  • All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 5 dinners are included. Moroccan food is excellent, though not particularly varied. Breakfasts usually consist of bread and croissants with a selection of jams, tea, coffee and freshly squeezed orange. Meals eaten out are reasonably priced – a lamb or chicken tagine (a local speciality) will cost about £5. In main towns it is possible to find very good French and Moroccan restaurants where a meal and French wine will cost anything from £15 upwards. Local beers, wines and soft drinks are available at very reasonable prices, but you can pay UK prices or more for imported alcohol. Your leader can help recommend restaurants for the two evenings where dinner is not included.

    A hilly ride out of Agadir and through the Paradise Valley before a final climb up to Imouzzer (1000m).

    After breakfast we ride directly from our hotel in Agadir, the first 10km of the days ride is on slightly busier roads as we make our way out of the town. Today’s ride is probably the most picturesque of the week, the Paradise Valley is an extremely fertile area and our climb winds its way through dense palm trees all the way up to Imouzzer and an open plateau at 1000m. Originally the home of the Ida Outanane Berber tribe, Imouzzer retains a strong cultural identity and is a facinating place to explore after todays ride. * * Hotel Les Cascades or similar – Immouzer
