Tour Overview

Formed by the Draa River as it flows south to the Sahara, the Draa Valley is a long, green oasis in a dry, rocky landscape. Known as "the date basket of Morocco", this fertile corridor is home to many date palms, orchards and irrigated fields. The gateway to the valley is Agdz, which itself boasts a vast palmerie and a surprising number of ancient but well-preserved kasbahs. Discover the valley by biking through this beautiful verdant land.

Day 1: Airport — Marrakech

Meet by myself ( Abderrahim or Lahcen ) on your arrival in Morocco at Marrakech airport and transfer to evening accommodation. If you brought your bike with you, we will take you to our shop to mount it and keep your box until the end of trip. And then travel through the millennia-old city wall into Medina and the pulsating heart of Marrakech. The tranquillity we meet inside the Riad contrast with the alarm outside- this really is an oasis of peace, and in general Marrakech will surprise you with the lack of hustle-bustle (within the old town at least). We have a short briefing before taking a short trip through the Souks (market streets), cruising between the snake charmers and fortune-tellers in the unforgettable Djemma el Fna and eating dinner together at a restaurant that lets the atmosphere of North Africa sweep us away. Accommodation: Hotel Mogador or similar .
