Desert Tour

Day 3 – (approx. 250km Leave hotel after breakfast and depart f) or Erfoud
You will leave the hotel after breakfast and depart for Merzouga and the red dunes. The first 30 kilometers of the ride will be heading south from Dades, across a fast, flat plateau that will lead you into the Jbel Saghro mountain range.


The range of mountains is arguably the most beautiful in Morocco. Very The Djebel Saghro Mountain range. Originally the eastern end of the Anti Atlas but now separated by the Draa Valley.  Arguably Morocco's most beautiful mountains with spectacular rock formations combined with an austere almost lunar landscape.twisting and well-prepared tracks with stunning views await to be ridden. 

Thereafter, 100 kilometers after the days start, you will stop for a coffee break on the main road, joining Alnif in the south with Tinerhir in the north.


After coffee, it will be a further 60 kilometers until lunch at an auberge or Moroccan inn close to the desert village of Mcissi. You will refuel in Mcissi then it will be off again through the Moroccan desert on some fast and sinuous trails.


 


The Rheris River (also spelt Gheris) is one of Morocco's largest rivers. Rising in the eastern High Atlas it flows mainly southwards and disappears near Algeria into the sands of the Sahara.Crossing the River Rheris, sometimes with some water and mud in it, we then carry on until we reach our local auberge located at the foot of the Cathedral dunes at Erg Chebbi.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


Sitting by the pool of our desert auberge - Hotel Les Portes du Desert. Catch a cool beer and relax by the pool as the sun descends, then a pleasant meal awaits the group in the evening. Go to bed anticipating riding in the sand and conquering the Cathedral dunes the following morning.
