Geology

 

Arco de GibraltarOn your final descent towards Malaga Airport, you would’ve noticed that you cross a narrow range of mountains that run roughly east to west. These mountains form the western end of the Penibaetic system, which is part of the Baetic System which itself is a part of the ‘Gibraltar Arc’.
Formed by the north–south convergence of the Eurasian and African plates, the range is around 23 million years old and stretches from Cadiz in the west to Valencia in the east, and also includes the Balearic Islands.

Our walking extends from the limestone gorges of El Chorro in the west across to the coastal cliffs of La Herradura in the east. Within this area we have El Torcal, the Central Limestone Arch and the Tejeda, Almijara & Alhama natural park. Geologically these are still very young mountains, and this can be seen by the sharp ridges, steep faces and rocky slopes.


flora2

Another important geological feature that is found here is the Limestone Karst, perfectly visible in the El Torcal nature reserve, and featured throughout many of the walks, particularly whilst in the Central Limestone Arch and high up in the Sierra de Loja. It can make the walking tough, with the smaller Karst being randomly spaced and with razor sharp edges, but its' presence adds to the uniqueness of the walk.

  

Flora

 

flora3There is so much here to enjoy that a few paragraphs can do it no justice, although what follows is a brief introduction!

The Iberian Peninsula, particularly the south-west, is bar far the richest in plant species in continental Europe. The diversity of the flora in Iberia can be attributed to many reasons, but the lack of a permanent ice cap in the last ice age, the proximity to North Africa, the geographical isolation, and the climate have been major contributors.

 

flora4As we explore you’ll discover oaks, pines, matorral plants, mountain plants, and the endemic plants, but by far the most abundant tree you’ll see is the olive tree. Not a truly native tree of Iberia, there are an estimated 300 million olive trees in Spain, with 70 million in Andalucía alone! Where the landscape is broken by limestone karst, which makes it difficult to harvest the olives, we can see a mixture of holm oak and wild olive growing together.

  

Fauna

flora5aThere is a lot to see in our little part of Andalucía, and although it may take a few return visits to view more, along the way we’ll have chance to discover many mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians.

Of significant interest is the birdlife. The proximity of Africa, the migration routes, the combination of the mountain, steppe and maritime habits and, of course, the year-round superb climate make an ornithological visit memorable and rewarding.
There’s a lot of interesting information on wildlife at this great website.

The Great Malaga Path - An epic long-distance footpath, completed in 2014, that circles the province of Malaga. With a total of 35 stages covering 650 kms, this circular walk starts and finishes in the town of Malaga, and takes the walker through some of the most beautiful areas of this province.

 

  

gmpco3The Challenge - Join us as we traverse the eastern section of the path from the small village of Villanueva del Rosario, all the way to the coastal village of Maro, travelling through the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama natural park, which is unarguaby one of the most dramatic and spectacular parts of the walk. Incredible scenery, challenging paths, and undeniably Andalucían!

Key Facts – 8 days (including one rest day), 135 kilometres / 85 miles long, 4500 metres / 14750 feet of ascent, 1387 metres / 4550 feet highest point

 

gmpco4The Route – Hiking the eastern side of the GR249 is more dramatic, in our opinion, when reversed! We start in the village of Villanueva del Rosario, which is located north of the ‘Central Limestone Arch’ and make our way south to the coastal village of Maro. The first half of the challenge takes us across the ridge of mountains that form part of the limestone arch, and then into the lower slopes of Olive Groves, and finally into the western flank of the Sierra de Tejeda natural park. 

 

 

gmpco5

The final part of our challenge is in the Tejeda & Almijara natural park, where the walking takes on a more serious feel. Initially we skirt along the border, and then start the climb up into the heart of the park, reaching an altitude of 1387 metres (4550 feet) with breath-taking views all around, particularly towards the coast. We complete our hike as we drop down from the natural park and finish at the coast on Maro beach.

