Hikes for everyone – Province of Malaga

We welcome you to your new guide Voyage Experience: « Hikes for everyone – Province of Malaga » which will allow you to discover this beautiful province of Spain, nestled in an exceptional natural setting. It could be useful if you want to go there for one or several weeks.

Bathed by the Mediterranean Sea and the sun, the province of Andalusia is a real gem. It does not know winter along its coastline with its beautiful beaches (300 days of sunshine per year on average!!!). Malaga is also mountainous in the interior of its lands, where nature and its varied landscapes will surely charm you. Olive groves and almond trees as far as the eye can see, white villages nestled on the heights of hills or mountains, remote valleys where the sweetness of life is not just a concept but a way of living. We have discovered this province during the Covid-19 health crisis because Spain had the wisdom to reverse the first decisions made in panic.

While in several countries quarantines and hard restrictions were the norm, in Spain, the management by autonomous regions allowed people to travel within provinces with open restaurants, museums and other leisure and cultural structures. We were fortunate to see the Spaniards in a different light and to appreciate their joie de vivre. While respecting the sanitary measures, we were able to continue to live normally, to make visits and walks in nature.

In this little guide, we share with you the most beautiful hikes we have discovered in this magnificent province. We will be back there in autumn, and if there are other routes that have the same effect on us, we will add them to these ones. This little guide gathers above all our crushes and should save you time to choose the hikes which « call you out » or correspond to your interests.

There are many hikes available in the Province of Malaga, for all ages, all tastes and all levels of difficulty. We are not experienced hikers, but lovers of beautiful outings in nature, amazed by the surrounding beauties: landscapes, flora and fauna, rivers, waterfalls and lakes, caves and other geological curiosities, but also by the traces of our ancestors such as the cave paintings, the ancient necropolises, the ruins and other vestiges, witness to the passing of time.

We like to discover a region through the paths that crisscross it, especially since many have been traveled for hundreds of years.

For each hike, we will give you some information that will help you make your choice:

  • Distance in km
  • Difficulty level
  • Approximate duration
  • Nearest point of departure or commune
  • Theme – we will try to establish thematic categories such as « prehistory« , « nature », « fauna« , « forest« , « bathing« , « landscape« , « natural curiosity« , in order to guide you according to your own interests. We will accompany the description of each hike with our thematic icons of interests or affinities.
  • Necessary equipment
  • A small description with several photos to give you an idea about the track and interests

And if this little guide makes you want to know more about this region, the guide Province of Malaga will let you discover the gorgeous city of Malaga, but also the picturesque Antequera, Nerja with its exceptional cave and other jewels that make this province of the Costa del Sol, a great destination to visit in any season. We spent more than two months crossing through it and we will certainly return to it as it has conquered our hearts!
