Day 2 : Starting the expedition … 190 km
Start on a nice canal track before getting to the foothills of the High Atlas, first climb, quite moderate with beautiful panoramas, then the mountains get higher and rugged, the trail goes from hills to valleys and vegetation gets denser…. Lovely
groves give way to some pine forests and then to holm oaks; the climb follows a beautiful ridge overlooking a lake, then we dive down into the woods before exciting onto a vast tableland … Descent on small sinuous paths to dinner at our hotel.
Day 3 : Into the High Atlas … 210 km
After some kilometres across cultivated land and through olive groves the trail stretches from hills to valleys and we discover almond groves and wheat fields. The trail gets larger and easier to ride, then more sinuous and more vertiginous the higher we climb up to the first pass at 1900 m. Then we drive down into the next valley through several u-bends before riding along a lovely mountain river.
Further down we cross today’s first wadi, and three more are to follow. Arrival in a lovely green valley for lunch. The afternoon starts with a pass at 2600 m, and afterwards a long ridge takes us to a high tableland, the track is more technical and demands more vigilance. A succession of valleys takes us to tonight’s hotel and dinner.
Day 4 : The return … 200 km
The morning starts with beautiful, large and fast tracks and ends in a region of bends. Lunch around a tajine next to a beautiful lake. In the afternoon we enjoy sort of rally tracks before our arrival at the base. Transport to our hotel in the centre of Marrakech where dinner is waiting for us.
