Your chance to
Ride the finest mountain biking trails
At a glance
6 days cycling with 90% vehicle support
Some of the finest mountain biking anywhere in the world
Over the years we've ridden every trail through the Anti Atlas Mountains in order to create the best off road cycling tour. This trip has everything from fast singletrack through palm trees, to ancient hairpinned muleteer’s routes and remote, rocky jeep tracks. As well as the amazing trails, there is stunning scenery, fantastic food, great hotels and one of the warmest welcomes in North Africa. On this tour you will pass through areas untouched by mass tourism, but also get a chance to interact with local people and really experience the culture of some of the indigenous Berber people who populate this area.
