For a taster of our mountain bike day tours in the Atlas Mountains, we recommend a ride around the preserved Anougal Valley. This is a ride you won’t forget anytime soon!

Day 1

Amizmiz

Your guide will meet you at your hotel at 08h30.

We’ll bring you and your equipment up to the town of Amizmiz and follow the road up to the high plateaus of Toulkine.

Near the village of Azgour you’ll get out of the 4x4 transport and we unload the bikes. When you’re here, you’ll be at 1500m! And, it’s from here that you start your adventure!

We depart along a dirt track, discovering the first Berber villages of the day.

After a short climb, you will cross a pass and enjoy a superb fast flowing section on a dry wadi. After the quiet pine forests, you will come into the superb village of Imi n’Tala. In Imi n’Tala, a local family will host you for a rewarding tagine lunch and a refreshing mint tea.

Then, it’s back on the bike for an afternoon of more biking adventures!

In the afternoon you will ride through a succession of traditional villages dotted through the beautiful Anougal Valley. Then, you will leave the dirt track to ride a beautiful single-track towards the end of your adventure near Amizmiz.

The MAROC NATURE team will quickly pack your bikes on top of the 4x4. And, then, it’s a quick one hour drive back to Marrakesh and your hotel.

Your Guide

Our guides are all very experienced guides from Morocco. Don’t worry, they speak English, Moroccan, Arabic and French.

Your guide for the day will meet you at your hotel in the morning and will stay with you until the end of the tour back at your hotel. When they first meet you in the morning, they will brief you on the day ahead, weather, safety and the use of your bike. Please pay attention. They are sharing this information so that you can get the most from the day.

Throughout the day, your guide will tell you about the landscapes you’re cycling through, the villages and what life is like for the people who live there.

Our guides are also knowledgeable first-aiders if there’s an injury. If there are any mechanical issues with your bike, your guide will do their best to solve the problem.

Your Bike

If you choose to rent one of our road bikes, we guarantee your bike will be in perfect working condition. All rental packages include a helmet and standard pedals.

If you use SPD pedals, please let us know when you complete your booking. We’ll make sure that we set your bike up the way you want it to enjoy your day out with us.

Food During the Tour

You won't have to worry about food or drink. We will take care of everything.

Mineral water will be supplied all day long. We also bring a mixture of dry fruits to refuel your energy.

We organize an authentic lunch stop at a Berber family house in the middle of a mountain village. Moroccan’s love food! And, love to share food! You will not leave hungry.

Assistance

This tour is fully supported for the full duration of the tour. The minibus that brings you from Marrakesh to the start of cycle will be following behind at a reasonable distance. If there’s an emergency or you’d prefer to enjoy the views from the bus, that’s no problem with us

On Holiday with Non-Cyclists?

If you want to come explore our cycling tour, but you’re the only cyclist in the group, don’t worry. Non-cyclists will get just as much out of the tour from the comfort of the bus. The scenery and the food is just as good!
