The Moorish town of Comares

A long weekend of exploration!

Join us as we explore the wonderful and thrilling surroundings of the mountains and towns of Inland Malaga.

Take a journey through a limestone gorge eroded over millions of years, walk through olive and almond groves as we make our way up to a Moorish fortress town, and weave beneath the mountains of the Central Limestone Arch.

How difficult?

If you are a regular walker, there should be nothing challenging on any of these walks. The walks are rated easy/moderate, with small sections that may be steep and include some rough terrain underfoot.

When we set out each day, our walks are between 12 and 16 kilometres, with approximately 400 to 700 metres of ascent.

When to come

This holiday is available from March to early May and then from the end of September to January. The weather is generally consistent in those months, but both in May and September, the temperature can be around 30 degrees. 

Are you unsure of when to come, or do you have dates that you prefer? Please look at our available dates; we have a wide range throughout the year.
