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

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.

This was the Canadian Rockies Cycling trip in the year 2000. It was a while ago so i can only remember a few details, but it was a fabulous cycling trip where I not only learned so much more about biking (it was my first ever cycling trip and I just started training for it 2-3 months before), had wonderful and super fun guides, magnificent views, fun places to stay, great food, and I met my husband on that trip! I have a friend who I met on another trip and recommended this one to her. She went on he exact same Backroads trip a few years after us and met HER husband on it! Both of us still married!

Itinerary

Day 1: Pedal through an exotic landscape more accustomed to goats and donkeys than cyclists.

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.

Day 5-6: Explore Marrakech's bustling medina on a guided walk and discover the architectural wonders of Dar Si Said Palace on a private tour  Leave the comfort of our desert oasis to bike or hike in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains on the outskirts of Marrakech.