 

 

gmpco6

On The Trail – The GR249 uses an existing network of excellent paths and tracks, and so doesn’t present any real difficulty. However, the section that rises to the second highest point of the walk (day 7) is steep, with parts of the path very loose, so care is required here. There are also two consecutive days that total over 50kms (31 miles) of walking, so participants need to be able to cope with this duration of walking. For a better feel of the walk, have a read of our 'On The Trail' article or browse through the guidebook. For any additional information please contact us by email.

 

Our Offer – The ‘Great Malaga Path Challenge’ is offered as a fully inclusive holiday. We’ll collect you from the airport (or other locations upon request) and bring you to your accommodation for the week. You’ll stay in a single or double room, with en suite and wi-fi, and includes full board. Each day we make the short journey to the start of each stage, and return at the end of the day.

2018 Dates

Friday 20th to Sunday 29th April - €699 per person - Sorry, no longer available!

A more adventurous hike! 

summit3

The Malaga province is home to some truly spectacular mountains, and we’re just a stone’s throw away from them all. To our north are the mountains that form the ‘Central Limestone Arch’, east is the Tejeda, Almijara & Alhama natural park, and to the west are the amazing limestone walls, gorges and summits of El Chorro, all of which form part of the Penibaetic system.

 

 

summit4On this adventurous guided walking holiday, you’ll have the opportunity to hike along the ridges and ascend to the summits to enjoy the magnificent views. The routes are between 8 to 16 kilometres long with around 6 to 9 hours to complete, and can include sections of scrambling. On all of the walks expect to find a mixture of gravel tracks, well defined footpaths and the occasional section of scree. All of our walks are local to us and do involve some travelling, but are no longer than an hours drive.

Explore the beautiful inland regions of Andalucia

explore3Join us for a series of walks that explore the rural side of inland Spain, as we meander around the mountains and olive groves and pass through the small villages so typical of Andalucía. Most of the walks are in areas that you wouldn’t normally find too many tourists, so don’t be surprised if we're the only ones on the track! During your stay with us we’ll explore the lesser known, but equally beautiful, areas at the western end of the Tejeda Natural Park. The small villages of Alfarnatejo, Alfarnate, Villanueva del Rosario, Colmenar, Riogordo and Comares will feature throughout our travels.

 

explore2During this holiday we will offer you a variety of guided walking routes that we would rate as having a ‘Low’ to ‘Medium’ difficulty. These are generally in the lowlands and cover between 7 to 18 kilometres, with around 5 to 7 hours to complete. Predominantly on well-defined paths and tracks, although we do have walks that take us into the open mountainside. All of our walks are local to us and do involve some travelling, but are no longer than an hours drive.

Great walking and hiking holidays in Andalucia

Walkking holidays1Andalucía is the southernmost province on the Iberian Peninsula. It is the meeting point of continental Europe with Africa, and where the waters of the Atlantic and Mediterranean battle their way through the narrow straits of Gibraltar. It’s cultural significance in the history of Spain can be seen throughout many of its’ reigions; from the Neolithic period, the occupation of the Romans, the Moorish invasion, and the battles of the Reconquista’s.

The diversity of these landscapes and geographical terrain gives rise to an array of environments that go from the sun soaked beaches of the costa’s through to the luxuriant mid-mountain areas and right up to the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

Walkking holidays2Located in the Malaga province, and bordering the provinces of Granada, Cordoba and Seville we are fortunate to have an array of beautiful walking and hiking areas that allow you to experience such a diverse landscape; from the coastal paths of the Costa del Sol, to the high peaks of the national parks, and the beautiful paths and tracks that weave their way through the small white Andalucían villages.

Having one of the best climates in Europe means that walking is almost a year-round activity, so if you’re one of our neighbours in Northern Europe then you can escape the long grey cold days of winter, and join us for warm, clear and sunny days of walking!

walking holidays3Our guided walking holidays are based from our Guesthouse and are fully inclusive, and offered to suit all levels of fitness and ability. We only run our holidays for small groups, ensuring that you receive a high level of care, and always with a feeling of being unhurried.

Choose from guided long walking weekends, or a full week of guided walking. If you want to bring a group, or maybe spend more than a week walking, or select your own itinerary, then contact us so that we can design a holiday just as you'd like it!
