Other Need-to-Know Information about Morocco ATV
Morocco is far from completely barren, however, and tourism is on the rise. The major cities, like Marrakech, Casablanca, and Fez offer plenty to see and do. Here you can peruse the souks (markets) for colorful, fragrant spices and a number of other goods; you can marvel at the intricate and gorgeous architecture of the countless mosques; or experience a traditional hammer steam bath house. Other can’t-be-missed destinations include the “blue city” of Chefchaouen, where every building is bathed in white and blue paint, the beautiful beaches of Agadir or Eassaouira, and the traditional berber town of Imouzzer, which sits high up in the rugged Atlas mountains.
Getting to Morocco is no problem either, as there are numerous intercontinental flights from both Europe and the U.S. to Casablanca and Marrakech. Taking a ferry over from Spain or France is also an option, and one that puts an interesting twist on your trip! Once you’ve arrived, take some time before your Morocco ATV tours to enjoy the local cuisine, like couscous, tagine, bastella, and plenty of glasses of tea. The country is still relatively inexpensive and your money will stretch a little further. Be careful, though, to not lose that money to pickpockets, fake tour guides, and other scammers. While Morocco is generally safe, and violent crime is very low, these hustlers can be quite common.
What Planet Ride offers for quad adventures in Morocco
Our Morocco quad tours offer the opportunity to explore a completely foreign landscape - the Sahara desert! The rocky terrain, sea of sand, and brilliant blue skies invoke a real sense of remoteness and freedom. Heading into this lunar landscape on a quad is a thrilling way to travel and experience this unforgettable place. One aspect that sets our Morocco ATV tours apart, is the feeling of being a modern-day desert nomad. Disappearing into the desert for days at a time and spending the night bivouacked in tent encampments under the stars, creates an unforgettable experience! There is no need to worry either, as the expert local guides we feature provide nothing but the best support for the entirety of your group’s trip.
An example of one of Planet Ride’s more popular Morocco quad biking adventures is an eight-day trek that sets out from Marrakech. After a 4x4 jaunt to Erfoud, you’ll take command of your quad and hit the sand! The next stop is Merzouga, but along the way you’ll cross countless dunes, see gorgeous oases, and pass by several nomadic camps. From there, it’s on to Ouzina and Elmaherch. Towards the end of the trip, your ride will take you between palm groves and mountain passes before joining the ancient road to Ksar Tissargate, which is a centuries old fortified village! The last day of riding for this particular Morocco quad biking tour will let you enjoy lunch and marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou, before cruising back to Marrakech.
