IMG_2408

NO Tent Needed

A local family or a simple hotel will always be waiting for you for a traditional dinner and accommodation for the night, forget about comfort, but travel light!

A Light Gravel Journey

A trip designed for a balanced dosage of gravel moments, to enjoy the discovery of a millennia-old culture perfectly balancing effort and exploration.

Adventurous And Cheap

The "ring" nature of the journey and basic accommodations allow us to offer an affordable cost, without surcharges for transfers and unnecessary luxury hotels, minimal expense for 10 days of pure adventure!

Fresh All Year Round

With an average altitude of about 1500m and a maximum of 2600m, it's the perfect trip to discover Morocco even during the summer.

Travel In’ Amazigh

A journey into one of the most fascinating cultures on the planet. During 10 days, 8 of which are spent cycling, you will immerse yourself in the heart of the Moroccan Atlas, where the roots of a people who still keep their millennia-old traditions alive reside.
Starting from Lalla Takerkoust, where From0toAtlas is based outside the chaotic Marrakech, in just a few kilometers, we will enter the most unexpected Morocco, one that has little to do with sand and camels. Through verdant valleys, passes over 2000 meters, villages off the tourist trails, breathtaking gorges, plateaus with lunar views, and imposing Kasbahs, you will experience Moroccan hospitality in the most "real" way possible.
Entering remote villages without the noise of an engine and at the perfect speed, that of the bike, you will be the perfect guest to be welcomed with a refreshing Berber tea or a motivating chorus, and it will seem like you have traveled back in time, a time when the sense of community and selfless help were the norm, a time you thought you had forgotten.
In short, the perfect choice for a "light gravel" tour to discover a country just a stone's throw from Europe but still too little known. A journey that will stay with you.
Possibility of bike rental upon request.

How we travel?

All our trips, of all types and difficulties, aim to balance adventure and discovery, turning the bike, hiking boots, paragliding sail, or whatever means we use into an opportunity to experience cultures and natural wonders in an unprecedented and unique way. Physical effort, of all levels, should be an addition, not a limitation.
We at From0toAtlas, thanks to twenty years of experience in travel and sports adventures, are convinced that the best way to connect with a new culture is to show ourselves as "true," even vulnerable, trying to shed the heavy label of "tourists," and what better way to arrive in a village, or a big city, than to enter exhausted but with the sole strength of our legs.
In short, the fatigue printed on our faces opens more doors than any amount of money.
