In the afternoon we continue our way through the Cedar Woods where, if we are lucky, we´ll see some monkeys. The next place we´ll visit is the city of Ifrane, situated in the northwestern of the Middle Atlas at 1640 meters high. Its broad avenues, its urban development with perfect cleanness, the gardens, the green areas and its architecture make this city look like a swiss town, Our lovely king has a Palace here. Ifrane feels misplaced in Morocco. Thats why it´s named the moroccan Switzerland, and if that´s not enough it has an important ski resort called Michlifen, About 5 pm we arrive at Fez, transfer to the hotel, and end of our services.
