4 Days Tangier and the North

Tangier is located at the furthest point west of Morocco, in northern Africa and only 14 km from Spain and is the main entrance of travelers from Europe. Discover Morocco’s northern cities on this quick 4-day itinerary starting in Tangier. You’ll explore medieval medinas of historic Meknes and Fes, roam blue-painted streets of picturesque Chefchaouen, and discover ancient ruins of the fallen Roman Empire in Volubilis.


Day 1

Upon arriving at the port of Tangier, you will be welcomed by your driver. From Tangier, we will drive through the Rif  mountains and Tetouen city to enjoy the views of the beautiful mountains until we arrive in Chefchaouen, the Blue City of Morocco, just south of the Mediterranean.  

Explore the white and blue washed walls of the Medina  with its winding lanes and narrow alleys which are home to numerous souks offering cuisine and artisan works, such as woolen items, intricate embroidery, and goats cheese; all native to the North and not found anywhere else in Morocco.   Relax in the square, visit a local farm or visit the Place Mohammed Park which has wonderful views of the Rif Mountains.

Overnight in Chefchaouen. 


Day 2

After breakfast depart for Fes. 

A private tour guide will help you to explore Fes, the most ancient and holy of the Imperial cities.  Your cultural and historic tour will take you through the 2000 year old living medina; a labyrinth of narrow lanes alive with markets and souks, craftsmen, donkeys and mules transporting their loads. 

Visit the Attarine and Bou Inania Medersas (Islamic universities), the Nejjarine fountain, the Moulay Idriss Mausoleum, and the Karaouine Mosque. 

Finish your tour with a visit to Fes Jdid, and the revered Merenid Tombs for a spectacular panoramic view of Fes. 

Overnight in Fes. 


Day 3

After breakfast our authentic journey will start with a scenic drive that will take us from high in the Rif Mountains through the fertile agricultural hills to the Roman Ruins at Volubilis, an open air museum.

Volubilis is a relaxed way of envisaging an important part of Moroccan history.

We will stop for lunch near Volubilis after which we will be on our way to Meknes, the fourth of Morocco’s imperial cities and the 17th century heritage.

Here you will visit the medina which is surrounded by a triple thickness of 40 km long walls which preserves one of the most beautiful gates in Morocco; the Royal Stables of the Alaouite Sultan Moulay Ismail, and the Jewish Quarter.

Overnight Meknes.
