Day Hike in Marbella
Discover Andalusia’s beautiful nature, the hidden Hinterland, deep valleys, green hills and forests, flowers and wildlife, amazing rock formations, spectacular views over the southern coast and over to Africa. You learn about the history of the region as we walk through the white villages, visit Moorish castles, roman ruins, prehistorical caves... Only by walking you get to know the "real Andalusia". We walk in very small groups of maximum 8 walkers plus your personal guide, it is like walking in a friends group. At the end of the walk we generally have some tapas in a village bar on the square (not included) and enjoy watching the laid back life of the villagers.
"Walking in Andalucia" by Guy Hunter Watts
Walking in Andalucía is a 260 page full colour guide to some of the very best walks in southern Spain, taking the walker on 34 routes - all starting and most finishing in beautiful villages - in the Natural Parks of Grazalema, La Alpujarra, Cazorla, Los Alcornocales, Aracena, and La Axarquia. Many of the full and half day walks are virtually unknown even though they are a short drive from the Costa del Sol. Even though more and more people are beginning to walk Spain's southern sierras, most of the routes remain blissfully undiscovered. Guy says, 'If you decide to head for the hills with my guide you can be sure of two things: you will be walking through areas of great natural beauty and you will meet with other walkers.'
