Fes to Middle Atlas Excursion
To reach Ifrane, cross the small town of Immouzer Kandar busy summer for its more temperate climate than that of Fez. Then we made a detour to the amazing Lake Daiet Aoua: you can admire the surrounding hills is reflected in its waters, or riders who take it for a playground.
Arrived in Ifrane, one is surprised by the unusual appearance of this city. With its sloping roofs, chimneys capped with huge stork nests, its abundant flower beds, its chestnut trees the city looks like a small corner of Europe. The road continues to the ski resorts and Jebel Michlifen Habre.
Then down to Azrou, we made a stop at the foot of Cedar Goureau. Here you can see sometimes some of the maggots that live in this forest. Finally, after admiring the green roofs of the central square of Azrou, the rock (in Berber Azrou) the work of craftsmen, it's back to Fez.
This walk can take half a day or slightly more depending on time spent admiring the variety of landscapes: forests of oaks, cedars, cultivated fields among the stones, and Orchards...
