For the Sporty Types
Every year in April the super-fit can take part in the Marrakech Atlas Etape – a 60km or 140 km cycling event in aid of « Education for All », a Moroccan charity enabling under-privileged girls from rural communities to continue their education after primary school http://www.marrakech-atlas-etape.com/
For the slightly less ambitious, try cycling ‘off-road’. AXS (www.argansports.com) is a Marrakech-based bicycle company offering tours for visitors who are looking for an adrenaline-filled trip. Tours also include the easy, beginner-level ‘Magical Marrakech’ tour, which is an hour and a half cycling past the King’s palace, the Medina and the Jemaa-El-Fna’.
Other sporting activities include golf (there are 7 excellent golf course dotted around Marrakech), horse-back riding, swimming, tennis and trekking in the Atlas Mountains.
Just ask in advance or at the riad if you would like to book any of these activities.
