Mountain biking to South of Morocco and Atlas Mountains from Marrakesh 8 Days
Formed by the Draa River as it flows south to the Sahara, the Draa Valley is a long, green oasis in a dry, rocky landscape. Known as “the date basket of Morocco”, this fertile corridor is home to many date palms, orchards and irrigated fields. The gateway to the valley is Agdz, which itself boasts a vast palmerie and a surprising number of ancient but well-preserved kasbahs. Discover the valley by biking through this beautiful verdant land.
