Some examples of the routes we will be doing

The walking routes (subject to change - depending on weather conditions, we choose the most interesting routes per period of the year)

La Ruta de Los Olivos Milenarios

La Ruta de Los Olivos Milenarios, this is a route along the thousand-year-old olive trees. Olive trees are inextricably linked to the Axarquía area. The biggest source of income in this region from agriculture is the olives, for which the worldwide priced olive oil Aceite Verdial has been made for centuries.

This route is about 9.5 kilometers, takes three hours and leads among others along the oldest olive tree in Spain, "El Chato", which is estimated at 1500 years. Along the way, you get info about the ancient industry of olive oil production.

Route La Maroma

La Maroma, "the rope", the name of the highest mountain in Málaga (2067 meters). Here you can do fantastic walks. This botanical trail starts in a beautiful forest halfway up the mountain where you will have a beautiful view over the Sierra de Tejada and the Mediterranean Sea. On the way, you look out over a large part of Axarquía, with its white villages and you get to know the impressive flora and fauna.

Route Rio Chillar

Rio Chillar, a river near Nerja, where an amazing route runs along the river, through the nature park. You will see many flowers and plants. And when the weather permits it, you can cool down in the waterfalls and water pools that you encounter along the way. The rock walls you will walk along are impressive. This walk takes about 3 hours. Following the possibility to visit the beautiful beach of Nerja.

Route El Torcal

El Torcal, one of the most extraordinary natural areas in Europe, created more than 150 million years ago, 30 kilometers north of Málaga. The limestone rocks have been given a special shape due to tectonic forces and erosion.

During the 2.5 hours of walking (4.5 kilometers), you could easily encounter different kinds of animals, including eagles, vultures, foxes, rabbits, mountain goats, badgers, weasels or lizards. The flora consists of no less than 664 different plant species including about 30 species of orchids as well as 12 species of moss and all kinds of white, pink and yellow flowers that form a beautiful decoration on the bare stone. Following the possibility of visiting the medieval city of Antequera.

Route Alhama de Granada

Alhama de Granada is a very picturesque village situated on top of a gorge, "Los Tajos", between Málaga and Granada. People call it little Ronda. It has a rich history that dates back to the Roman times but which you can also see through the Moorish castle and hot springs.

You walk a 16 kilometers walk that will last about 3.5 hours. Along the way, walking along the river, you see abandoned mills and impressive poplars and fig trees. Following the opportunity to visit the "hidden gem" Alhama de Granada or the nearby hot springs.

Is this hiking and yoga retreat something for you?

Our retreat is both for men and women, young and old, both walkers that are not so experienced as people who already have experience with Hiking and or Yoga. The routes all vary in difficulty but they are easy to do for people with a normal condition. This walking and yoga holiday is for everyone who is looking for a combination of beautiful walks, yoga, interesting workshops, and space to relax in a beautiful nature reserve.

We deliberately choose to work with small groups; during our walking holiday there is a maximum of 12 participants. Jeroen will host you and accompany you as a guide to tell you more about the environment and the culture.

An example of how your day goes during the retreat

You get up in the morning and we start the day with an energizing yoga session. Afterward, a breakfast buffet will be waiting for you. After breakfast, you can take a rest and prepare your things to take with you during the walk that day. We leave by car or bus, depending on the size of the group, towards the starting point of the walking tour. During the walk, you can have lunch.

Upon arrival at the end of the walk, we are picked up again by car or bus and we drive back to the location. On a number of hiking days, a stop will be made during the return trip to give you the opportunity to visit an interesting village, city or attraction.

When you arrive at the location you have time to rest, read a good book and enjoy the peace, space, and nature of the surroundings and at night dinner will be served. Included in the holiday are an inspiring cooking workshop by the chef Alejandro, and we make a kayak trip on Lake Viñuela. To end the week in a great way, the last evening is a Spanish night!
