The Rif or Riff (Berber:Amazigh Arif, جبال الريف} is a mainly mountainous region of northern Morocco, with some fertile plains, stretching from Cape Spartel and Tangier in the west to Ras Kebdana and the Melwiyya River in the east, and from the Mediterranean in the north to the river of Wergha in the south.

The region's name comes from the Berber word Arif.
