Itinerary:

After breakfast at 08:00, we start our 1 Day trip to Azrou from Fez. The market town of Azrou is located at a strategic crossroads of the N13 and N8 roads towards the northern end of the Middle Atlas. The N13 road connects Azrou to Meknes in the northwest and Midelt in the southeast. The National Route N8 comes from Fez in the northeast and continues to Khenifra and then Marrakech in the southwest. Azrou is at an altitude of 1250 m and is surrounded by mountains covered with evergreen holm oak and cedar. The Cèdre Gouraud Forest is located to the southeast, where one of the sub-populations of the Barbary macaque, Macaca Sylvanus (called magots) was found. In addition to its rich biodiversity symbolized by the famous cedar forest, there are butterflies that are unique in the world. The surroundings of Azrou are a center of attraction for the residents, hikers, and picnickers of the large neighboring towns. These surroundings are also home to the ‘Cedre Gouraud’ or ‘Grand Cedar’, a famous tourist attraction. This place is also famous due to the macaque apes that live in the area and are drawn by tourist activity. Moreover, the Azrou forest provides excellent hiking and exercising environment and also holds several summer camps for children. Azrou urban construction is in the European style (red tile roofs).

The region is also known for its cherry trees, apple trees, fish farms, and the abandoned sanatorium in the surrounding metropolitan area of Ben Smim. In the afternoon we drive back to Fez, where our 1 Day trip to Azrou from Fez ends.
