From 7 to 19 November, 2016
and from November 21 to December 3, 2016
Two goals were set in compiling this route: to enjoy the cruising on a motorbike through the winding roads with incredible scenery, and to explore real Morocco, far from what classic tourist routes offer.
Almost all motocross takes place on the paved road and does not require Off-Road driving skills, but it is required to be able to drive the motorcycle of Trail category and to be skilled in maneuvering. The planned route is not for beginners as the main group will be moving at a good pace, and perhaps we might have to cross the river, where the water level can cover a third part of the wheel.
But for those customers who want to make more relaxed trip, there will be the second guide on a motorcycle, who will lead the group on simple alternative routes. Thus, this option is also suitable for those who want to make motorcycle tour with a companion.
