I will pick you up in Malaga city center with the van and we will go to Frigiliana. From there, we will cross the village and some avocados plantation. Walking through different crops, we will reach the arab irrigation canal that gets into the gorge of the Higueron river. We'll walk through the old arab irrigation canal to get into the natural park. We will learn about the way of life and we will interpretate the landscape of the Natural Park of Sierra Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara: its geology, the animals, plants...We'll stop at the most spectacular view points to take pictures . At the end of the hike we will visit Frigiliana, problably the most beautiful village in Andalusia. Once we finish, we will do a wine tasting in a cellar. This is a perfect hike to do a complete inmersion in the countryside and to understand the real Malaga. It´s a technically easy hike with just a part where you may have to put your feet into the water during 20 meters. STAYING IN TORREMOLINOS, BENALMADENA OR FUENGIROLA? THE LAST TRAIN STATION IN MALAGA ("ALAMEDA") IS JUST THREE MINUTES WALKING TO THE MEETING POINT. NOT ALLOWED TO EAT FOOD OR HAVE DRINKS IN THE VAN. IF YOU WANT TO VISIT NERJA IN THE AFTERNOON I CAN DROP YOU OFF THERE (BUS TO MALAGA EACH 30 MINUTES (4,5€/pp).
