Description

Experience motorcycle trip full of adventure and exoticism

In the middle of it and not only in it: This guided adventure motorcycle tour through Morocco lets you feel the magic of the Orient, on the back of your motorcycle! Morocco, this diverse and exotic country, where history and modernity meet in a very special way, is one of the last remaining kingdoms of the African continent. Separated from Europe by the Strait of Gibraltar, barely 14 km wide, Morocco offers us the space for one of our most beautiful guided motorcycle tours.

Our motorcycle tour starts in the area of Lörrach, southwest Germany, near the Swiss border. From here we travel through France and Spain to the sun-drenched Catalonian capital. Here in Barcelona our ferry leaves in the morning with destination Africa. After 26 hours of sea travel, Tangier med awaits us, the largest Moroccan port, nestled between Tangier and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.

Now our motorcycle adventure on the third largest continent of our earth can begin. Tangier, the multicultural coastal city on the Atlantic Ocean - a melting pot of cultures - is our gateway to the south. Here we feel the oriental way of life for the first time.

Where history and modernity meet in such a unique way, we experience the most beautiful motorcycle routes, framed by imposing natural wonders. Here, like in no other country, the feeling of freedom and adventure merge with the magic of the landscape and oriental flair.

Mountains - Sand Dunes - Waterfalls - Marrakech

Soon the most beautiful areas of the Kingdom of Morocco are at our feet. The historical Rif mountains, the breathtaking Middle and High Atlas and last but not least the sand sea of the Sahara at Erg Chebbi.

The imposing waterfalls of Ouzoud, whose floods plunge more than 110 meters into the depths, offer us a photo motif of the extra class. But the royal cities of Meknes, Fes and, as the highlight, Marrakesh with the legendary Djemaa el Fna also have their special charm. The latter transports us back to past centuries with its colorful hustle and bustle in its narrow, centuries-old alleys and the beguiling scents of spices and herbs.

The legendary road of the Kasbahs

It is known far beyond the borders of the country - the legendary road of the Kasbahs. This stretch of road looks like something out of a storybook and offers the Todra and Dades gorges with their steep walls up to 300 meters high as highlights. And Aït Benhaddou, located on the old caravan road at the foot of the High Atlas, has already served as a backdrop for many Hollywood productions and is another highlight of our motorcycle trip. The entire old town center has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1987.

Sunrise in the desert camp

Palm groves and oases announce the proximity of the Sahara. At Erg Chebbi, also called the largest sandpit in the world, we can feel the desert up close at the southernmost point of our motorcycle tour. Here, in our desert camp, we can admire the incredible starry sky before falling asleep, and in the morning we can admire the sunrise as it only exists in the desert.

A touch of Grand Canyon

Heading north again, the imposing mountain landscapes around the Midelt region give a hint of the Grand Canyon. Following ancient caravan routes, we reach the Mediterranean Sea again on the most beautiful panoramic roads, where we slowly approach the European continent again.

Arriving home, the diverse impressions of this extraordinary motorcycle trip will accompany you for a long time ...

Day 2: Stage to Valence in the South of France

It's quite a ride to Barcelona, where our Morocco ferry departs. We want to cover half the distance - just over 500 km - today, and for this we will also use France's highways to a good extent.

After starting at the meeting point hotel, we ride directly into France near Mulhouse. Soon the city of Besancon passes by on the left. A little later we turn south. When we cross the Rhone at Lyon, we've almost made it: now it's only 100 km down the Rhone valley until we reach our stage destination.

Overnight stay: Valence (South of France)

Daily mileage: approx. 530 km

-

Day 3: Valence - Barcelona

After breakfast we head south via Montpellier and Narbonne to Spain, where today's stage ends on the Costa Brava. Again, we mainly use the highway. A good 100 km south of the Pyrenees we head for the Catalonian capital and port city of Barcelona, where we will be staying today.

Overnight stay: Barcelona (Spain)

Daily mileage: approx. 540 km

-

Day 4: Day at sea: ferry crossing Barcelona - Tangier med

Daily mileage: approx. 10 km (day at sea)

-

Day 5: Arrival in Morocco: From the port to the city of Tangier

Until after lunch we can enjoy the crossing and the amenities on board. Then in the afternoon we dock in Tangier med.

Still in the port, at the customs border, we meet our interpreter. He always has an open ear for all questions, and will accompany us on our entire journey through the Kingdom of Morocco.

After going through customs formalities, we ride to Tangier City to check into our first hotel in Morocco. Even though it is only a short distance to ride, we feel it clearly: adventure and exoticism are in the air, and provide a very special and expectant atmosphere after the long journey.

