After leaving the airport, you will join the peripheral motorway of Tangier, before connecting to the main road between Tangier and Tetouan. As you continue south-east, the scenery will slowly become more mountainous. After about 1 hour of driving time, you will reach the city of Tetouan, at which point you will join the Tetouan – Chefchaouen road. This is a smaller road, but is a significant artery connecting the towns and villages of the Rif Mountains with the extreme north of Morocco. During the winter, the road can be blocked due to flash flooding, although this is a rare occurrence.
This is where the trip gets interesting. Be prepared for breathtaking views as you follow the winding road through the foothills of the Rif Mountain range. This road slaloms the valleys and hillsides, and is an important trade route for Northern Morocco. There are also regular police checks due to the illegal transport of hashish which is grown in the hills near Chefchaouen.

Additionally, our drivers are cautious, and do not speed. We want you to be comfortable in your taxi to Chefchaouen!
