Next Starting Date
From the dunes in the desert to the epic, snow-capped Atlas and Rif Mountains and the golden beaches of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco has a little bit of everything to reward its curious explorers with magical and unforgettable experiences. Our journey in two-wheels will take us to the vibrant maze of the Medina in Fez, the intriguing spell of Marrakesh, the cosmopolitan glitz of Casablanca, the oasis-like town of Ouarzazate (Hollywood’s destination of choice when it comes to filming classic desert movies) and, last but least, the golden sand dunes of Merzouga, right where the famous Sahara Desert starts - or ends. Our 'Full Moroccan Experience' is a fantastic motorcycle adventure, made even more enriching by the warm and hospitable Arab and Berber people we will meet along our way.

MÁLAGA - TANGIER
Our two-week journey into Morocco starts with a leisure ride through the beautiful 'Costa del Sol' highway out of Málaga to Tarifa, stopping on our way to admire spectacular views of the Strait of Gibraltar. Once in Tarifa, we will board the ferry for the 90-minute crossing to mysterious Tangier, in times past home to shady merchants, spies, and smugglers. Tangier is now one of the most prosperous cities in the country, due to its strategic and ideal geographic location for the commercial maritime traffic between North Africa and Europe.
In the afternoon, we will stroll around the streets of the old Medina, see the famous lighthouse at Cape Spartel or the historic caves of Hercules. A good rest night will get us ready to start exploring Morocco tomorrow!
TANGIER - CASABLANCA
We will leave Tangier on coastal roads to our first stop of the day in Asilah, the 'Pearl of the Atlantic', where we will take a short tour of its small and cozy Medina. Keeping riding south, we will pass through cities such as Larache and Kenitra, two significant centers for Moroccan trade. In Rabat, the political capital of the country, we will stop for lunch and visit the famous Hassan II Mausoleum.
In the afternoon, we move on to Casablanca, Morocco's economic capital. Upon our arrival, we should have enough time to tour the impressive Hassan II Mosque, the second largest in the Islamic world behind Mecca in Saudi Arabia. In the evening, a traditional and delicious dinner will mark the end of our second day on the road.
CASABLANCA - ESSAOUIRA
We continue to ride South to the coastal gem of El Jadida, once an important port for Morocco's maritime trade. Beautiful cliffs and small fishing villages mark the spectacular coastal road to our next stop, Safi, in an area considered to be one of the world's most productive fishing zones. Many of us will be surprised to learn that Morocco is the largest canned sardine exporter in the world and the leading supplier of sardines to the European market.
After lunch in Safi, we stay on idyllic seaside roads to our stop for the night, Essaouira, in time to watch the sun setting at sea, take a walk around the old Medina and enjoy a delicious dinner in this beautiful coastal city.
ESSAOUIRA - AGADIR
Today we will have a short but intense ride on twisty roads over spectacular cliffs. We will cross the Tamri National Park, where we will stop to photograph the fantastic coastal views around Cape Rhir. This is a popular area for the residents of Agadir, offering accessible beaches and easy transportation for weekend and holiday getaways.
We will continue enjoying the road curves until we reach Agadir, the largest seaside resort in Morocco, where an unusually mild year-round climate attracts foreign tourists and many locals as well. The seaside promenade, lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars, will offer us plenty of options for an evening of great food and local drinks.
AGADIR – MARRAKESH
It is time to say goodbye to the Atlantic coast and start our journey inland towards the mountains of the Anti-Atlas. We will head towards Taroudant, in an area rich in sugar, cotton, and rice, and then to one of the most spectacular passes in the whole country, the Tizi-n-Test. This road connects the valley of the Souss River with the Toubkal National Park, with spectacular views and landscapes that we will forever remember as one the highlights of our Moroccan experience.
After the stop for lunch at Tizi-n-Test, we will continue to Asni through the Imlil Valley, enjoying some of the best scenery Morocco has to offer. After checking into our hotel in Marrakesh, we will go for a walk through the world-famous Jemaa el-Fna Square to start our visit to this most extraordinary city.
We will have the whole day to explore the best of Marrakesh, and it will be an intense one! After breakfast, we will leave our hotel on a guided tour of the city, undoubtedly the best way to spend a full day getting to know one of the most sought-after destinations in North Africa. On our itinerary, famous landmarks like the historic Bahia Palace, the Menara Gardens, the spectacular Jemaa El-Fna Square, a cheerful Berber pharmacy, the majestic Koutoubia Mosque, and of course the famous Medina of Marrakech.
The old Medina, rich in colors, sounds, and flavors, is a perfect place to do a little shopping and bring home some souvenirs from our exciting journey into Morocco. In the evening, we will have tasty local specialties in one of the many celebrated local restaurants serving the best of Moroccan cuisine.
MARRAKESH - OUARZAZATE
We leave Marrakesh behind as we cross the Great Atlas mountain range once again, this time through the mythical Tizi-n-Tichka Pass. We will stop at the summit to contemplate a spectacular landscape, and then take a secondary, less-traveled road to Teoulet. Its Kasbah is one of the most beautiful in Morocco., and since it is located off the conventional tourist route, it does not usually have many visitors. Riding on an ancient caravan route between the Draa Valley and sub-Saharan Africa will be another experience not to be forgotten!
