Itinerary

As well as stopping at many other interesting places on route, we will be heading south following some of the ancient trading routes to the edge of the Sahara to visit Erg Chebbi, One of Morocco’s large areas of dunes, to spend two nights in a luxury Kasbah with a swimming pool. Here we have a day off to relax or explore the dunes on Quad bikes, or 4×4 Buggies, or take a camel ride into the dunes.

When we reach the High Altas mountains we will have two days to explore. There will be a choice of routes either sealed roads or unsealed for the adventure riders. After spending a night in a traditional Kasbah hotel we’ll continue our journey north over the high Atlas mountains following the famous Dades gorge or Todra gorge.

If starting from the Uk the Spanish part of our tour plays an important part. Experiencing some of Spain’s famous hospitality, weather, food, and culture. Plus riding many of Spain’s stunning roads including the Sierra de Gredos mountain range and the Cantabrian mountains and Picos. The Spanish part of the route is self-guided, your hotels are pre-booked in advance and we also provide you with our route to follow.

This was a great trip and provided a real insight into Morocco. We elected to ride our own bikes down from the Ferry at Santander which added an extra element to the trip and gave a real flavour for rural Spain

Jay clearly loves Morocco and the overnight stops and routes were all well planned and provided a real feel for the country from the cities at the North to the more remote Gorges, High Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert towards the South. The local people were friendly, and the food was good. Most importantly though the riding and scenery was amazing, as Morocco has so much to offer.

The big non bike event was an hours quad biking in the sand dunes of the Sahara which was brilliant fun and is strongly recommended.

We had a brilliant trip and all thanks to Jay and Ray (Group leader) for making it such an eventful and enjoyable trip

Book and go with Overland Motorcycle Tours would be my advice. I have done loads of touring with mates and just tried to find places and campsites to stay in along the way. This tour took all the hassle and stress out of the trip and although we got treated to some nice, clean modern hotels i much preferred the traditional Moroccan kasbahs/hotels but that’s just my preference. I started my trip from Plymouth and rode through Spain to Tarifa and also from Tarifa to Santander once the Morocco part had been done. The Spanish routes were self guided and the scenery and routes were spectacular. I thought Jay and Raz were excellent in guiding us and they themselves were also part of the experience.

Highly recommended. Good value tour of Morocco. I’ve done a lot and am confident in solo motorcycle travel (on-road). I hadn’t realised quite how much difference it would make to have someone else taking care of all the route planning and accommodation – I easily did more than twice the riding than if I’d had to manage all the logistics myself. Great routes, great accommodation, good variety of terrain and places to stay. Advance communication was fantastic, clear and responsive. Communication on the tour wasn’t always so clear, it was never a big problem, but I think that’s the only thing that could be improved a bit. Jay arranged bike hire for me from Malaga airport which was easy and problem free. From the description I thought there would be a little more off-tarmac than there was, but the roads were very mixed and I was happy with overall riding experience. I hired an Enfield Himalayan, as did one other, and we both thought we were on exactly the right bikes for Morocco – fun, confidence inspiring, and we got to explore what the bikes could do. There were others on much bigger bikes, some of whom seemed to be struggling a bit, and who as far as I could see mostly didn’t get to use the immense power of the bigger bikes. Final tip, pack light, one set of kit for riding including wet weather options (luckily not needed), one set of quick dry off bike clothes and some washing liquid, I washed something each evening, always more or less dry by the time we set off.

Extremely enjoyable trip, from Malaga to Merzouga on the edge of the Sahara and back. Winding tarmac roads that seem to never end, sandy gravel tracks on the edge of red sand dunes and mountain rocky trails with cliff like edges, its simply hard to get better! Traditional tagine meals where delicious and the hotels were a great experience of raw, comfy and wonderful. The local people were very friendly and accommodating throughout the Morocco. Jay and Raz ( Organiser and Guide) took great care of all our needs and any issues or concerns our group had were soon sorted out “Thanks Lads” .
The bike I hired was the business, it was light and very capable for all terrains ( New honda Transalp). It was also great meet new people and have lots of fun while doing so.
