APPETIZERS

INTRODUCTION

This tour is designed to be action-packed from start to finish. With plenty of off-road (about 50/50), you will be riding through local villages, traversing deep valleys, zig-zagging through sandstone towns and jumping off-piste into the Sahara sand dunes! Not to mention exploring the ancient medina of Fes and the local souks along the way. This tour has it all!

We have timed the tour to enable riders to have this mind-blowing experience without taking too much time away from family and work. You can fly into Malaga anytime on Friday, we then hold the briefing that night and start riding the following morning for 8-days. We return to Malaga the following Sunday, and riders can fly home the same day. How good is that!?

We keep the group size to a maximum of eight riders to ensure a personalised and unique experience. The great riads and hotels we use are small and in ideal locations, so we can take you into the real Morocco. We want you to be amongst the action and absorb the most you can from the time you have in Morocco. 

So join us for this truly magical and wild experience!
