Scents of the Orient

Look up: in Morocco, the fireworks set the tone! From the Anti-Atlas region to the shores of the Atlantic, between shadows and light—all is colourful enchantment. As you cycle along, a veritable multicolour ribbon will unspool before you eyes: azure blue skies, sparkling white historic towns, pink granite mineral valleys, blazing ochre kasbahs, emerald green palm stands. But this dazzlingly exotic festival of Berber culture has even more colours to reveal! Like those of the lively souks, where the many scents of the Orient complement the display! Morocco: bicycle tourism at its most colourful!
