Bring a camera to Cascades d'Akchour, a scenic set of waterfalls near the small Moroccan village of Akchour. You can reach the falls via a short hike from the tiny village, or opt for a longer trek from Chefchaouen, a 25 km (15 mile) journey. Hike along the river up to the large cascade for a picturesque view, admiring the smaller waterfall along the way. On your way to the big fall, you'll encounter a series of natural pools you can take a dip in or use as backdrop for a picnic break.

  • The waterfalls have been a bit of an emblem of the holiday in Morocco in the summer, that is, spectacular and deserving places but always crowded, not only by tourists but also and especially by the locals who have set up food outlets (although Spartan and in tune with the surroundings) every 10 meters. The walk is therefore interesting, but not relaxing.

  • A walk in an enchanting setting with opportunities to take a tagine feet in the water. Really beautiful and nice.
