all beautiful. On this trip our group only had time for a weekend getaway, but we are already hoping to arrange another adventure this year. Greg and Viki helped our group organize a day of mixed training and riding, and then an all day ride. Just tell them what you want, what your riding abilities are, and you're sure to end up with an incredible experience. Leave yourself plenty of time though; Morocco is quite a large country and each area is unique. Despite the pandemic, travel around Morocco was safe and no problem. Just check on any current restrictions and the guides will be able to help arrange details.

Magnifique voyage Maginifique voyage avec Wheel of Morocco. Nous avons fait un voyage de moto de 7 jours le « « Atlas & Desert tour » au départ de Marrakesk, visité les montagnes, vu les oasis de verdure, couché dans le désert du sahara, superbe paysages. Tout est très bien organisé par Vicki pour la partie avant voyage, son conjoint Greg est notre guide à moto , il s’assure que tout va bien et que tous font un bon voyage avec son assistant Abdou qui suit le groupe avec son camion de support (et les bagages). les motos sont en excellente ordre, les hotels très bien 4 étoiles, Greg nous a fait découvrir tout les plus beaux paysages de la région lors d’arrêt chaque jour pendant notre trajet et il nous fait découvrir la cuisine typique marocaine par de beaux et bons arrêts. Vraiment un de mes plus beaux voyage à tout point de vue, beaucoup de plaisirs, merci Wheels of Morocco ???

Long weekend We had a fabulous long weekend in late October. It was the first long trip for my wife as pillion and we both had a fabulous time all helped by the highly professional approach of Greg and Viktoria who are delightful. The route was well planned, riding at our own pace with great accommodation at each destination. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for our lovely hosts who looked after us extremely well including a very efficient transfer from/to the airport. We plan to come back for a longer trip!

That's why I go for a ride with professionals We had a 3 day long weekend with Wheels of Morocco. Professional organization, super rides, BMW bikes and superb accommodations featured days spent together. Aside from riding, there is time every day to see the sights in the city. We've had a lifetime of experience, and we're sure we'll go riding them again. Thanks to Greg and Viki 3 napos hosszú hétvégén vettünk részt a Wheels of Morocco-val. Profi szervezés,szuper útvonalak,kiváló állapotú motorok és pompás szállások jellemezték az együtt töltött napokat. A motorozáson kívül, mindennap jutott idő arra is hogy megnézzünk egy-egy látványosságot az adott városban. Életre szóló élményt kaptunk, és biztos hogy újra el megyünk motorozni velük. Köszönjük Gregnek és Vikinek

TOUR MAROCCO io da sempre scettico su paesi stranieri mi sono dovuto ricredere, il marocco e in particolare marrakech e le montagne circostanti sono state una bella scoperta che insieme alla giusta compagnia con cui ero e alla sapiente guida di greg e del suo aiutante , mi hanno fatto passare dei bei momenti facendo si ne avro' sempre un ottimo ricordo e forse chissa' magari ripeterla su tragitti sempre marocchini. ciao e a presto.

7 AMAZING days of riding in Morocco!! My husband and I spend seven amazing days on a private tour during our honeymoon touring the beautiful roads of Morocco having the time of our lives. Wheels spend extra time and energy making sure we had upgraded accommodations and many special touches for our honeymoon ride. The bikes were in great shape, the food and accommodations spectacular, and the route well planned. Our guide, Dimitry, was especially FABULOUS! He is a very experienced rider who helped make us feel comfortable riding on the hectic Moroccan roads and even gave us a few pointers. Some of the many benefits of a tour with Wheels is they have spent years scouting out the best roads, building relationships with local hotels and restaurants, and understand local language and customs. We've been home for two days and are already dreaming about our next trip! Thanks Dims and Wheels for a GREAT trip! L & G
