Trekking from Chefchaouen to Akchour

During the day of departure you will walk for about 8 hours, and although at first 8 hours take a little back, during these hours you will visit incredible and beautiful places. In addition, there are several stops along the way that make the route very complete.

The first stop we made was in the Regional Natural Park of Talassemtane.

Akchour, Marruecos

During the first day you will also arrive at the village of Afeska, but it will not be until Azilane where you will finally reach the end of the day's trekking, you will have a typical Moroccan homemade meal and sleep in a hostel.

Once dawn, after breakfast, the trekking restarts until reaching the bridge of God. It is a rock formation, created naturally that resembles a bridge.

Very close to here you will finally arrive at the Akchour waterfalls, where there are also small lagoons. The landscape is beautiful and the desire to get into the water makes it impossible not to take off your shoes and take a dip. After a stop for a bathroom and lunch, you will continue the trekking until you reach the town of Akchour.

Akchour, Marruecos

Once you arrive at the town of Akchour, you will have to return to Chefchaouen on your own. This transfer is not included. The cost of the taxi cost us 22 euros.

It is a very beautiful trekking and although we arrived a little exhausted, we enjoyed it a lot.

We booked the excursion from Chefchaouen, with a local agency. However, it was a last minute decision and we almost ended up without a guide. You can book your trekking in advance with the civitatis company.

If the idea of ​​doing a two-day trek does not excite you much, there is a more enjoyable option of visiting the natural environment and the Akchour waterfalls. You can book an excursion so you can enjoy this wonder of nature.
