  • One of the best winter-sun cycling destinations
  • Bike across the Atlas Mountains to the amazing landscape of the Jebel Sahro
  • 2 nights in Marrakech and the chance to visit the UNESCO listed Djemma el-Fna

This is a classic mountain bike holiday adventure in Morocco’s arid Jebel Sahro region. With the snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas to the north and the Sahara to the south, the climate of the Jebel Sahro in southern Morocco is the perfect place for cycling outside the summer months. From the intoxicating city of Marrakech, we drive across the Atlas Mountains to Tinerhir and begin biking in the magnificent Todra Gorge, whose towering walls attract rock climbers from all over the world. Ascending on tarmac and then on hard pack jeep roads, we find ourselves in a remote mountain area, with nomadic Berber shepherds and views of the Atlas peaks. Crossing the Tamtattouchte Pass (2800m), we drop down into the beautiful Dades Valley, the so-called ‘Valley of the 1000 Kasbahs’. Our journey continues on gravel (piste) roads, through Boulmane Dades and by way of the striking rock formation of Bab n’Ali (Ali’s Gate), to finally end up at the oasis town of Zagora on the very edge of the Sahara. With its flexible itinerary and time to explore the souks and sounds of Marrakech, this great biking adventure is perfect for anyone looking to make a winter escape to Morocco and the pink and ochre coloured mountains of the Jebel Sahro!
