Embark on an epic 14-day hiking adventure through four diverse Andalusian landscapes, complete with luggage transport, for only €589 per person!
Andalusia offers so many breathtaking sights to explore, and this trek is perfect for both seasoned hikers and novices alike. By the end of your journey, you'll feel like a brand new person!
First up is the Parque Natural Tejeda y Almijara near Cómpeta, where you'll spend four nights at Casa Hadriano. With over 30 different hikes to choose from in the surrounding area, you'll have plenty of options for your first two days. On the third day, you'll head west towards the village of Sedella, and then back to Cómpeta that evening. The following day, you'll walk from Sedella over the Caminito del Rey, a narrow pathway that leads to the Saltillo Gorge's hanging bridge, and then onto the village of Canillas de Aceituno, where you'll stay for two nights in a spacious apartment in the town center.
More experienced hikers can choose to climb the Maroma, the highest peak in Malaga Province at 2067 meters, straight from the village. However, if you're looking for a more relaxed hike, there are plenty of other options available as well. On the next day, you'll continue on, and the scenery will change dramatically to the awe-inspiring Ventas de Zafarraya Gorge, where you'll spend one night in a Spanish hostel.
Your next three nights will be spent in Landscape 3, the Southern Pyrenees, at the welcoming B&B El Aguila Libre with Arend and Denise, where there are many beautiful hikes to explore. After that, Arend will take you to the Parque Natural Montes de Málaga. A gorgeous hike through this natural area and down to the coast will ultimately take you to El Palo, Landscape 4, where you'll spend the last three nights in a lovely hotel equipped with all the amenities you need.
El Palo is Málaga's fishing district, located near the city center. It has an attractive beach and many beach bars and typical (fish) restaurants, making it the perfect spot for a relaxing end to your vacation. The hotel also has bicycles for rent, and the bus stop to the city center and the airport is just 100 meters away.
The trek can be as easy or challenging as you want it to be, with options for light, moderate, or strenuous hikes. The hikes between the different accommodations vary between four and seven hours, but with full luggage transport, you can also choose to take shorter two- or three-hour hikes by hopping in the baggage van.
To start your journey, all you need to do is catch a flight to Málaga that arrives before 5 PM. From there, an express bus departs every half-hour from the airport to the Málaga bus station (estación de autobuses), costing €3. The last bus from the bus station to Cómpeta departs at 6:30 PM (there is no bus service on Sundays), costing €4.85. From there, the hikes, accommodations, and luggage transport are taken care of until the trek's end in El Palo. You can then take a city bus back to the Málaga airport.
