Leave the "Blue City" behind and explore the mountains: immerse yourself in Morocco's spectacular natural landscapes on this two-day trek from Chefchaouen to Akchour.
Chefchaouen to Akchour: 2 Day Hike
Day 1: Chefchaouen – Azilane
Having met at 9 am in Place Mohammed V, a square in the heart of the "Blue City of Morocco", we'll leave picturesque Chefchaouen behind and set off on the first day of our trek. The hiking trail will take around seven hours - don't worry, we'll make stops along the way!
The first section of the route, lasting three hours, will take us through the Talassemtane National Park. We'll stop in this designated Biosphere Reserve for a picnic lunch to build up our energy while we admire the magnificent views. After lunch, we'll head back on the route to the final destination of the day. During this second four-hour stretch, we'll pass through the small rural village of Afeska.
Day one will come to an end in Azilane, where we'll indulge in a well-earned dinner before relaxing in the mountain lodge for the night.
Day 2: Azilane – Akchour – Chefchaouen
After a hearty breakfast at the mountain lodge in Azilane, we'll set off on today's five-hour trekking route. The effort will be well worth it as our path leads to the famous God's Bridge: an incredible natural rock bridge towering above our heads in the Talassemtane National Park.
Not far from God's Bridge are the spectacular Akchour Waterfalls, natural pools and cascades whose sparkling emerald green waters are sure to captivate you. The region is also home to an abundance of wildlife and plants that we'll discover along the way.
Having made the most of our time here with a picnic lunch in the area, the trekking route will come to an end at 5:15 pm in the village of Akchour. From here, you'll have to take a taxi back to Chefchaouen. This journey takes 45 minutes and costs around 18 US Dollars (22 Euros) for groups of up to four people.
