Hello adventurers!

Well, it’s great to be out in the world again. It’s been a year since travel restrictions were lifted. We hit the ground running and squeezed 12 tours into 2022. Jo and I will be taking it a little easier this year with some independent travel and other projects before returning to Morocco in September.

The first 20 years… I did my first 4x4 tour of Morocco in 2003, since then, we’ve led and organised tours in Tunisia, Libya, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Spain, Andorra, France, Portugal, Italy and the UK.

Added up the mileages on the various expedition vehicles that we’ve used, (OK, some of that would be the odd supermarket run but the vast majority were tour miles). The total? More than 460,000 miles. All the way to the moon and halfway back or 18 times around the world.

We’ve organised mostly 4x4 adventures but also motorcycle off-road tours, classic car and banger rallies. Lost count of the number of tours, but it must be in the hundreds. Most of all, we’ve had the great privilege of travelling with a whole host of adventurers, many are now great friends who we’re looking forward to travelling with again soon.

Let’s see where 2023 takes us…

In this newsletter you’ll find information about an extra Morocco tour that we’re running. And there’s a bunch of pix from our last trips to give you a flavour of what’s to come.

We’re advertising a superb Land Rover Defender Expedition vehicle. Fully equipped and ready to go!

NEW MOROCCO TOUR, 11-25 October 2023

Due to exceptional demand, our current tours of Morocco are now full, so we now have an extra tour in October, and we'll be driving some NEW ROUTES.

Our itinerary includes new pistes through the Middle Atlas Mountains and the Cedar Forests heading to the magnificent Cascades d'Ouzoud waterfalls (as seen in the new Defender adverts).

New tracks and trails through the High Atlas and Jebel Sahro mountains.

We've got more new pistes south of Zagora to pick up the Paris-Dakar rally piste.

Then we're off to the desert for five days, wild camping under Saharan skies as we make our way to the coast, where we'll be driving along the Atlantic coast on the spectacular PlageBlanche.

Then we'll be exploring some new tracks in the Anti-Atlas Mountains and the High Atlas before heading to Marrakech and making our way back north.

The cost of the tour is £1145 per person based on two people sharing a vehicle. This includes:

• 15 day 4x4 tour of Morocco
• Return fast ferry Spain-Morocco
• Full border assistance
• All accommodation fees in Morocco including campsites and two nights half board in a desert hotel
• Atlas Overland Guide and support vehicle on call 24/7

We’re agents for Brittany ferries so can organise your UK-Spain crossing if required.
