Imperial Sweetness

The generosity of nature

The Middle Atlas Mountains are spoiled by nature. Go deep in this backcountry traversed by streams and discover another facet of the land around Fez and Meknes.

Near Sefrou, there is a refreshing waterfall that deserves a look: the Aggai wadi follows its course until it begins racing down the pitched terrain in a series of small, charming waterfalls. The picturesque site is easily accessible for everyone, making it a perfect outing for families.

In Moulay Yacoub, you can enjoy the water in an entirely different way, because the main attraction is a hot water spring. There is a hot spring resort on the mountainside that is guaranteed to enhance your sense of well-being.

Last, but not least, is the well-known Ifrane. This is real mountain country, for the town known as "Little Switzerland" sits at an altitude of over 5,400 feet. Cedar trees dominate the surrounding areas, where skiing, of course, is a popular activity. However, the many lakes and streams that run through the region also afford excellent opportunities to cast a line in the hopes of landing a big fish.

The backcountry around Fez and Meknes allows you to step back from the cities and take advantage of the great outdoors by hiking, skiing, fishing or simply relaxing.
