Bring your own bike or use one of the DT125 or TT600's which can be rented through Adrar Aventure. You will push your limits between the Sand Dunes of the Sahara and the Mule Tracks of the High Atlas as you fine tune your skills through this forever changing land.
The donkey tracks which crisis cross the high passes and valleys are the haven for any serious off-road biker, with the terrain changing from harsh mountains and forests to desert and sand , you will find something for all levels. The only petrol driven traffic on these donkey tracks which wind their way into the mountains for hundreds of km will be the scooter. This gives the tracks a great wheel line, which will at times make you feel as if you are riding a roller coaster.Watch out for the hard working donkeys, mules and camels which will be sharing the route with you.
