On this 14-day round trip we will get to know a cross-section of the most varied and safest country in North Africa - the Kingdom of Morocco! To the "blue city" of Chefchaouen, over the Rif Mountains, the Middle Atlas through the gorges of the Oued Ziz, to the oasis cities of Errachidia, Erfoud, the Sahara village of Merzouga near the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Later we cross the gorges of the High Atlas, explore the royal city of Marrakech during a city tour. We continue to the Atlantic Fortress Essaouira, the legendary Casablanca and finally to the port city of Tangier.
We have packed many inclusive services into our offer: Flights, motorcycle transport to Malaga and back, ferry passages, half board, luggage transport in the accompanying bus, also fuel and toll in Morocco are already included in the travel price.
Flights from and to airports other than Frankfurt can be arranged.
On Saturday a short flight to Malaga in Andalusia - overnight stay in our hotel near the airport, the motorcycles are already waiting in the hotel garage. The next morning we ride the approximately 130 km to the ferry port in Algeciras and start the approximately 1 1/2 hour crossing through the Strait of Gibraltar to Tangier Med.
Via Tétouan we reach the "blue city" of Chefchaouen and in the evening we have a look at the maze of small alleys and souks - pure fascination! The next day we will cross the 2000 meter high plateaus of the Middle Atlas, then one step deeper into the wide steppe landscape around Midelt where we will stay overnight. Through the canyons of the Oued Ziz we cross Errachidia, our first real desert town with its date palm oases on the fourth day and continue towards the Sahara: The small town of Merzouga is our destination, situated directly on the high sand dunes of the Erg Chebbi.
The following day, the enduro riders have the opportunity to go on a desert tour on gravel and some sand around the Erg Chebbi. Optionally, camel, jeep or quad safaris can be booked or simply relax by the pool - a real Sahara day!
A short desert stage on wonderfully winding country roads takes us to the edge of the High Atlas with its deep gorges between peaks up to 4000 metres high. The very next morning we start to the gorges Todra and Dades. Enduro riders can explore the gravel roads of the High Atlas on a guided round tour.
The World Heritage Site Aït Ben Haddou is located on the route to the Atlas Pass Tizi n'Tichka (2260 m) and then we reach another highlight of this trip: Marrakech, a city like from 1001 nights. The whole next day we have time to explore this fascinating royal city. A stroll through the endless souks and bazaars with unique souvenirs is a special experience. In the evening the Djemaa el Fnaa, the place of the hanged, awaits us with its incredible hullabaloo on monkey and snake tamers, countless food stalls, orange juice squeezers, musicians, storytellers and jugglers.
The next day it is only a short ride west to the Atlantic Fortress of Essaouira. Built on a rock above the surf waves, this city was already an important port for Phoenicians, Romans, Spaniards and Portuguese. A walk through the old medina and the busy fishing port with its countless blue boats and ships is unforgettable. At the snack stands in the port you can have the freshly caught fish, crabs, mussels and all kinds of unknown sea creatures grilled and tasted.
Along the toasted Atlantic coast we now head north again - the lively Casablanca awaits us as our next stage destination. In the evening we stroll through the boulevards and enjoy this flair between Arabic tradition and modernity.
The next morning we will quickly head for the port city of Tangier. On the way we stop at a fish restaurant on the Atlantic beach, look at the lighthouse high up on the rocky coast of Cap Spartel and enjoy the wonderful view over the Atlantic Ocean and over to the Spanish mainland.
On the last day of the journey, there are only 30 kilometres of winding coastal road to the ferry port Tanger Med at the Strait of Gibraltar. Another short ferry passage to Algeciras and Europe has us back. On board we have the opportunity to review all the incredible impressions of this journey. A short ride to Malaga, final dinner in the beach restaurant ...
Morocco is a country between the Middle Ages and modernity. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere a Berber rides like in Jesus' times with a traditional Djellaba on his overloaded donkey through the steppe and then he pulls out his smartphone and films us passing motorcyclists, you really can't think of anything more.
Otherwise: The hotels are clean and many (NOT ALL) have wine and beer for us tourists. The food is very digestible and varied. There are enough gas stations, also for smaller tanks. The roads are well developed and asphalted. The people are extremely friendly and helpful. Police checks are frequent, they take care of our safety without stopping or slowing us down.
