Your chance to
Perfect winter cycling destination
At a glance
7 nights at 2-4 star hotels, including 1 night restored kasbah
Enjoy fantastic off-road riding through beautiful scenery
Get away from the cold, wet British winter and ride past ancient kasbahs, through deep sandstone gorges and over high mountain passes. Designed to be a little less demanding than our Atlas Descent trip, this ride is an ideal first mountain bike holiday. There is still plenty of adventure to be had in this spectacular desert region, including the challenge of the mighty Bab n’Ali climb, where your reward for reaching the top of the climb is stunning views of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. We end the week in Marrakech, one of the most amazing cities in Africa.
