Itinerary:

After breakfast at 08:00 AM, we start our 1 Day trip to Sefrou from Fez. Sefrou is located at the edge of the Middle Atlas mountain range and is 30 kilometers (19 mi) southeast of Fez. The river Oued Aggai runs through the city, and about 1.5 kilometers (0.93 mi) west of Sefrou are the Cascades, a small beautiful waterfall. Wadi Aggai also takes part in irrigation for the area. During our visit, we can see the Kef el-Moumen caves, containing ancient tombs, one of which is claimed to be the tomb of Daniel. There is also a spring near Sefrou called Lalla Rekia, which is purported to cure insanity.

Sefrou is known for its Sefrou Cherry Festival, which is UNESCO-endorsed and is held annually every June. This festival, originally launched back in 1920, consists of a beauty contest in which Moroccan women would apply for the prestigious title of Miss Cherry. The festival lasts for three days and includes folk music, Moroccan traditional cuisine, fantasia performances, and sporting events.

The traditional town has a medina and two mosques, and every Thursday is market day. In the afternoon we drive back to Fez, where our 1 Day trip to Sefrou from Fez ends.
