Travel in the Colors of Morocco. 7-day Private Motorcycle Tour
You will discover the colors of Morocco on this unique 7-day circuit tour by going far away from the touristic tumult. Moroccans believe that blue is the color of infinity, escape and the protection from the evil eye. All shades of blue exist in Morocco, from the sea and the sky to the rock of Tafraroute. The red color comes in numerous shades, from landscapes of canyons resembling the Far West to the hollows of wadis. The most beautiful cedar forests in the country and the palm groves that stretch along fertile valleys and oases represent the shades of green. Then, the white color is given by the intense sunlight that floods the landscape. Ocher is the color of a medina, the land of the south and the powerful mountain ranges that form the different chains of the Atlas and Marrakesh.
Day 1. Marrakesh - Tarroudant, 260 km. On the first day, you will be headed towards Toubkal. The road will take you into the valleys that are still forgotten and bordered by beautiful mountains. You will cross the Toubkal National Park, the last refuge for mouflons. The highlight of the day will be the climb of the Tizi n'Test pass to the height of 2,200 meters. After you marvel at the breathtaking view and have a meal on site, you will descend into the valley that leads to Tarroudant. It was the stage city and a setting for the film ‘Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’, and its wall and massive wooden doors will welcome you on your first evening in a four-star Art Deco-style inn.
