the seven kasbahs trail



Massage with a view

For this week-long Morocco trip, Beyond Biking offers seven handpicked lodgings of exceptional quality all in tremendous locations. After a thrilling day of cycling, you’ll be able to relax in comfort while enjoying some breathtaking views. And if hours of pedal pushing has left you with aching legs, we have just the thing for you: daily sports massages to help you destress and soothe your tired muscles.

Each kasbah holds its own unique charm, but spectacular views unites them all. At 1800 metres above sea-level, Kasbah Tigmi N’Oufela rooftop terrace offers amazing mountain views. Cliff-side kasbah Tamaloute (or Kasbah Chems) is next on the list, with sweeping views of the Valley of the Roses. In N’Kob, you’ll stay at Kasbah Baha Baha, beloved for its 360°view of the oasis and palm groves.

Every kasbah on the Beyond Biking itinerary is family-run and traditionally designed and decorated, so a warm welcome is guaranteed. As we move on to the Dadès Valley, the riverside Kasbah Amazigh will blow your mind. The owner is a cultural activist and will be very happy to share his knowledge with you. You may even be treated to a live music performance featuring the owner and his family. In the Drâa Valley, Kasbah Oulad Othmane will be your home for a night. A restored 17th century fort, enjoy a tour of the fort with the owner, after which you can feast on a cozy rooftop dinner.

Some of our kasbahs have charming outdoor swimming pools, traditional hammams and beautifully tendered gardens. You will be in the lap of luxury in Agdz at Kasbah Azul. An oasis in a oasis: there is no noise, just the shimmer of palm trees in the wind. You will enjoy the same silence in Kasbah Aït Ben Moro, a beautiful old castle set in the heart of Skoura’s palm grove.

In Marrakesh, we’ve shortlisted a couple of enchanting riads, complete with spas. All are located in the Medina and all offer a interior courtyard, traditional Moroccon design, a swimming pool and roof terrace with great views of the Atlas Mountains.

*Please note, the hotel/tour pricing may change depending on availability at the time of booking but will be of the same standard as the original offering.
