Overview

Highlights

  • Pedal through an exotic landscape more accustomed to goats and donkeys than cyclists
  • Marrakech's D'jemâa el Fna, a marketplace brimming with snake charmers, soothsayers, herbalists and musicians
  • Hike to a remote Berber village in the Atlas Mountains to see traditional life
  • Twilight camel ride on Essaouira's beach
  • Luxuriate at Heure Bleue Palais with spectacular ocean views

Short Description

This trip is exotic and exciting—kind of like riding a camel. You'll savor tagines and be mesmerized by Berber music. Hike to a rustic village in the Atlas Mountains. Spin past olive groves to the sea. And yes, ride a camel on the dunes. Perhaps you've traveled with us before. But come to Morocco and your non-camel vacations just won't compare.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

A local expert introduces us to the 16th-century hamlet of Tamesloht and its zaouia (holy site)   Stroll through the rose gardens or take a dip in the pool at our mountain hideaway.

Day 2: In the High Atlas Mountains, hike to a village accessible only by foot  and experience traditional life   Share mint tea, fresh bread and olive oil with a welcoming Berber family   Trek through the verdant Imlil Valley, surrounded by rugged peaks Enjoy a lively performance of singing, drumming and dancing before dining on Moroccan specialties.

Day 3: The luxurious Heure Bleue Palais with spectacular ocean views ,

Goats climbing trees? Look for them in the argan trees as you ride through an undulating terrain past sun-kissed olive groves toward the Atlantic , Explore the narrow winding streets of Essaouira, an artsy whitewashed port town and World Heritage site with delightful cafés, galleries and shops.

Day 4: Camel ride through coastal dunes

Spin to the sleepy surfing village of Moulay Bouzerqtoune, where dramatic hills tumble to the coast   Wash away your cares in a traditional hammam  Cinnamon, turmeric, cumin and anise dance on your tongue during a lavish Moroccan dinner.

This was our third Backroads trip. It was a 10 day bike trip on the south island of New Zealand. Amazing! Very well organized! Great guides! All the details are carefully taken care of! Even when the unexpected happened (an earthquake!), our guides had a bus replace the train trip that was cancelled (due to damage to the railroad tracks) and it was done quickly. I would recommend Backroads to all my active friends :)

I've taken two Backroads camping trips with my teenage son. It's our summer bonding time and has proved to be a better experience than I could have imagined. Highly recommended. Everything is done for you except riding the bikes! We've been to the San Juan Islands and Yellowstone/Tetons. This year, hopefully Alaska!

I recently had the most amazing experience on the Backroads Singles-Solos Wine Country to San Francisco Biking trip. I'm not a biker but everyone was supportive of each other regardless of experience level. The routes took us through some of the most beautiful roads in the Bay Area. My favorite part was the food as there were freshly-prepared meals three times a day. A+.
