- Difficulty Level
Level 1: Occasional
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Level 2: Recreational
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Level 3: Enthusiast
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Level 4: Avid
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Level 5: Expert
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
North Africa's Vibrant Land
The heart of Morocco is off the beaten path – and we’ve weaved together breathtaking walks that lead right to it. Hike along the Plateau du Kik and drink in the views of the High Atlas Mountains. Sip mint tea in Berber villages at the foot of Jbel Toubkal. Stroll the fragrant Valley of Roses. And put your feet up at exquisite hotels – just in case the heart of Morocco is hiding out by the pool.

Day by Day
One of Morocco's premier guides takes us on a tour of Marrakech, including stops at Jemaa el-Fna Square and the gardens of Jacques Majorelle. After, we sit down to dinner at our guide's private riad.
Hike along the Plateau du Kik, with incredible views of the High Atlas Mountains. After a picnic lunch, spend the afternoon taking advantage of the Kasbah Tamadot's pool and spa.
We hike to remote Berber villages at the base of Jbel Toubkal (the highest peak in North Africa) and stop by our local guide's home for tea. Back at our kasbah, head to the spa for an argan oil massage or a hammam (steam bath).
Follow a centuries-old trade route to a picnic with a stunning view over Kasbah Tamedakhte. Later, we settle in at the luxurious Dar Ahlam before a delicious dinner in an extra-special location!
Walk amid the arid landscapes of Sidi Flah toward the Dades River where we stop for a midday refreshment. This afternoon, explore the oasis of Skoura on foot, observing the day-to-day life in an oasis and the kasbah ruins.
Pass by fruit orchards and row upon row of Damask rose bushes as we explore the fragrant Valley of Roses. We have lunch nearby before heading back to Dar Ahlam where a memorable evening awaits.
You’ll be driven to the Ouarzazate Airport today in time to check in for your flight. So long!
Stroll between souks.
La Mamounia, Marrakech
Renovated by the French interior designer Jacques Garcia, La Mamounia offers everything you'd expect from the lap of luxury. The pool and spa are out of this world and the location is unsurpassed. The leafy 18th-century park surrounding the property was created for a local prince, Mamoun, whose name inspired the title of the hotel.
Dar Ahlam, Palmeraie de Skoura
Located within the palm groves of Skoura, this relaxing kasbah features serene guest rooms, a gorgeous turquoise pool and soaring views of the mighty Atlas Mountains. Our Regional Expert for Morocco reports that the property is possibly the best she's seen in Morocco.
Kasbah Tamadot, Asni
Once owned by an Italian antique collector, this unique mountain retreat is tucked away in the midst of the Imlil Valley. Surrounded by the High Atlas Mountains, rose gardens, almond groves and fruit trees, B&R is proud to be the only biking company accepted at this impressive property.
We really enjoyed the extra touch of having local guides as we traversed the Atlas Mountains. Not only did we get great information from them, but it felt a lot less touristy with them by our sides. We had an incredible experience with B&R and will definitely use them again!— Meredith Nastasi
