Mountain & Desert Tour

Day 3 – (approx. 170km) Fuim Zguid to Oualid Driss
Description:

Morocco 8 day Mountain & Desert - photo6



On leaving our hotel it's 5 km on road to the town of Foum Zguid where we refuel before heading out into the desert. Rocky at first we soon arrive at the dry (we hope) lake bed of Lac Iriki. 40 km of fast riding across the lake brings us to the western side of the Chegaga Dunes.  For those up for it there are also around 40 km of medium sized dunes to be crossed before we arrive at our bivouac in the dunes, where we stop for lunch.

Those not wanting to commit to the dunes at this early stage of the tour (there are plenty more opportunities to dune ride later on) can take a 60 km diversion around the dunes...you will have a 18 km sandy riverbed to negotiate before the lunch stop though.


After lunch there is some fast riding across a plateau and some small dunes to cross before we reach the asphalt at Mhamid. 6 km on road brings us to our 3* hotel, where as always, pool and beers await.
