Cycle Morocco

From £1195 for 14 days
Trip Overview
Desert sands and snow-topped mountains. Red cliff gorges and seaside paths. Hairpin turns and alpine passes. Grab a bike and see them all on a cycle through Morocco, a land overflowing with mystery, history and culture. A place where the people welcome you with endless stories, and the landscape defies its harshness to offer you beach, desert, forest, mountain, and orchards. From Marrakesh, circle the country through Tangier, laidback Chefchaouen, medieval Fes, the cool of the High Atlas Mountains and the heat of the Sahara, and ride to the ancient city of Ait Benhaddou.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Morocco. Marrakech is a feast for the senses - be enticed by the alluring colours of the spice markets, the taste of delectable foods, and the scent of perfumed gardens. Your adventure begins today with a welcome meeting at 6pm – double check with reception for the time and place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. Please have your insurance details and next of kin information on hand for collection at this meeting. After the welcome meeting, head out to the city’s unique Djemaa el-Fna, a square that transforms into a hive of activity at night. Enjoy a dinner together (included) while snake-charmers, henna-painters and storytellers ply their trade nearby. Riding distance: none
