THE OURIGANE VALLEY BIKING TOUR

Level: Intermediate/Advanced

day biking Ouirgane valleyThis is a full day tour of the beautiful Ouirgane Valley in the high Atlas Mountains. We want to share this secluded pocket of paradise through our two-wheeled friend the bike! This peaceful valley is surrounded by timeless Berber villages where you can see the pleasures of a simpler life where the philosophy of life is more or less extinct in the western world. Stand for just a minute contemplating the view in any direction and you will start to absorb a sense of nature’s peacefulness surrounding you. This tour will take you down the road (or off road) less traveled in the serene Ouirgane Valley of Asni. The tour ascends 7km uphill towards a small hidden village where a friendly smiling local Berber meets us. We have some delicious treats that are enjoyed while overlooking the amazing lake of Asni Ouirgane with magnificent views over mount Toubkal and the mountains. After some rest and relaxation, we descend to the gorgeous plateau that sits protected on all sides by rich red earth gorges. We continue along the terrain and road with a magnificent sensory overload of nature’s beauty. You will experience the foothills of the majestic high Atlas Mountains, blue babbling streams, fragrant pine forests and untouched salt mines. Finish with a scrumptious Berber lunch of Moroccan classics.

Price : groupe 3 – 5 participants 90€, 6 participants and more 70 € per/p.

 

THE ASNI VALLEY BIKING TOUR

Level: Intermediate/Advanced

morocco mountain bikingThe Asni Tour is an off-road journey deep into the Atlas Mountains.  Athletically, this is one of our more difficult tours, but intermediate mountain riders who are in good shape would be equipped to handle the tour if they are up for a bit of a challenge.  Riders will travel through quaint stone villages, beautiful orchards, and winding mountain paths with incredible vistas in every direction.  If you are seeking an adventure down the road less traveled (or the road less tourist-ed), this is the option for you.

Price : groupe 3 – 5 participants 90€, 6 participants and more 70 € per/p.
