TOUR SUMMARY - New Route for 2018 / 2019

MOROCCO - A destination for the Adventure Motorcycle rider. A country of amazing contrasts and landscapes. This is a proper tour of Morocco and its highlights!

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

Over the 17 days motorcycling holiday we ride 10 days in Morocco. We ride the best motorcycle roads and take time to explore some of the hidden gems our unique tour has to offer.

We enter North Africa at Tangier on Morocco's Mediterranean coastline and ride through the Middle Atlas, and High Atlas mountains and south through the famous Todra Gorge  to the Sahara desert.

Our route out of Africa takes us west through the Draa Valley to the Anti Atlas Mountains following some of the ancient trading routes from Marrakech to Timbuktu. We pass through Berber villages and witness a way of life unchanged for centuries as we ride over the most spectacular High Atlas pass to Marrakech and to Essaouira on the coast then North 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. They both know Morocco like the back of their hand! We do not subcontract any of our tours!
