Geographical information :
Morocco offers an infinite variety of mountains and territories. Mountains, coastal areas, deserts – each region has its own charm and its unique natural beauty. More than two thirds of the Moroccan territory are covered by mountains attaining considerable height. Some peaks are higher than 4000 m. There are four main mountain chains, and Morocco is the only country in the Maghreb with the huge chain of the Atlas : the Medium Atlas, the High Atlas and the Anti Atlas where again we discover a variety of different landscapes.
The Medium Atlas consists of two parts with very different landscapes. In the East there are steep massifs with peaks over 3100 m. It often snows heavily there. Towards the West, the mountains are less steep and easier to access and you’ll find some small plateaus. In the South, the chain of the Medium Atlas boards with the High Atlas. It’s in this majestic chain that crosses the country from East to West that the Toubkal peaks at 4167 m.
In the Southern part of the country and next to the Algerian border, there is the vastest plain of stones and rocks and sand in the Moroccan interior. Some sand dunes can attain 200 m.
Weather information about Morocco:
Morocco is a country in the subtropical region of North West Africa. The climate varies depending on the different parts. Thus the coastal regions have a moderate climate whereas in the South and East of the country the climate is that of a desert. In the North, the climate is mediterranean, in the West it’s oceanic, in the interior it’s continental and in the South it’s saharean.
Our motorcycle tours have been conceived in accordance with the seasons in order to make the most of each regional specificity and for even more comfort and security.
Given its geographical situation and its latitude extension, Morocco has a certain bioclimatic diversity. Protected by two stable tropical air cells (anticyclones of the Azores and of the Sahara), Morocco enjoys beautiful dry weather throughout the majority of the year, interrupted by torrid invasions of the Chergi (East wind). In winter, the downturn of the anticyclones leaves room for polar air drives which tend to bring snow even down to the Anti Atlas above 1500 m.
