Talassemtane National Park is a national park in the Rif region of Northern Morocco. The 589.5-square-kilometre (227.6 sq mi) park was created in October 2004 to conserve the last of Morocco's threatened fir forests.
The park also contains other plant species endemic to the Spanish/Maghrebi biodiversity hotspot such as the endangered Atlas cedar and Andalusian Belladonna Atropa baetica. The Bearded vulture and over 100 other birds have been observed at the park.
Talassemtane is part of the Transcontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean.

The park's proximity to the popular tourist destination, Chefchaouen makes it a common hiking destination. The park's elevation ranges from 350 meters to 1,050 meters.
Popular hiking destinations include the Bridge of God, a natural bridge formation, and the villages of El Kalaá and Akchour.
