Day 2 : Beginning of the expedition … 175 km

Breakfast and briefing on riding in the sand (theory and applied). After crossing a region of small dunes, the trail goes South … Sandy in the beginning, the trail gets harsher next to wadis, and then suddenly it’s just a white powder … the locals call it “fech fech” ! Colour variations on golden sand and black stone hills, in the distance the horizon blurs the mountains, the trail follows a chain of dunes, crosses a small dry lake, then we arrive at the first oasis. In the afternoon we ride on a beautifully subtle and fast track in magnificent surroundings, you’ve indeed reached the gates into the Sahara! Arrival at tonight’s hotel and dinner.

Day 3 : Distant horizons … 211 km

Right at the beginning, the trail seems to roll away in the distance, the horizon is empty; straight and fast, the trail demands full attention for out of nowhere elevations appear under your wheels. The second part of the trip will be more sinuous on rocky trails with many ups and downs. Then a little bit of vegetation, we cross a beautiful palm tree grove, and again those hills of black rocks typical for Southern Morocco; the trail grows softer as we descent on a great plain. The first dunes, sand all around. Arrival at the camp in front of the high dunes of Erg Chegaga. Dinner and night under the stars.

Day 4 : Desert and mountains … 227 km

Sand as far as you can see and some small stretches of dunes before the trail turns North. The track is fast and the elevations grow, some small villages and cultivated areas lead to a beautiful pass through a rocky canyon…. Again a vast plain and some grey and white dunes along a wadi. Arrival in a beautiful palm tree grove and at tonight’s hotel.

Day 5 : Wadis and white dunes … 221 km

Cap East, the canyon trails are sinuous and hilly, then a vast chain of dunes blocks the way, we cross a wadi, then large trails get around the numerous massifs of black rocks to take us north of Erg Chebby which we circle on a beautiful wadi trail. Return to our base camp. End of expedition, dinner and night at the hotel.
