Hike and bike your way off Morocco’s beaten path

Travellers might be drawn to Morocco for its markets and food, but now, with the launch of a new active trip, Intrepid trip leader 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 the adventurous and active traveller looking to explore beyond the bus windows. If you’re after a more intimate, immersive and open-air journey through Morocco’s diverse landscape, Intrepid’s new Morocco: Hike & Bike trip could be exactly what you need in 2023.

On this trip, travellers walk, cycle and even ride camels through beautiful, lesser-known parts of the country, from the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara Desert through to the oases and towering gorges dotting the Atlas Mountains. 

Intrepid trip leader Fayssal Mallouki, who hails from M’rirt city in Khenifra province, is excited to be leading this trip from April 2023. Fayssal has been working with Intrepid since 2018, and loves to welcome 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 years old, his brother introduced him to cycling, and he has since spent plenty of time exploring the natural world of Morocco on two wheels. As his admiration for the great outdoors grew, so did his love for trekking, which he started doing in 2015. This new trip lets him combine these two modes of travel, all while sharing his extensive local knowledge and appreciation of his home country.
