What you'll do

I will pick you up in Malaga city center with the van and we will go to Frigiliana. From there, we will cross the village and some avocados plantation. Walking through different crops, we will reach the arab irrigation canal that gets into the gorge of the Higueron river.

We'll walk through the old arab irrigation canal to get into the natural park. We will learn about the way of life and 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 spectacular view points to take pictures .

At the end of the hike we will visit Frigiliana, problably the most beautiful village in Andalusia. Once we finish, we will do a wine tasting in a cellar.

This is a perfect hike to do a complete inmersion in the countryside and to understand the real Malaga.

This was a fantastic way to spend a morning. Alfonso was an excellent guide, and also happy to take some photos at certain points too. He gave us lots of information and answered any questions on this fabulous hike. The early departure allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the town when it was very quiet and also complete the steep part of the hike before it was too warm! We had a great time. Oh and the wine tasting was great too, with stunning views

Alfonso knows a lot about the history and the natural environment of the places he takes you to, so you get to learn so much more than when you venture out by yourself!

What a great journey ! Alfonso showed us in a genuine and interactive way the cultural heritage of Frigiliana : spontaneous discussions with local farmers and inhabitants, adventurous walk along the old irrigation canal and great knowledge about the typical features of the Frigiliana town and surrounding landscape. We even had the chance to see a « cabra montesa » ! Alfonso’s extroverted character put us all in a good mood and made us feel comfortable since minute one of the trip. I highly recommend this experience !