Overnight stay: Tangier City (Morocco)

Daily distance: approx. 60 km

-

Day 6: Through the Rif Mountains to the royal city of Meknes

Our first real stage in Morocco leads through fascinating landscapes of the western Rif Mountains, which are green and fertile especially in the first half of the year.

Via Chefchaouen we reach our destination for the day, the royal city of Meknes. After dinner we will have the opportunity to admire the impressive old town during an evening walk.

Overnight stay: Meknes (Morocco)

Daily distance: approx. 300 km

-

Day 7: Through central Morocco to the foot of the High Atlas Mountains

After an oriental breakfast, the journey continues south. Soon the fertile plain of Meknes is left behind as we head up into the western foothills of the Middle Atlas.

In the afternoon we reach the town of Beni Mellal. It is our "gateway to the High Atlas", and a magnificent pass road with great curves and unique viewpoints forms the crowning conclusion of today's stage. And at the end of this ingenious motorcycle route lies our exquisite accommodation - directly above the reservoir of Bin el Ouidane.

Overnight stay: Bin el Ouidane (Morocco)

Daily distance: approx. 320 km

Day 8: Ouzoud waterfalls and continue to Marrakech

Right at the beginning of this day, lovers of mountain routes get their money's worth: Via numerous serpentines we climb the plateau of Azilal. There we visit the Ouzoud Falls, the highest and most water-rich waterfalls in Morocco. Time for a walk! Helmets and jackets can stay in the support vehicle while we explore the impressive natural spectacle on foot. In the meantime, it is also time for the lunch break and we have a snack in front of this unique scenery before we return to our machines.

The compass now points west as we cruise along the northern flank of the High Atlas Mountains - our destination for today is Marrakech, the "Pearl of the South", royal city and landmark of Morocco.

Overnight stay: Marrakech (Morocco)

Daily distance: approx. 250 km

-

Day 9: Marrakech (day off)

Today we experience Marrakech! The private bus will take us to the heart of the legendary city. On board is a local guide who will show and explain selected sights.

We will experience this and much more up close during our German-speaking guided tour.

At the end of the day we dine in one of the best restaurants in the city and then let ourselves be enchanted once again by the hustle and bustle of the medina.

Overnight stay: Marrakech (Morocco)

Daily mileage: free of charge

Day 10: Across the High Atlas to Boumalne Dades

Anyone who keeps a list of the most impressive mountain passes for bikers has probably had it on their list for a long time: the 2,260 m high Col du Tichka. The pass is still the most important connection between the northwestern parts of the country and the Sahara foothills south of the High Atlas.

After crossing the mountains, we take a short ride to the road of the Kasbahs and the fortified town of Ait-Benhaddou, considered one of the most beautiful reservoir castles in Morocco and a UNSECO World Heritage Site. Therefore, we take time here for a coffee break and to shoot one or the other souvenir photo.

While we follow the road of the Kasbahs further to the east, we feel that the Sahara is no longer far away. Lush green trees have become rare in the landscape. In the late afternoon we reach our quarters near the Dade Gorge.

Overnight stay: Boumalne Dades (Morocco)

Daily distance: approx. 330 km

-

Day 11: To the Todra Gorge and further into the desert near Merzouga

In the morning we ride up to the Todra Gorge, and marvel at the rugged 300 m high rock faces, which are also very popular with climbers. In front of this magnificent scenery we take time for a coffee or tea before we return to the plateau and set course for Merzouga.

There, in the afternoon, we finally approach the highlight of our great Morocco tour: the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga. Here we saddle up on camels and enjoy a one-hour ride to our luxury desert camp. Under a starry sky we have dinner and let ourselves be enchanted by the majesty of the desert.

Overnight: Luxury desert camp near Merzouga (Morocco)

Daily distance: about 260 km

Day 12: Merzouga - Fes

It is worth getting up early today, because the sunrise in the desert is one of the most beautiful natural spectacles Africa has to offer. At this moment we can experience the fascination of Morocco with all senses!

Our desert camp also marks the southernmost point of our journey. After breakfast, four-wheel ride jeeps take us back to our motorcycles, we get our helmets and jackets from the support vehicle and turn north again.

Our stage today leads us through the most beautiful areas of Morocco, desert landscape, stone desert, palm groves and dried up rivers alternate and animate us to photo stops. Over the Col du Zad and along old caravan routes we reach the historic royal city of Fes in the evening.

Once we have torn ourselves away from the overwhelming panorama, we dive right into the action and experience the most beautiful, exotic and historic places of the city up close.
