Popular ADV Routes
Gorges du Dadès is a great riding destination in Morocco. The road stretches 160 km (100 mi) and connects Ouarzazate, which is in the east, to Tineghir and the Todra Gorge.
The road along the canyon of the Dadès River is called the R704 and is usually regarded as one of top 5 most dangerous roads in the world due to its steep gradient and hairpin turns. A gorge carved by the Dades River separates the Atlas and Anti-Atlas (Lesser Atlas) mountain ranges. More >>
Riding the famous, or as some might say, infamous Tizi-n-Test Road in Morocco will reward you with some of the most dramatic and breathtaking sights the country has to offer, while also providing a suitably interesting and challenging road to ride your adventure bike on. More >>
