Trekking in Málaga and Andalucía

One of the benefits of visiting Spain is the abundance of beautiful natural parks, mountains and scenery, and there are very few places that come close to what Malaga and Andalucía have to offer. Enthusiasts travel from all over the world to trek and hike in the mountains and wilderness areas here, and nobody knows them better than Luis. A highly experienced professional mountain guide and botanist with formal training in “leave no trace” principles and local natural history, Luis will teach you all the fundamentals of trekking and instruct you in wilderness and mountain travel skills, including what to do when things go wrong.

If you’re interested in having a unique and exciting experience then a trekking trip is for you. Trekking is beneficial to the body, mind and spirit, helping you to stay active, deal with stress and reconnect with nature. Being in the wilderness or high in the mountains offers adventure, solitude, an amazing diversity of landscapes, and wonderful plant and animal life you’ll never see in a city. Nothing beats the freedom of a guided trek with your days spent learning to be self-sufficient in the wilderness and your nights spent under the stars.

Below are a couple of our favourite places to trek in Andalucía, but there are many, many others to discover. Contact Luis now and let us guide you through some of the special areas far off the tourist track that we know so intimately.

If you’re after something a little more relaxed, and are interested in discovering more about Spain’s incredible biodiversity and its geology, ecosystems, and flora and fauna then take a look at our Interpretative Trails page for details of shorter trips with a strong focus on the natural environment.

Spain offers a lifetime worth of treks for you to enjoy: the Picos de Europa, the Pyrenees, Sierra de Gredos and many more, from one day adventures to strenuous multi day treks. If you’re interested in an unforgettable trip to any of these destinations then contact Luis now and we can plan it together. If you’d like to travel further afield then have a look at our Adventure Travel page for more information on our trips to the Alps and The Atlas mountains in Morocco.
