A challenging climb until almost 2.000m of altitude awaits us on the first stages of the day. From this vantage point, enjoy one of the best views of the whole tour over the Atlas Mountain Range. A beautiful descent will lead us to the city of Kelaa M’Goun, encountering Berber shepherds along the day. On the route until the famous Roses Valley we will ride by Boulmane Dadès, a small but busy city. Here, appreciate the beautiful Kasbahs and visit the Dadès Gorges.

 

The plans for today are simply outstanding. We will cross a remote and wild sector of the Atlas, starting with an ascent through a dry river bed, reaching the highest elevation of the day with 2.000m of altitude. A breathtaking descent along incredible canyons will follow. Then visit the fantastic Todgha Gorge, and finish the day riding on a single track through an extensive  palm grove, following the Todgha river.

 

This is one of the greatest days of the tour. A long and challenging climb to conquer the volcanic massif Jbel Saghro! The majestic landscapes of this massif will stay in your memory, on an ascent that will get us to an elevation of almost 2.300m of altitude. It will then be time to descend a long and spectacular trail on the way to N’Koub, a city full of isolated Kasbahs.

 

The final day of riding will be marked by the passage through impressive canyons, while we leave the mountains behind and pedal towards the desert.

Close to the end of the day, we will follow tracks that pass through gorgeous palm groves on the way to Zagora, where we will see the first dunes. Finally we will have a view of the first big dune of the desert and the arrival in Zagora where this fantastic adventure will end.
