most spectacular and varied scenery in the south of the country.
We ride through the lush Draa valley following the ancient trade
route to Timbuktu then over the wild Jbel Sarhro plateau for the
long, exhilarating descent to the high plains.
Moving into the High Atlas, we cycle through Morocco's
two finest gorges and travel down the Valley of the thousand Kasbahs
to finish in the Valley of the Roses.
Enjoy a landscape of vivid contrasts; sand; snow
covered mountains; jagged peaks; volcanic pillars; secluded oases;
palm groves; waterfalls and vast canyons opening into lush green

mud-built houses and children tending sheep and goats we are taken
