Malaga Activa Tours is an Active Tourism company specialized in daily hikes from Malaga and around Malaga. Our hiking trips depart everyday from Malaga city center in a 8 passangers van. We trully believe that hiking the countryside is the best way to know the region and that travelling in a small group makes the experience much better.

Malaga is a city surrounded by mountains and natural parks so we have a wide range of hikes and experiences to offer in the province. The most well known natural parks are Desfiladero de los Gaitanes Natural Park, Torcal de Antequera Natural Park, Sierra Almijara Natural Park and Cliffs of Maro Natural Park.
All our guided walks are crafty made, providing the best hikes and most beautiful hiking trails in Malaga. So, if you are an active traveller and you want to discover the real countryside out of the crowd, this is the best way you can do it.
During the trip we explain the landscape, nature, culture and traditions of these lands so the traveller has a deeper inmersion in the area and a comprehension of the ways of living. In some of the hikes we cross white villages in the way to the natural park.
We offer a variety of hikes like Caminito del Rey hike, Torcal de Antequera hike, El Saltillo Gorge and White Village hike, the Tropical hike in Cliffs of Maro & snorkelling and the Frigiliana hike. All of them are really beautiful experiences and very different one to the other, so the traveller can book more than one and discover different valleys and landscapes in the province.
No doubt that our hike to Caminito del Rey is the most demanded. Since it was open in the 2015, Caminito del Rey has become one of the highlights when you visit Costa del Sol. The breathtaking views of the Guadalmedina river from the canyon are unique and singular in Malaga, Spain or Europe. Thanks to the nice weather we enjoy in the region, you can do it all around the year. Our excursions includes the transport from Malaga, the tickets, the guided hike in the kings path, a picnic with local products and the transport to Malaga.
Torcal de Antequera is a singular and unique Natural Park and a UNESCO site. The rock formations, the amazing scenery and wildlife of this Natural Park make the hike a unique experience full of joy. During the hiking tour we will cross the most beautiful areas and view points, always looking for the wildlife in the area. Our tour to Torcal de Antequera departs from Malaga city center and includes water, guidance during 3 hours hike, explanations and transport in a comfortable van.
El Saltillo gorge and white village is a wonderful experience and inmersion in the countryside of Malaga. El Saltillo gorge is not as busy as Caminito del Rey and you will discover the way of life in the area, typical mediterranean landscapes and a stunning gorge in the Natural Park. In the middle of the trail, we will do a picnic beside the river and you can go for a swim in the crystal clean water of the Almanchares river. At the very end we will visit the white village of Canillas del Aceituno, a hidden gem out of the touristic routes.
Along a gorgeus trail, during this Tropical hike the guests cross tropical plantations of avocados, sugar cain, papayas, chirimoyas… This tropical plantations are unique in Spain and Europe. Here they can grow due to the warm climate. The trail also crosses the Cliffs of Maro natural park, the only area in the coast without urbanizations. Thanks to the protection of tha natural park, we can enjoy these isolated beaches that just few people know. In the paradisiacal beach we relax and we have the chance to explore the sea life practicing snorkel.
As we love to mix experinces in the nature with a cultural visit, between our tours we could not miss Frigiliana and its suroundings. In the Frigiliana hiking tour you will discover spectacular panoramics over the mediterranean sea.
