Sleeping in the desert of Morocco, an unforgettable experience

Reading time: 3


Are you ready to enjoy one of the best experiences of your life? Sleeping in the desert is something you will never forget. The stars are so clear that they seem to be at your fingertips. The sunsets and sunrises dye in golden color, a sea of sand that stretches to infinity without interruption. This is part of what you will experience on our Morocco Motorcycle Tour. Do you want to know more?

Few people are lucky enough to live in an area without light pollution and enjoy the grandeur of a starry sky in absolute silence. If you live in a big city you will know what we are talking about. Now imagine yourself lying on the sand and above you, a sea of stars. An indescribable and unforgettable sensation. An experience that you can live in all its intensity when sleeping in the desert of Morocco.

And if the full moon makes its appearance and blurs this wonder, watch how it rises from the horizon of sand while illuminating the dunes is another experience that can only be lived in the desert. 

Even if you are not a photography enthusiast, it will be one of those moments that you will remember with pleasure and will convince you that the trip was worth it. We have designed the Morocco Motorbike Tour so that you can enjoy these experiences, only reserved for those who have the opportunity to sleep in the Sahara desert.

Other pleasures of sleeping in the Sahara desert

A motorcycle tour in Morocco requires getting up early to take advantage of the cooler hours. Sleeping in the Sahara desert gives you the opportunity to see the most fabulous sunrises in the world. After a day on the road, incomparable sunsets will be the perfect setting for a fantastic dinner and sharing the day’s experiences.

Sleeping in the Moroccan desert also has other attractions: have you ever had the opportunity to spend the night in a tent or meet the Berber people? If you have never done so, our route through Morocco will give you this excellent opportunity. 

The Berber people, an ancient nomadic people, occupy a vast territory especially in the High Atlas and Anti Atlas. In addition, they usually take care of the accommodation in the desert and liven up the evenings with traditional music.  

What else does the route offer besides sleeping in the desert? Crossing Morocco from north to south

A good guided route through Morocco should allow you to visit the most touristic cities such as Casablanca, Marrakech or the unforgettable blue city of Chaouen. But also, as we said before, the south of Morocco is the fiefdom of the Berbers, a friendly and hospitable people. 

Our route visits places as touristic as Merzouga, Agoudal, the Dadès Gorge or Ouarzazate. Ouarzazate, is an architectural marvel, the scene of many mythical films and series: The Last Temptation of Christ, Gladiator, Game of Thrones or Kundun. 


Recommendations for sleeping in the desert

In the desert the daytime hours are warm but when night falls, the temperature can drop below 10 degrees. Although the tents are prepared with all the comforts and warm bedding, sleeping in the desert of Morocco requires appropriate clothing to avoid getting cold. This way you will be able to enjoy dinner in the open air or watch the stars comfortably.

Whether you like astronomy or not, take a star identification app on your cell phone that does not require an internet connection. Have fun finding the planets visible that day or identifying the main constellations. 

And don’t forget a small quality camera to carry with you at all times! The route passes through incredible places that will be worth keeping a great memory. 


Driving in Morocco, an experience for adventure lovers

Traveling by motorcycle in the desert is perhaps one of the most tempting experiences for all adventure tourism enthusiasts. However, common sense can hold you back thinking that you are not prepared enough or that it is risky to embark on this trip on your own. 

What if you had the opportunity to make your dream come true by being part of a small group and with the help of an experienced desert guide? And not having to worry about the weight of the luggage on the bike? 

This is what Triumph Adventure Experience Spain offers you in this guided motorcycle tour of Morocco. A tour designed so that your only concern is to drive and enjoy the magnificent landscapes of Morocco.
