Chefchaouen day trip will start when Fes Authentic Tours knowledgeable, English speaking driver will collect you from your accommodation after an early breakfast for the pleasant and interesting journey to the Rif Mountains in the north of Morocco so that you may discover the unmatched splendour of the little town of Chefchaouen, the renowned "Blue City" of Morocco. En route, you will pass through the wide, verdant valleys, steep sided gorges and most beautiful forests that lead to this stunning city.
Take you time exploring the relaxing, blue and white painted alleys and streets of Chefchaouen town that was established as a kasbah, or walled castle, by Moulay Ali ben Moussa, way back in 1471. The kasbah may still be seen today and possesses a more modern and rather pretty garden as well. Exploring the pale turquoise passageways, the hot Moroccan sun bounces off the buildings creating the sensational feeling that one is somehow moving under a shallow tropical ocean.
Chefchaouen souks here abound with authentic, skillfully wrought local products, particularly woollen goods for which the region is justly noted, and unique patterns and styles; a wide selection of clothing, hand-crafted blankets in many colours and designs and wide, broad-brimmed hats, embroidered with brightly-coloured thread. In the centre of Chefchaouen, you will discover Chefchaouen town square, encircled with cafes and restaurants, in which you may choose to sample the flavoursome local cheese, made from goat's milk. Here you can catch your breath, take the weight of your feet for a while and breathe in the pleasant, friendly atmosphere of this beautiful place.
Afterwards, you can view the marvelous panorama of the Rif Mountains from the park at Place Mohammed and visit the local Grande Mosque, constructed in the 15th century.
Chefchaouen day trip finishes, as the sun is going down, you will be escorted to your hotel or riad back in Fes.
