TOUR SUMMARY

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

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

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

Over the 11 days motorcycle holiday we ride 9 days in Morocco and enjoy an exciting combination of mountain & desert trails - 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.

We ride on old Berber trails and sections of the Paris-Dakar Rally Trails to the Draa Valley following some of the ancient trading routes from Tombuktu. Our route out of Africa takes us over one of the highest passes in the High Atlas (and least known by tourists) via the Dades gorge.

Our  tour has been fully researched and personally ridden by John & Brigitte - as with all our tours, it is run by Wildcat Adventures and led by John & Brigitte. We do not subcontract any of our tours!
