Great event prepared by R3 – Roadbook Rally Raid and MACTT just one month after the wild fires burned a huge part of the forest. We were presented with 400 km of very technical tracks including some scary down hills and difficult navigation. In the end it paid off for the team Horizon Adventures, as …
Two of us from the UK just completed Horizon Adventures’ Magic Sahara Tour. It was everything an adventure tour should be but from experience often isn’t (I have done about 10 tours around Africa and Europe). Firstly Morocco is unbeatable for Offroad riding, then there’s the bikes: KTM 450s all well prepared. Then there’s the use of the best Garmin GPS devices with the tracks all entered so it’s hard to get lost if the group widens out due to having riders of varying experience. Then most importantly Pedro, co-owner of Horizon and our guide, was the best of hosts. A top rider able to show you how to ride better, a tireless worker on the bikes and the organisation of the tour, and an overall nice guy who is a pleasure to be with. Don’t underestimate how important this can be over a few hard days of riding as it often spoils an otherwise great tour. Everything was made easy for us with transfers, hotels, meals, snacks, fuel, drinking water all included and only beer/drinks down to us to find. We were lucky enough to have a good bunch of fellow riders too. Though of varying levels of experience everyone knuckled down without complaint and just got on with enjoying some of the best and most varied riding you can find anywhere in the world (mountain passes, dry river beds, canyons, rocky climbs and of course amazing sand dunes). The sense of achievement at the end and the improvement in our riding won’t be forgotten.

HORIZON ADVENTURES was founded in March 2015 after six years organizing guided offroad motorbike tours in Alentejo, Portugal. It all started back in 2008. By then, it was just friends finding nice offroad tracks to go from Évora to the Atlantic coast, using a gps for the first time. The passion evolved in such a …
