IMPERIAL CITIES FROM MARRAKECH
5 days / 4 nights
Cascada de Ouzoud
Day 1: Marrakech – Ouzoud Waterfalls – Beni Mellal
Pick up at the riad / hotel where you stay at 8am. We will head northeast until we reach the impressive Ouzoud Waterfalls. These waterfalls are the highest (110m high) and considered the most beautiful in the country. Ouzoud is a Berber word that means ‘olive’, that is due to the olive trees that are close to this waterfall.
After witnessing this wonder that nature provides us, we will arrive at the city of Beni Mellal, this city is said to be one of the oldest villages in North Africa where we will spend the night.
Day 2: Beni Mellal – Azrou – Ifran – Fez
The second day, after breakfast, we will continue our journey in the direction of Fez through the mountains of the Middle Atlas, passing through the towns of Ifran and Azrou. Ifran is located at an altitude of 1,713m, which has a cold climate, so the architecture of the city is a great contrast for this country, being more typical of the center. Moroccan families usually climb to enjoy their ski slopes. Azrou, on the other hand, is known for rug crafts.
During the journey we will also pass through the forest of the cedars where you can enjoy seeing the Berber monkeys or monkeys of Gibraltar.
Night in a riad / hotel in Fez. Free dinner
