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. COMING IN LOW SEASON?: TEXT ME IF YOU WANT A DISCOUNT. DISCOUNT FOR FAMILIES OR MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE, 39 €. TEXT ME IN ADVANCE. STAYING IN TORREMOLINOS, BENALMADENA OR FUENGIROLA? THE LAST TRAIN STATION IN MALAGA ("ALAMEDA") IS JUST THREE MINUTES WALKING TO THE MEETING POINT. NOT ALLOWED TO EAT FOOD OR HAVE DRINKS IN THE VAN.
