Atlas Descent 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 Over the years we've ridden every trail through the Anti Atlas Mountains in order to create the best off road cycling tour. This trip has everything from fast singletrack through palm trees, to ancient hairpinned muleteer's routes and remote, rocky jeep tracks. As well as the amazing trails, there is stunning scenery, fantastic food, great hotels and one of the warmest welcomes in North Africa. You will ride through areas untouched by mass tourism, but also get a chance to interact with the locals and really experience the culture of some of the indigenous Berber people who populate this area.
