Outings & surroundings

Fez is strategically located at the edge of the Middle Atlas Mountains, a crossroads of all four corners of Morocco, amidst a wealth of cultural and natural diversity. This is one of the reasons why the founders decided to build Fez in this location in the 9th century. The surrounding countryside represents the rich cultural heritage of this region, including several villages of great interest. Volubilis is the most important Roman site in Morocco. Moulay Idriss is a picturesque town with green roofs overlooking the ruins of Volubilis, founded by Moulay Idriss, a descendant of the Prophet, who brought Islam to Morocco. Sefrou holds some of the most significant remnants of the Jewish culture in Morocco. In Bhalil are amazing troglodytes (cave houses). Nothing is more exceptional than the cedar and oak forests in the regions of Azrou and Ifrane. From Fez it is also possible to visit the thermal springs at Sidi Harazem and Moulay Yacoub.

The Sebou Gorges (32 km)

In the South and east of Sefrou, there are some of the most attractive swaths of the middle Atlas: dense, wooded mountains with great scope for hiking or course driving. Immediately south of the town is the massif du Kadar, which loops round to Imouzzer du kandar. To the east, further ahead, are the Bou Inania Mountains –an exploration of which could be combined by drivers with the Djebel Tazzeka circuit, near Taza. The Sebou Gorge is a spectacular canyon which are just 33 km south-east of Fez. The Gorges of the Sebou offers a fabulous vista of Fez, the Rif, the Middle Atlas and the gorges themselves in the red colored limestone. 
Taza and Gouffre du Friouato
Gouffre du Friouato are these amazing caves located 22 km from Taza and can be reached going up the mountain oasis Ras El-Ma direction Merhraoua. These caves can be seen at a couple of hours trip from Taza and half day trip if you intend to descend all the cave interior which takes about 4 hours.

Imouzzer du kandar 

Imouzzer du kandar, 78 km south of fez, is one road, one square kind of place, where Fassis come up to swim, picnic and spend a few days. The town lies 1350 meters above sea level, and offers cool air and the chance of swimming in the handful of pools in the region. There are a handful of hotels if you like doing the same, and some good restaurants, too: it’s a relaxed place, with a pleasant atmosphere. A small Monday souk is held within the ruined Kasbah and a festival, the fête des pommes, takes place in august, with a number of music and dance events. The souk of Imouzzer du Kandar is clearly of the modest type, reflecting the size of the town. But it does absolutely carry a lot of charm with its simple stalls and a rural color “skala”. The municipal swimming pool, near the center, is open from mid-June to mid-September and filled, like everything here, with natural spa water.  


Ifran is a town and ski resort in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco (population 13,000 in December 2008).  Ifrane is 1665 meters (5,460 ft) in altitude and is part of the Meknès-Tafilalet region. In Tamazight, the regional Berber language, "ifran" means caves. As befits a royal resort, Ifran town is quite impressive in itself-squeaky clean, brightly lit by street lamps and illuminated globes, and with a steady growth of new, costly houses. A walk by the river, below the royal palace, is pleasant, as is the cool summer air.
Azrou, the first real town of the middle Atlas, stands at the major junction of road-north to Meknes and fez, south to Khenifra and Midelt. As might be expected, it is an important market center (the main souk is held on Tuesday), and it’s an important market center (the main souk is held on Tuesday), and it has long held a strategic role in controlling the Berber mountains. Moulay Ismail built a Kasbah here, the remains of which will survive, while more recently the French established the prestigious Collège Berbère-part of their attempt to split the country’s Berbers from the urban Arabs. The most compelling reason for a visit to Azrou is provided by its Tuesday souk which draws Berbers from all the surrounding mountain villages and where you can found vegetable, fruit and carpet stalls.   


Volubilis, or Walili, is an archaeological site in Morocco situated near Meknes between Fez and Rabat. The nearest town is Moulay Idriss. Walili features the best preserved Roman ruins in this part of northern Africa. In 1997 the site was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. It makes for a wonderful place to visit while traveling in Morocco, as it is one of the largest ancient ruins in Africa. The countryside is spectacularly beautiful and it can be seen from all sides of the ruined site. The city sits at an altitude of 1300 feet (400 meters) on a triangular-shaped, rich plain bordered on both sides by two small rivers (Oued Fertassa and Oued Khomane). A visit to Volubilis, the archaeological site, can’t be missed during your trip to Morocco. Volubilis is really worth a visit, especially at sunset, when the shadows of the ruins give to this site a truly fascinating atmosphere. In a place where Latin language survived for centuries, you could admire the “Victory Arch” built in 217 to honor the Emperor Caracalla, the remarkable mosaics of Ephebe’s house and the Capitol towering over an arid plain. In short: Rome in Africa!

The most ancient of the imperial capitals and the most complete medieval city of the Arab world, Fez is a place that stimulates your senses, with haunting and beautiful sounds, infinite visual details and unfiltered odors. More than any other city it seems to exist suspended in time somewhere between the Middle Ages and the modern world. As with other Moroccan cities, it has a French-built Ville Nouvelle but some 200,000 of Fez’s half-million inhabitants continue to live in the extraordinary Medina-city of Fez El-Bali.
