What you'll do
The Chaouen Insider (TCI) Sunset Hike Watching the sunset over Chefchaouen is a must! Join me as we head off the tourist trail on a bit of an adventure. After meeting we get straight into it, spending time exploring some of the quieter parts of the old medina as we make our way uphill to the very top of the medina to walk along the old medina wall. Stopping for photos and to take in the view we then head down a rocky & steep path to Ras el Maa (the stream where we can see traditional laundry, the head of the river) and a quick juice stop. Continuing on, after a short downhill repreive, we will then head uphill to the Spanish Mosque via a local path I know, passing through an old cemetery, views over the town and surrounding countryside and you may even pass through herds of sheep, goats & see a donkey if youre lucky. Of course, stopping regularly to take in the spectacular views over Chaouen from a different perspective. We will arrive at the Spanish Mosque with plenty of time to sit and take in the breathtaking views, pose for photos, while watching the sunset. Snap away as the light changes, rays appear and the sun sets on the Rif Mountains above. We will slowly wander back down via the main well lit track, stopping to hear the sunset Prayer to call echo across the valley.
The Chaouen Insider... I'm Renay, a friendly Aussie who left my life as a Town Planner, discovered Morocco in 2017 & never left! I have a passion for people, travel, photography & all things outdoors! I started my travel concierge business, 'The Chaouen Insider' to help travellers easily get more of a local experience in Chefchaouen. So anything you need just ask! I can help with hiking, hammams, rug shopping, food, hiking, coffee etc. Ive travelled extensively around Morocco & the world but fell in love with Chaouen. My partner is a local & he may join us on experiences. Id love to show you this beautiful city and the people and reasons I enjoy living here so please get in touch: See our adventures on: IG: @thechaoueninsider FB: The Chaouen Insider Web: www.thechaoueninsider.c
We will stop for a nice fresh orange juice along the way.
