Ifrane is a town in Morocco’s Middle Atlas Mountains. The capital of Ifrane Province in the region of Fès-Meknès, Ifrane is located at an elevation of 1,665 m. In Tamazight, the regional Berber language, “ifran” means caves. It’s known for its alpine-style architecture and nearby ski slopes and forests. A stone statue of a lion near leafy Parc la Prairie is a well-known landmark.
Just outside town, Ain Vittel is a spring with several waterfalls. To the west, Ifrane National Park, with its Atlas cedar forests, is home to rare Barbary macaques.
