Excursions and tours in Fez- travel in Morocco

For those with a reasonable amount of time in Fez, day trips are a great way to take a break from the Medina. The usual destinations are Meknes and Volubilis. However today we would like to suggest another town in the Middle Atlas. We will take you via Imouzzer to the resort and university town of Ifrane. Ifrane is a little like a European alpine village and the architecture which will remind you of Switzerland. We will have full day to walk around Ifrane before we head down to the Cedar forest to visit apes’ habitats before we drive back to Fez.
