Early in the morning, we start our hike in the Talassemtane National Park for about 4 hours. Along the rocky path on Tissouka mountain, we have a wide view over the city of Chefchaouen and the foothills of the Oued Laou valley with its agriculturally cultivated areas. On the way, we see traditional mountain villages of the Rif. In Zaouiya Habtenne, our walk ends at Talassemtane Guesthouse, where we will have lunch. In the afternoon, the guide will take us through the village and we observe the daily life in the village. All meals and accommodation overnight at Talassemtane Guesthouse.
After breakfast, we will walk through the park to Jbel Lakrra, the highest peak in the area with an altitude of 2159 m. The route takes us through unique geological formations, such as the caves Barod and el Mae. In this area, there are also many macaque monkeys. We have a picnic on the way. After about 7 hours we will be picked up by a vehicle and returned to the village of Zaouiya Habtenne where we eat and stay again at the Talassemtane Guesthouse.
After breakfast, we drive about an hour in a village that is known for the pottery by Berber women. Aicha, an old woman who is keen to explain about their traditional pottery to visitors, demonstrates how she makes handicrafts made of clay. We have lunch with her family. In the afternoon, we return to Zaouiya Habtenne. Dinner and overnight accommodation here.
We check out after breakfast from the Talassemtane Guesthouse, and walk for about 6 hours, deeper into the Rif Mountains, until we reach the farmhouse of a Berber family. We have a picnic on the way. At the Berber house, we are greeted with tea and get insights about the agricultural activities of the Berbers. We eat at the farmhouse, and spend the night there.
Morning walk to "Cascade D'Akchour". The scenery is breathtaking and the river water, crystal clear. On the Pont de Dieu, a canyon formation, through which the river Farda has flown, we take a picnic lunch and then continue through agricultural areas towards Douar Ouslaf and finally Akchour. There, we will be picked up and driven back to Chefchaouen, where we spend the night with half boarding at Hotel Casa Hassan (or similar).
