Our 1 day MTB trip down the Anougal valley was the best experience we had during our stay in Morocco. Our driver and guide were both very friendly, patient and knowledgeable - real professionals. Our guide Hicham explain everything we asked not only about the area and nature but also about the culture, religion, customs and of course mountain biking techniques. After the pick up at agreed spot we drove to lovely Amizmiz town where we had hearty breakfast with refreshing mint tea.Then we drop up to Toulkine plateaus with breathtaking views and set off to 30 km ride through the Berber villages, green valleys and rocky hills. The cherry on the cake was the delicious lunch at the local family in one of the Berber villages. Our expectations were exceeded by far - 100 % recommended. A big thanks to Maroc Nature again for making this great adventure possible.

The 3 day mountain bike adventure through the Atlas with Mustapha was the highlight of my Morocco trip. My daughter Annie and I booked the trip in mid-December. Maroc put us up at a beautiful hotel (Les Trois Palmiers); Mustapha and Mohammed met us at breakfast and whisked us away to the mountains.

Day 1: we biked along dirt tracks through Berber villages and pine forests along two sides of an Atlas Mountain valley. Our bikes were beautifully maintained and perfect for the terrain. At all times Mohammed was behind us in the vehicle, and Mustapha biked along with us. We stopped for lunch (tagine and mint tea) with a local family. We ended in Amizmiz, and transferred to a beautiful hotel on a lake (Lalla Takerkoust) for the evening.

Day 2. This was a tough day, heading up the Kik plateau (great views of Mount Toubkal), past farms, sheep and small villages. We biked down terraces and down to a village for lunch. Finally, we biked on tarmac up to the Imlil village. Tea and a well-deserved dinner waited for us in a guest house in the mountains of Imlil.

Day 3. Fun day. We started with dramatic views of the Tizi n'Tamatart (2230m high) and then snaked down the valley -- all they way down. What a rush. We had small kids calling out to us as we passed their villages, rivers, orchards, and town. One small dog ran with us for miles. Exhausted, we had a final mint tea and drove back to Marrakech.

Maroc can customize a trip for one day, 2-days, 3-days or more. They have great people, beautiful equipment, and are dedicated to provide a unique, active experience. I highly recommend them to you.

We booked originally booked a one day Enduro day with Maroc Nature. I expected it to be good but not this good!!!! It was so good that we did another ride with them the day after, we can’t stop talking about these rides since we have got back, it was such an experience. As well as the rides themselves being brilliant, the people we met, the food, the views and the whole flow and organisation of the days were perfect. Maroc Nature is a very professionally run organisation.
Hisham was an excellent guide, he collected us from our Riad in the morning and then we drove with Mohammed into the mountains (Mohammed is a very calm driver with nerves of steel on the windy mountain roads!). The Cannondale bikes we used were in as new condition and they set them up to suit us before the start of each ride. They also provided pads and helmets, also in great condition.
I don’t know what to say about the mountains – they are incredible! Morocco is such a beautiful country and these rides really help you to appreciate that, I’m not sure how much time Hisham has to spend exploring to find these routes but I think he must know the mountains better than anyone else in Morocco. We went to some amazingly remote places. Hisham went ahead a lot and stopped to take photos for us which was really nice. On the second day we started the ride at a Berber village where we had some lunch in Said’s house before loading our bikes onto Said’s mule to hike to the start of the route – we loved meeting Said, everyone we met were really welcoming towards us. Both days were planned really well, all our meals were taken care of, water and snacks provided. Thanks so much to Hisham and Mohammed, we are definitely coming back and saving up for next December  We are also telling everyone we know to go and do some rides with you 
