TOUR SUMMARY

MOROCCO - A destination for the Overland Adventure Motorcycle rider. A country of amazing contrasts and landscapes.

Magnificent mountain ranges, gorges, canyons, forests, oases, and desert landscapes.

Over the 13 days motorcycle holiday we ride 11 days in Morocco and experience a great combination of mountain & desert pistes. They are linked by some of the most exciting and dramatic scenic roads in Morocco.

We enter North Africa at Tangier on Morocco's Mediterranean coastline and ride through the Rif, Middle Atlas, and High Atlas mountains following ancient Berber trails through mountain villages to witness a life and culture unchanged for centuries. We then ride south through the famous Todra gorge enroute to the Sahara desert.

Our route out of Africa takes us west on old Berber trails and sections of the Paris Dakar pistes to the Draa Valley following some of the ancient trading routes from Tombuktu to the Imperial city of Marrakech then north on the Atlantic coastline to Tangier and out of Africa. 

A route designed by John Fulton from experience gained over 30 years leading adventure tours in Morocco. 

Our  tour has been fully researched and personally ridden by John & Brigitte - as with all our tours, it is run & supported by Wildcat Adventures and led by John & Brigitte.
