You’ll be picked up from your accommodations in Fez for the 124-mile (220-kilometer) trip to Chefchaouen, a village that’s perched among the peaks of the Rif Mountains. During the drive, enjoy views of the mountain terrain from the comfort of a climate-controlled vehicle, as you pass forested hills, river valleys, and gorges.
Upon arrival at Chefchaouen, you’ll have four hours to explore the compact community at your own pace. Walk the winding streets of the medina, visit the lovely main square, or duck into the 18th-century Kasbah Museum for a glimpse of the town’s past. The Chefchaouen ethnographic museum features a fascinating collection of musical instruments, photos, and antique weapons, and there are plenty of pleasant cafés where you can linger over fresh mint tea.
Following your time in Chefchaouen, begin the return trip to Fez, where the day concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
