Question asked via PM from hobomillar: "Hope you can help, me and a friend are thinking of a trip to morocco on motorbikes.., but only have a week to play with.. What would be your recommendation as regards to where to get the ferry to? Would you recommend any routes for such a short trip??"
The easiest crossing and normally the cheapest is Algeciras to Tanger Med using Trasmediterranea/Acciona. Check out http://www.aferry.to for prices. Passport control is done on board the ferry, look for a queue and join it. Complete and print out your motorbike temporary import documents before you leave home using the method described at morocco-knowledgebase.net/forum/…
The mistake most people make IMHO is (1) to be over ambitious with distances, (2) travel all their time on main roads, and (3) spend all their time in the cities.
So get the Reise KnowHow map amazon.co.uk/Morocco-Reise-Know-How-Verlag-G… and look for side roads with green (scenic) edging and spend your time in the north of the country visiting places like Chefchaouen, Moulay Idriss, Azrou. You can check out many of the towns at http://looklex.com/morocco/index.htm
When are you travelling, what sort of bikes will you be on, and are you interested in any off-tarmac routes?
