Guests felt absorbed in a community or culture.

What you'll do

I will pick you up in Malaga city center with the van and we will go to the white village.

Once there, we will start the hike visiting the white village first and then taking the arab irrigation canal until the gorge of the almanchares river, in the heart of the Natural Park (2h30).

Along the path we will interpretate the landscape of the Natural Park of Sierra Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara: its geology, the animals, plants...We'll stop at the most beautiful view points to take pictures.

Once in the river, we will do a picnic and we will take a bath in the crystalline water of the river (not in winter).

In the way back (1h), it´s very likely to cross wild goats in the Natural Park and we will enjoy the sunset in the mountains.

Perfect hike to do an inmersion in the countryside and to understand the real Malaga.

We had a very enjoyable day with Alfonso. He was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The walk was beautiful and highly recommended. The terrain was quite challenging but views worth it.

Really enjoyed this hike. Alfonso was very nice and the group was also pleasant to spend time with. We had great weather and the picnic at the waterfall was a particular highlight! Very peaceful. A great way to see more of the area outside of the city.

Worth every penny - the views were absolutely stunning, Alfonso was a fantastic and friendly host who shared knowledge of the area, making the hike even more interesting. We are just gutted we couldn't do any more of his hikes whilst in Malaga!

Had a great time with Alfonso. The walk took in some beautiful scenery and we never felt hurried. The pace was leisurely and the terrain easy going. Alfonso was a genial host, very personable and knowledgeable about the local area and customs. We had a great afternoon in his company.
