The terrain is mountainous and the scenery inspiring, like falling into an ancient world. Raw mountainsides with their earthy toned villages, dotted with indigo coloured doors and impressive Kasbahs (castle like fortress made of sun baked mud) rise out of vivid green trees. Here we meet with the local Berbers.

Then we head to the last trail of the trip. Almost 30km of downhill singletrack freeride out of the Northern Atlas!
