Fez | The Wilds of Ifrane

Spend the morning baking up a storm with a dada (traditional family cook), who teaches you how to make traditional Moroccan bread and cookies. The best part: enjoying your creations during lunch. In the afternoon, depart for an adventure to the natural, wilder landscapes beyond Fez. Your first stop is in the rocky hilltop village of Bhalil, which its people have carved into the mountain, and which looks a lot like Swiss cheese. Explore this unusual village and experience it like a local when you sip Moroccan tea in a local house. Later, drive to the high alpine city of Ifrane, filled with cedar and oak forests, and home to the world’s largest population of Barbary macaques. Discover its national park with a local guide in search of these funny creatures. In addition to the macaques, the park is home to hundreds of animals and birds as well as the oldest tree in Morocco’s Middle Atlas, the 130-foot Gouraud’s Cedar. Later, explore the beautiful lakes that surround the city, choosing to relax on a pedal boat or take a tour on horseback.

Learn how students studied the Koran in the old days when you visit the Ben Youssef Madrasa, a magnificent structure with student cells and a central courtyard. Built around 1570, this Koranic madrasa (school) is the biggest in all of the Maghreb (west). Next, have some fun with costumes when you visit the Ali Baba Cave shop. Dress up in fancy Moroccan attire fit for royalty, then set out to explore the medina while a photographer captures your glamorous adventure. Stop in a beautiful riad to enjoy traditional pancakes and listen to a storyteller, who weaves Moroccan tales of kings and queens. You may also skip the storytelling to explore more of the red city on an exciting motorcycle sidecar ride. Later, visit Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakech’s main square, which is alive with the action of energy of vendors, fire-eaters, snake charmers and street musicians.
