Enjoy a great taste of adventure by quad bike for those seeking an exciting and fun activity close to Marrakech. This half day quad-biking excursion takes you into rural Morocco to reveal beautiful lunar and contrasting landscapes of palm groves and Marrakech Agafay Desert. This trip is operated by a specialist and very experienced local company.
After a thorough safety and equipment briefing you head off following trails through stone desert, villages, crossing the wadi to explore the vast but diminishing remnants of the Marrakech Agafay Desert. And of course, great views of the High Atlas, the roof of North Africa. Detailed knowledge of the area, top-notch in-house maintenance and the complete reliability of equipment means this family-friendly half day excursion can also be tailored, on demand, to suit you and your parties tastes for exploration and adventure, all within 45 minutes' from Marrakech.
Time permitting, the guides will be happy to show experienced riders their favourite tracks & spots. They’ll even take you to the top of a hill for great views! On the way, a stop is planned in a little village to stretch your legs, sip hot tea and enjoy local hospitality. Discover the millennial mud walls and clever hammams still in use today and how the aridity of the land unravels into a rich tapestry of tastes, flavours and myriad shades of red as the light changes across the landscape.