After lunch, we will follow the same road to Ait Benhaddou, an ancient Kasbah famous for being a natural scenario for many famous Hollywood movies like Gladiator, Cleopatra, Asterix and Obelix, and Prince of Persia, among others. Several episodes of the popular Game of Thrones TV series were also shot in the old Kasbah. We will be able to walk through its alleys and admire the incredible architecture. Our destination for the day is Ouarzazate, a city that revolves around the film industry. A walk through the town and an excellent local dinner will end another great day!
OUARZAZATE – MERZOUGA
Our route today takes us first to the famous Valle de las Rosas, a valley that runs between the Atlas Mountains and the Sarhro mountain system. We will cross countless towns on our way to the city of Boumalne Dades, where we will take a short detour through a breathtaking road to the Dades Gorges viewpoint. Time for tea on the highest point of the trail, with plenty of opportunities for photos of the fascinating switchbacks below us. Following on, we will have lunch at Todra Gorges, another incredible canyon not to be missed, and then continue to Alnif. The landscape keeps changing and becomes more and more captivating as we enter Berber territory.
The setting sun gives a golden glow to the rocks and the terrain that surrounds us as we arrive at the holy town of Rissani, one of the most important centers for sub-Saharan commerce. From there, we take the road to Merzouga, a city that is a true gateway to the Sahara. The Berber people and a sea of golden dunes will make us realize we are finally in the real desert. A full-featured luxury tent in the sand will be our home for the next two nights: great food, mesmerizing Berber music, and the night sky filled with more stars than you can possibly imagine. Get ready to be thrilled!
We will have a full day for ourselves in the desert! A pre-dawn excursion will be organized for those of us who want to see the sun rising behind the dunes. Next on our list of activities is a 4x4 excursion in the desert. We will visit the natural fossil mines, incredible oases, a museum of extravagant cars belonging to a local Arab sheik, and the little villages of African natives to learn about their culture and traditions. We will also have tea in an authentic nomadic settlement, where daily life is still exactly as it was hundreds of years ago.
After lunch in an oasis in the middle of one of the vast seas of dunes formed by wind-blown sand, we will still have plenty of options to choose from: feel free to ride on rented quads or buggies, get some rest in local cafes and wait until the sun starts to set for a camel ride back to our camp. The dunes will glow golden like nothing you have witnessed before, and you will find yourself hopelessly in love with the desert. Tonight, the stars will look even more mesmerizing, and the sounds and smells of the desert will feel more tantalizing just as well!
MERZOUGA - FEZ
Our route today is certainly the most diverse in terms of scenery. Starting in the desert towards Erfoud, we will continue on the road to reach Er-Rachidia, a military and college city, full of life with a large number of young people on its streets. Moving on into the Ziz Gorges and a river covered entirely by an impressive kilometer-long palm grove, we will follow the route that will take us to Midelt, a small town famous for its large fossil mines. After lunch, we will start crossing the Atlas Mountains. Depending on the time of the year, we may notice the temperature gradually decreasing, and we recommend bringing along a warm jacket or sweater just in case.
The sands of the desert give way now to green cedar forests surrounding us everywhere we look. We will continue our ride to Ifrane for a short rest and some reinvigorating tea. Ifrane, also called the 'Switzerland of Morocco', is known for its alpine-style architecture and nearby ski slopes and forests. A short final sprint for the day will take us to the imperial city of Fez, where a comforting dinner will be our reward from another extraordinary day of riding.
The last rest day on our road trip is an opportunity for us to know Fez, the second-largest city in Morocco, after Casablanca. The Medina of Fez is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is believed to be one of the world's largest urban pedestrian zones. Modern Fez mainly consists of two old medina quarters, 'Fes el Bali' and 'Fes Jdid', and the modern urban area of Ville Nouvelle, constructed during the French colonial era. We will have a full day to explore everything Fez has to show us and then experience some of the most traditional dishes from Northern Morocco in our evening dinner.
FEZ - CHEFCHAOUEN
Today we will leave Fez heading north towards the Rif area via the Ouergha Valley. The road will take us around the Bouhouda swamp, winding its way through the crests of the Riferous mountains and its magnificent views, passing through rural souks (Arab markets, or bazaars) until we reach Ketama.
Arriving in Chefchaouen, we will check into our beautiful hotel and then enjoy the rest of the day getting to know the 'Blue City', as this charming town is also known. The gorgeous blue alleyways and blue-washed buildings will leave a memorable impression as we prepare to leave Morocco the next day. Time to savor more local specialties and to do some last-minute shopping in the leather and weaving workshops lining Chefchaouen's steep cobbled streets.
CHEFCHAOUEN – MÁLAGA
It is time to say goodbye to Morocco and board the ferry back to Spain. The road from Chefchaouen to Tangier, although not a long one, will offer us splendid mountain views, typical of this area of the country. In Tarifa, our port of disembarking, we will make a pause to enjoy a light lunch by the seaside, and then take the 'Costa del Sol' road back to Málaga.
As we ride along the coast, memories of these past days together in an enchanted land will inevitably fill our hearts and make us dream about our next adventure with Hertz Ride. The group's final dinner will be a happy and well-deserved celebration of a most incredible tour!
