La Rejía & La Virgen Waterfalls

Our first walk of the week is a circular walk starting and finishing at our hotel. Our route starts with a steep climb through pine forests to hit a natural mirador where we enjoy spectacular views over the magnificent River of the Horses (Rio de los Caballos) valley. The walk will then take us along the river where we discover waterfalls including the highest of Malaga’s waterfalls (51 m high): La Rejía. Along the way there are natural pools where we can stop for a refreshing swim.

Sierra & Pinsapos

This morning we take our bus and head to Puerto Saucillo, 6 km away from the white village of Yunquera where we start todays walk. Along this walk, we can enjoy the magnificent views of the Sierra de Las Nieves National Park. Walking through the heart of this recently declared National Park, we can experience the well-known karst topography home to the mineral landscapes, large caves and sinkholes on the highest section, and interestingly in contrast partly covered by the amazing world’s largest Pinsapo fir forests dating back to the last ice age. As we descend, we will come across the centuries old Quejigos (Valencian oak) forest. We continue downwards to the breath-taking La Caina limestone cliff before we arrive back walking through the Pinsapo forest toward Puerto Caucon and Puerto Saucillo where we started the todays walk.

Day at Leisure

Today is a day at leisure where we can take a well-earned rest in this lovely village or perhaps take advantage of an excursion to visit the magnificent village of Ronda or visit  a local bodega with wine tasting (payable locally).
  • Breakfast and Dinner Included

Caminito del Rey

Today, we leave the National Park and take our bus to experience the unique and spectacular aerial path Caminito del Rey “the kings little pathway” named after King Alfonso III who officially opened this feat of engineering in 1921. As said being one of the most spectacular routes from beginning to end, we experience walking along suspended walkways over 100m up on a sheer cliff face offering unforgettable jaw dropping views running through the cliffs, canyons and valleys. We cross the landscapes of Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, a gorge with walls 700m high carved out by the river Guadalhorce.
