TOUR GRADES

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

AND ENJOY

Whether walking through a sand dune on the Sahara Desert, cycling an incredible path on the Atlas Mountain, or any other type of experience, even the tamest trail can be such a wild adventure when not adapted to our fitness level.
To ensure that you get the most from our tours, we recommend that you have a look at our simple grading system, to give you an idea of the level of fitness and riding/hiking experience required for each tour. These grades have been developed by our team of specialists and are calculated by considering the length, gradient, distance, and technicality of the route involved.

The grading system begins with Cultural and Easy, which represents our easiest tours with short distances and low elevation gain, and goes up to Extreme, the most challenging tours, requiring a substantial amount of fitness and willpower!
