Itineraries

What we present here are examples of tried and tested routes, which, over time, we have improved. It is these same charming routes which encouraged us to set up in this region. We have really fallen in love with this place and we hope to share our passion with you. Included here are examples of two particular routes, lasting 5 and 7 days respectively. We naturally adapt our efforts to your available time frame, taking into account that an organised tour lasts a minimum of 5 days for a team of at least 7 people. If you are simply passing through the region and you have no trip planned, or if you are travelling alone or with a group, we also organise tailor-made excursions which vary from a 1 hour initiation to a half-day or 3 day expedition. Meeting point - our site in Tafoghalt !

Aouam / Gefaït

Terrain conditions : rocky, damp, slippery, sandy in the Oued provinces, crossing of long, magnificent rivers.
A magnificent day’s riding with a delightful stop-off at the HASSAN II Dam. Our journey then towards Gefaït, where we will spend the night near the beautiful waterfalls in this oasis of calm and tranquility in the middle of the desert. Its beauty is simply outstanding ! You will be amazed at the many natural springs you come across throughout the course of your journey. Why not get off your motorbike and take a closer look at the surrounding splendour ? A wealth of natural beauty awaits you, such as turtles and all sorts of brightly-coloured tropical fish. Why not have a swim ? Take the plunge and get closer to nature. We like to think of this place as a little piece of paradise !

Jour 5

Gefaït / Cascade de Oued el Hay

Terrain conditions : thorny, changeable, rocky, sandy and obviously wet when crossing rivers.
Whilst this is the most challenging stage, it is also the one where the scenery is at its most breathtaking.

Jour 6

Jerada / Tafoghalt

Terrain conditions : fast and rocky at the start and finishing in the forests of the Beni-Snassen mountains. Quite sandy.
Tafoghalt is the last leg of our trip which is just as impressive as the previous junctures. Once we return the motorbikes and accompanying equipment, we will go back to Saïdia to finish the day in celebratory style or for those who are simply too tired to party, a relaxing evening back in the tranquil surroundings of Raid Oriental headquarters is alternatively on offer.

Jour 7

Excursion to markets in Berkane and Saïdia with the opportunity to buy some gifts and souvenirs before heading back to the airport or ferry ports with countless memories of a fantastic trip.
