Day 1 : Marrakesh – Boumalne Dadès (approx. 450 km)
You will receive your BMW bikes early in the morning before starting our journey towards Bin El Ouidane. We will head towards the High Atlas on normal roads to warm up so you can get used to your bike as well as local driving habits before tackling the winding mountain roads that will provide an excellent insight to the great riding Morocco has to offer. We will visit the scenic waterfalls of Ouzoud, where we will have some time to do a short walk around, pick up our bikes and head to Boumalne Dadès– crossing the OFF Road via Ait Bougmaz with its cool view, seen by few people. Our route will take us through the hight atlas heading to the Todra Valley to ride beneath huge cliffs. We know you will be impressed. Our stop for the night will be in a nice hotel or Riad on the border of the Dades valley where you can relax or discuss the first day at the bar.
Day 2: Boumalne Dadès – Merzouga (approx220km)
We will start our day by climbing the most photographed hairpins in Morocco in the Dadès Valley. A relatively short bike ride will take us to our lodging for this evening to the Sahara Desert. We will stop at a great hotel in Merzouga where we leave the bikes (optional) and climb aboard a 4×4 to journey on to our camp in the dunes of the Sahara. The images here are like from a film or a book – they will not disappoint. Enjoy the sunset from the dunes before dinner and then experience a spectacular star filled desert sky. *Note: In case of a rare sand storm, we would have to remain at the hotel for safety and comfort
Day 3: Merzouga (activity)
Our wake up call is early on this day since we’ll climb the dunes to admire a stunning sunrise before an early breakfast.
We will return to the hotel, pick up our bikes and head to the Rock of the Mummy for some off-road riding and to admire the view of the desert from the top of the rocks – a cool view, seen by few people. Our route will take us through deserted landscapes back to our camp in the dunes of the Sahara. Enjoy the sunset from the dunes before dinner and then experience a spectacular star filled desert sky – PARTY TIME!
Day 4: Merzouga– Ouarzazate (approx. 300 km)
Our wake up call is early today as we’ll climb the dunes to admire a stunning sunrise before an early breakfast.

Ouarzazate is a famous Dakar town. Many rally enthusiasts would stop here and visit a bivouac, where all the action can be seen late into the evening. The locals still hope the Dakar may return to North Africa one day. Today you will have the opportunity to visit the Kasbah of Ouarzazate and wander around the many local souvenir shops – you’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time. Excellent local dishes will be served for dinner.
Day 5: Ouarzazate – Marrkesh (approx. 220 km)
