Nestled at the feet of the Rif Mountains, the city is named Chefchaouen or “horns,” after the shape of the top of the mountains. 

Picking you up from your accommodations after breakfast, a guide will drive to north to explore an extremely different culture and lifestyle from Fez to the blue city.

You will be able to walk around the city with our guide to explore the white and blue washed walls of the Medina, stopping to take as many Instagram-worthy photos you want. We'll also explore the markets that offer some unique native handicrafts at a much calmer pace than you'll find in Marrakech or Fez.

After having lunch, we'll return to Fez as you enjoy a magnificent view of the Rif Mountains. 

Contact us for more details along with price information.
