Ski, snowboard, bodyboard or toboggan down the Grande Dune… Of course, the Grande Dune at Merzouga is not equipped with a ski lift, so you’ll have to climb it on foot or with the help of a camel, and then have fun hurtling down the 160-meter slope! Moto Morocco tours is happy to lend you the equipment normally used for winter sports… More adventurous? It’s also possible to paraglide or kitesurf from the Merzouga dune… unforgettable sensations! Erg Chebbi is also the ideal place for Sahara hikes or trekking on foot, mountain bike or camel, which we will be delighted to organize for you.
