MOTORCYCLE TOUR - MOROCCO - FROM THE ATLAS TO THE ATLANTIC
An unusual journey that, starting from Marrakech, will take us through the desert and mountains to reach the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean.

We will cross the desert of the Agafay, desert of rocky dunes that a few kilometers from Marrakech offers the possibility of trying off-road driving and experiencing the emptiness and the silence that only the desert can offer.
From Lake Ouirgane we will continue to the Tizi n'Test pass at 2100 meters. on the High Atlas and we will reach the marvelous fortified city of Taroudant, also called the "Little Marrakech".
From here we will arrive on the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean and, after having covered a beautiful stretch in offroad, we will settle in Fort Bou Jerif where we will spend two nights in an old fort of the Foreign Legion.
