13-day round trip to the most varied and safest country in North Africa - the Kingdom of Morocco! To the "Blue City" Chefchaouen. Over the Rif Mountains, the Middle Atlas and the Oued Ziz Gorge to the Sahara town of Merzouga. To the gorges of the High Atlas. To the royal city of Marrakech with a sightseeing tour. To the capital Rabat at the Atlantic Ocean and afterwards to the port city Tangier at the Strait of Gibraltar.
On the first day a short flight to Malaga in Andalusia, takeover of the motorcycles.
Day 2 - Ride to Algeciras and crossing from Gibraltar to Tangier Med. We can take care of some entry formalities on board. Via Tétouan we reach the "blue city" Chefchaouen and watch in the evening the tangle of smallest alleys and souks - pure fascination!
The next day we cross the 2000 meter high plateaus of the Middle Atlas, then one step lower into the wide steppe landscape around Midelt where we spend the night. Through the gorges of the Oued Ziz we cross Errachidia, our first real desert city with its date palm oases and on we go in the direction of the Sahara: The small place Merzouga is our destination, situated directly at the high sand dunes of the Erg Chebbi.
On the following day there is the possibility for the Enduro riders to go on a desert tour with some sand and gravel passages around the Erg Chebbi. Optionally you can book camel, jeep or quad safaris or simply relax at the pool - a real Sahara day!
A short desert stage on beautifully curved country roads leads us to the edge of the High Atlas with its deep gorges between peaks up to 4000 meters high.
The next morning we start to the gorges Todra and Dades. Enduro riders can explore the connection between the two gorges on an 80 km long gravel road at an altitude of almost 3000 metres.
The World Heritage Aït Ben Haddou is located on the route to another highlight: Marrakech, a city like 1001 Nights.
The whole next day we have time to explore this fascinating royal city. In the evening, the Djemaa el Fnaa, the place of the hanged, awaits us with its unbelievable tohuwabohu on monkey and snake ribbons, countless food stalls, orange juice squeezers, musicians, storytellers and jugglers.
Then a ride to the Atlantic Ocean and we reach Morocco's capital Rabat with its beautiful old town, a large fortress and bustling souks. In the morning we continue north to the port city of Tangier at the entrance of the Strait of Gibraltar. Then there are only about 70 kilometres to the ferry port Tanger Med at the Strait of Gibraltar, the ferry passage to Algeciras and the short ride to Malaga to our hotel.
The next day we still have the flight back home and a review of an eventful journey through the Moroccan kingdom.
Morocco is a country between the Middle Ages and modernity. Somewhere in nowhere a Berber rides like 2000 years ago with traditional Djellaba on his completely overloaded donkey through the steppe and then he pulls out his smartphone and films us passing motorcyclists.
Otherwise: The hotels are clean and have almost all wine and beer for us tourists. The food is very digestible and varied. There are plenty of petrol stations, even for smaller tanks. The roads are well constructed and asphalted. The people are extremely polite and helpful. Police checks are frequent, ensure our safety without us on or stopping.
