Active Andalus Hiking Holidays

Great walking and hiking holidays in Andalucia

Located in the Malaga province, and bordering the provinces of Granada, Cordoba and Seville we are fortunate to have an array of beautiful walking and hiking areas that allow you to experience a diverse landscape; from the coastal paths of the Costa del Sol, to the high peaks of the national parks, and the beautiful paths and tracks that weave their way through the small white Andalucían villages.

Surroundings

Andalucía is the southernmost province on the Iberian Peninsula. It is the meeting point of continental Europe with Africa, and where the waters of the Atlantic and Mediterranean battle their way through the narrow straits of Gibraltar. It’s cultural significance in the history of Spain can be seen throughout many of its’ reigions; from the Neolithic period, the occupation of the Romans, the Moorish invasion, and the battles of the Reconquista’s.


The diversity of these landscapes and geographical terrain gives rise to an array of environments that go from the sun soaked beaches of the costa’s through to the luxuriant mid-mountain areas and right up to the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

  • Hiking the summits (weekend)
    Nights: 4
    Prices from: € 299 (pp)

    The Malaga province is home to some truly spectacular mountains, and we’re just a stone’s throw away from them all. To our north are the mountains that form the ‘Central Limestone Arch’, east is the Tejeda, Almijara & Alhama natural park, and to the west are the amazing limestone walls, gorges and summits of El Chorro, all of which form part of the Penibaetic system.


    On this adventurous guided walking holiday, you’ll have the opportunity to hike along the ridges and ascend to the summits to enjoy the magnificent views. The routes are between 8 to 16 kilometres long with around 6 to 9 hours to complete, and can include sections of scrambling. On all of the walks expect to find a mixture of gravel tracks, well defined footpaths and the occasional section of scree. All of our walks are local to us and do involve some travelling, but are no longer than an hours drive.

  • The Great Malaga Path Challenge
    Nights: 9
    Prices from: € 699 (pp)

    The Great Malaga Path - An epic long-distance footpath, completed in 2014, that circles the province of Malaga. With a total of 35 stages covering 650 kms, this circular walk starts and finishes in the town of Malaga, and takes the walker through some of the most beautiful areas of this province.


    The Challenge - Join us as we traverse the eastern section of the path from the small village of Villanueva del Rosario, all the way to the coastal village of Maro, travelling through the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama natural park, which is unarguaby one of the most dramatic and spectacular parts of the walk. Incredible scenery, challenging paths, and undeniably Andalucían!


    Key Facts – 8 days (including one rest day), 135 kilometres / 85 miles long, 4500 metres / 14750 feet of ascent, 1387 metres / 4550 feet highest point


    The Route – Hiking the eastern side of the GR249 is more dramatic, in our opinion, when reversed! We start in the village of Villanueva del Rosario, which is located north of the ‘Central Limestone Arch’ and make our way south to the coastal village of Maro. The first half of the challenge takes us across the ridge of mountains that form part of the limestone arch, and then into the lower slopes of Olive Groves, and finally into the western flank of the Sierra de Tejeda natural park. 


    The final part of our challenge is in the Tejeda & Almijara natural park, where the walking takes on a more serious feel. Initially we skirt along the border, and then start the climb up into the heart of the park, reaching an altitude of 1387 metres (4550 feet) with breath-taking views all around, particularly towards the coast. We complete our hike as we drop down from the natural park and finish at the coast on Maro beach.


    On The Trail – The GR249 uses an existing network of excellent paths and tracks, and so doesn’t present any real difficulty. However, the section that rises to the second highest point of the walk (day 7) is steep, with parts of the path very loose, so care is required here. There are also two consecutive days that total over 50kms (31 miles) of walking, so participants need to be able to cope with this duration of walking. 

  • Exploring Inland
    Nights: 7
    Prices from: € 529 (pp)

    Join us for a series of walks that explore the rural side of inland Spain, as we meander around the mountains and olive groves and pass through the small villages so typical of Andalucía. Most of the walks are in areas that you wouldn’t normally find too many tourists, so don’t be surprised if we're the only ones on the track! During your stay with us we’ll explore the lesser known, but equally beautiful, areas at the western end of the Tejeda Natural Park. The small villages of Alfarnatejo, Antequera, Villanueva del Rosario, Riogordo and Comares will feature throughout our travels.


    During this holiday we will offer you a variety of guided walking routes that we would rate as having a ‘Low’ to ‘Medium’ difficulty. These are generally in the lowlands and cover between 7 to 18 kilometres, with around 5 to 7 hours to complete. Predominantly on well-defined paths and tracks, although we do have walks that take us into the open mountainside. All of our walks are local to us and do involve some travelling, but are no longer than an hours drive.
