6 Days Trip – 4 Cycling / Level Intermediate / Period: September – Mai, Assistance: Minibus
In 2013, we noticed that many dirt tracks were paved in the Atlas Maritime north of Agadir. It was a large government program to open up remote and isolate mountain valleys in 2014, we made a recce trip to outline a new road cycling itinerary in the area. But it was not until spring 2015 that we did finalize the stages for a brand new tour!
Today we can say that we have spotted a true paradise for road bikers!
Ingredients: Beautiful newly paved roads with very little traffic, stunning valleys with traditional villages, impressive canyons and lush oasis … To sum up, a stunning area to ride in winter, enough to make you forget the roads of southern Europe!

After a good breakfast, we take our bikes and ride is full on a false flat before attacking the first climb of the day up to the pass at 1500m. From the pass, we start a superb descent between fields of almond terraces overlooking a small gorge on our left. We continue the descent to the bottom of the river for another tough 2km climb that will take us to the beautiful village of Iguer. From the village, we cycle through beautiful forests of Barbary Thuya with long mountainside traverse. As we reach the beautiful palm grove of Assif, we will begin the "challenging" climb of the day which well test our fitness, a 14 km road snaking up to the pas!
