Morocco Bike Tours
The Land Where the Sun Sets
As you cross the sun-baked Saharan dunes and ascend the soaring High Atlas Mountains, a strange sensation creeps over you (don’t worry, it’s not heat exhaustion—we’ve got you covered): it’s the stunning surroundings seeping into your soul. We believe a place like Morocco is best enhanced by local characters sharing their stories and lives, and after more than a decade here, we’ve earned plenty of friends. From souk to Kasbah to remote Berber village, we’ve got the authentic experiences right here. Unleash your inner nomad.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard how I like to do that.”

Day by Day
Drive through desert landscapes and view hidden Berber villages where it feels like time doesn’t exist. Bike on the outskirts of the small village of Skoura at the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains and through the Almond Valley.
Bike along the road of the Oasis of Foumzguid to find camels waiting to take us into the desert sunset for an unforgettable night of dancing and feasting under millions of stars at our private Berber camp.
Cross paths with camels, goats and smiling kids on donkeys as we bike back to Skoura past kasbahs and lively local villages.
Embark on a modern-day caravan over the High Atlas Mountains following the same route travelled centuries ago. Hike up to a remote Berber village, perched high above the valley where we’ll have a typical Berber lunch in an authentic local home.
Bike the foothills of the Tizi’n’Test pass along natural landscapes and later hear from our friend Wafa Amagui, a young active mother from Marrakech who will chat about what it’s like to be a woman in a moderate Muslim nation.
Bike toward the holy city of Moulay Brahim and the hidden “Plateau de Kik.” Here, an amazing picnic awaits you with fantastic views on the Lalla Takerkoust Lake.
Explore the intricate city of Marrakech lead by our famous local guide Mohamed Bouskri. We'll have lunch at his place before an amazing last night.
Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel and m’a ssalama in Marrakech before your final departure.
Dar Ahlam, Province de Ouarzazate
Located within the palm groves of Skoura, this renovated and relaxing kasbah features serene guest rooms, a gorgeous turquoise pool and soaring views of the mighty Atlas Mountains. It ranks as perhaps one of the most luxurious oases in our books; in fact, our Regional Expert for Morocco reports that it is the very best he has seen in his 12 years in the country.

A Night in the Desert, Iriqui Lake
Our private Berber Camp in the middle of the desert is not just magical and romantic—it’s also very comfortable. The camp features double and twin private tents furnished with rich carpets, warm blankets and very comfy beds, so you’ll sleep like a Berber and a baby at the same time!
Kasbah Tamadot, Asni
Once owned by an Italian antique collector, this unique mountain retreat is tucked away in the Imlil Valley. Surrounded by the High Atlas Mountains and the Jbel Toubkal, it is surrounded by 20 hectares of beautiful rose gardens, almond groves and fruit trees. The lodge also features an incredible spa. B&R is proud to be the only biking company accepted by the property. View hotel website »
Riad Farnatchi, Marrakech
With only 9 suites, this boutique Riad boasts elaborate Moroccan design and unique works of art. It is renowned as a calm refuge—with all the modern conveniences—from the frenetic pace of the city around it. Craftsmen and local artists worked for three years to give this property all the authenticity and luxury Morocco could offer. Your biggest dilemma will be whether to wander into the souks or lounge poolside with a long cool drink. View hotel website »
Daily biking distances usually vary from 20 to 45 km (12 to 28 mi.) with options on some days as far as 80 km (48 mi.). The terrain is generally flat with a few hills along the way. The difficulty of the ride often depends on which way the wind is blowing. The walking is mostly flat, except for our day in the Atlas Mountains.

“The most memorable? Cars passing as I was cycling up the hill and drivers yelling "Bon Courage!" (good luck); reaching the top of the climb on that last day of cycling to see the magnificent vista below.”
