A small town in the Rif Mountains is lately getting so popular. Chefchaouen is famous with its “blue” color in town. It’s a nice experience to walk around the medina to be a part of the fantasy world. Let’s get on a Chefchaouen Day Trip from Fez with us!
1) Departure from Fez to Chefchaouen
We’ll pick you up from a hotel or riad in Fez in the morning.
2) Arrive in Chefchaouen
It takes about 3 or 4 hours to Chefchaouen. During the drive, you can enjoy nice view of Rif Mountains.
3) Walk around the town
You’ll find a kasbah in the center of the town, built by Moulay Ismail of Meknes. Chefchaouen was once a fortress to fight against Europeans.
4) Shop in medina
Medina is rather small and easy to walk around. Restaurants and cafes are also painted in blue and nice to sit back watching town and people.
It’a good idea to go to the terrace of a restaurant in the kasbah square. You can enjoy the view of the town. This is a tajine, covered with French fries 🙂
6) Outside of medina
Medina is surrounded by stone walls and it has several gates. Its medieval atmosphere is something to see.
Outside of medina, it’s also blue. Many beautiful houses, worth walking around.
8) Back to Fez
Late in the afternoon, we will get back to Fez and drop you off at your hotel/riad. Easy way to enjoy charming Chefchaouen!
For price and bookings:
Your photos convey the town’s ambience so well! Did you know that they need to repaint the village every couple of months since the blue paint doesn’t stay for very long? It is a lot of work, but the blue paint keeps the insects away and the travellers returning, so it’s great for everyone!
