Fantastic 10-day Road Cycling Trip
I have just finished a 10 day ride through the Atlas Mountains with 12 strong Canadian riders. This is the best organized trip we have ever taken. Think of that, we have traveled all over the globe and I am saying that.
The planning and organization by Hassan and El Mustapha were perfect. They answered every question, no matter how small and silly.
We were each met separately at the airport on our varied arrivals and taken to a nice hotel two blocks from the bike shop. We then either assembled our bikes or rented beautiful Cannondale carbon fibre.
Mustapha met us at the hotel the first evening, explained the ride, answered our questions and put us at ease.
Early the next morning a beautiful new van arrived at the hotel with 14 bikes on top. Jamal, our great driver, drove us out of town (I have always had to cycle out of town) and drove us to a quite starting point.
We cycled each day up to 100km and 2000m altitude. If anyone was sick the van was there.
EXTRA: every day our chef (yes, our chef), Kalib, drove ahead in another car and prepared a fantastic lunch consisting of Moroccan salads, bread, meats, cheese, fruits, etc. I have never had this before. Wonderful. Every day. On the last day on the beach we had BBQ dorado, sardines, etc.
Jamal and Kalib made our experience so enjoyable. But the the key to the whole trip was our fearless leader, El Mustapha. THE MAN!
Mustapha is less than half my age, but he exhibits a unique blend of interest, knowledge, experience, confidence, empathy and ability. He taught me so much about his country, is customs, history, religion, food, infrastructure, economy, music.... The list goes on. He was always there, whether chasing down our strongest, rider who had gone the wrong way, or nursing the weakest rider up a tough hill. Mustapha, I can never thank you enough.
I am writing this review, not to try to sell this trip, but to try to impress upon anyone how is thinking of biking in Morocco that you will be missing something very special if you do not take advantage of it.
(By the way, I almost forgot, the cycling is spectacular.)
Amazing Mountain Bike Trip In Morocco
Did this Mountain bike tour in Morocco in March with my boyfriend. All the initial information was very thorough and detailed which was reassuring, however the early booking and email contact itself was a bit hit and miss with them slow to reply to emails & contact. That said I had read the reviews and hoped Trip Advisor wouldn't let us down, particularly as we were sending the payment direct to a foreign bank account. Anyway from the second we were greeted at the airport we couldn't have asked for a better service. Our guide, trainee guide and driver were all excellent, professional and very friendly & they couldn't do enough to help, yet unlike some tours it always felt very relaxed and it didn't feel to regimented.
The route choice and accommodation was excellent and the local food prepared for us each day was always appreciated, good and polished off quickly. As for the riding, the scenery was spectacular and diverse and it was really great to get away from it all. I've done a number of biking holidays and enjoy travelling to experience different cultures & landscapes, this is the first time I really felt I've been able to combine the two so easily. I could wrote loads more, all positive, I feel they haven't left anything to chance and it really is a first class set up from a local company, let's just say I can't recommend them highly enough and if the trip sounds like your kind of thing I'm sure you won't regret using them. I'm now seriously tempted to go back and to do a road biking trip with them. Nb we brought our own bikes, but saw the bike hire fleet at the end, very very nice bikes, great size range and if you hire at least you won't have to dismantle & clean your own bike after to get the Saharan sand out of every sprocket and bearing.

Mountain Biking Trip To Atlas Mountains
Five of us in our fifties booked a fantastic trip for 7 days through the Atlas Mountains last week. The hospitality, knowledge on Morocco, bike coaching and inspiration for those hills from Mustapha was top notch, and the company provided excellent organization and assistance throughout the whole trip. Really recommend these guys if you are planning a Mountain bike in Morocco or Road Biking trip. Bikes were all brand new well spec’d Cannondales all supplied from a well stocked bike shop.
Morocco In Style
Most people recall the CSN song « Marrakesh Express » when they think of Morocco. For me, it is Jackson Browne’s « Something Fine. » I have wanted to see Morocco since first hearing that song in 1972.
The lyrics to the Jackson Browne song include « Now if you see Morocco I know you’ll go in style. » Because the four of us of were fortunate enough to choose Maroc Nature (thanks, Diane!), we definitely saw Morocco in style.
The truth is that I was somewhat apprehensive of the trip. I am more risk-adverse than I was in 1972. Some of my acquaintances tried to dissuade me. The public health nurse warned us to be careful about the food and water. Etc…Read more
Best Road Bike Trip Ever
Maroc Nature set out a fantastic road bike holiday for us. Our group of 12 friends did the Atlas to the Atlantic tour (sportive+ version) – with 700km in 6 days, during which we crossed amazing landscapes and saw a great part of the country. The ascends and descends were challenging and exciting. The accommodations and food was superb, as well as the on-road assistance. The minivans were always at our service with food, water, extra clothes and spare materials – much like we were some pro team. Morocco is a highly recommendable road bike location and Maroc Nature offers great value for money. Special thanks to Mustafa, who was a great guide.
The Only Mountain Biking Company You Need!
Wow did we get lucky! We found this company on the Web and booked at the very last minute for an Atlas Mountains mountain bike ride. We were picked up early and driven to the mountains where we mounted state of the art (I cannot stress how great the rental bikes were: 29er carbon fiber Cannondales with full suspension and hydraulic brakes, tuned to the max with no gear slipping) bikes. Our guide, Redouan hails from the mountains and knows the area like the back of his hand. We rode up some painstaking and long climbs, but the downhills were exhilarating and fast. The trip lasted most of the day and was worth every minute.
If you’re a thrill seeker or avid mountain biker, this is the right company to contact. No cutting corners here and an experience that’s hard to top.
