Short MTB Adventure in the Atlas Mountains Itinerary

Day 1 Transfer from Marrakech to Imlil and Ride to Imi Oughlad

half to the small village of Imlil, nestled high up in the Atlas Mountains.

Your expert local guide is your key to unlocking the region’s fantastic riding potential. The
ride starts with a climb to get the legs going. After a pause for mint tea at the top, it’s onto
some great singletrack, passing through local villages. A pleasant riverbed makes for a great lunch spot before the dusty Moroccan single track continues. A last short climb gets you to the final descent of the day heading into the village of Imi Oughelad where you will find your gite for the night.
