Hike and cycle your way off the beaten track of Morocco | Intrepid travel blog

Travelers may be drawn to Morocco for its markets and food, but now, with the launch of a new active trip, Intrepid tour guide Fayssal Mallouki is excited to showcase the country’s more adventurous side.

With their dynamic mix of culture, cuisine and architecture, Morocco’s cities – from Marrakech to Fez to Casablanca – have long been a travel favourite.

But beyond the cities’ bustling medinas (old towns) and newer layers of modernity, Morocco has plenty to offer adventurous and active traveler looking to explore beyond the bus windows. If you’re looking for a more intimate, immersive and open-air journey through Morocco’s diverse landscape, Intrepid’s new Morocco: Hiking and cycling travel could be exactly what you need in 2023.

On this tour, travelers walk, bike and even ride camels through beautiful, lesser-known parts of the country, from the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara Desert to the oases and towering canyons that surround the Atlas Mountains.

Intrepid tour guide Fayssal Mallouki, who hails from M’rirt town in Khenifra province, is excited to lead this tour from April 2023. Fayssal has been working with Intrepid since 2018 and loves welcoming visitors to his country. “I’m a very social and adventurous person and I love meeting people from different places and nationalities,” he says.

When Fayssal was 14, his brother introduced him to cycling and he has since spent plenty of time exploring Morocco’s natural world on two wheels. As his admiration for nature grew, so did his love for trekking, which he began doing in 2015. This new trip lets him combine these two forms of travel, all while sharing his extensive local knowledge and appreciation of his homeland.
