About the trip
Between the often snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas and the city heat of Marrakech, you can find the small town of Ouirgane nestled in a valley among rolling foothills and located alongside the Nfis river. It is a great base for exploring the valley and the High Atlas and there are plenty of options for bike of any length. Still under-discovered by tourists, it’s a peaceful and tranquil area which boasts some stunning scenery, including the local barrage, and we very much recommend it for a visit off the usual beaten track.
