Our Fes –Chefchaouen Short Tour takes you from Fes to Chefchaouen, nestled high in the Rif Mountains, just inland from Tangier and Tetouan. A popular destination, Chefchaouen is famous for its vivid blue rinsed houses and buildings. Winding lanes and narrow alleys are home to numerous souks offering cuisine and artisan works, such as woollen items, intricate embroidery, and goats cheese; all native to the North and not found anywhere else in Morocco.
Depart from Fes for Chefchaouen, taking a leisurely journey through the Ouezzane, a town lying on the southern edge of the Rif Mountains. Well known as a holy city because of its zawiya (saint’s mausoleum), as well as being an important location for Jewish people who make an annual pilgrimage to visit the tomb of Rabbi Amrane ben Diwan. The journey is filled with rolling and fertile hillsides, lush with olive groves. Arrive in Chefchaouen, settle into your accommodation, and relax after your drive. Overnight in Chefchaouen.
