Outside the Costa del Sol, there are many places inland where it is nice to walk. There are important natural parks, such as the Parque Natural de la Sierra de las Nieves and the Parque Natural de los Montes de Málaga.
Sierra de Mijas.
Endless hiking, that's what you can do in the Sierra de Mijas. This is the mountain range where you can already see the white village of Mijas-Peublo from afar. Above the village is a road (A387) where you can park your car and where all routes start. The access 'Acceso Ermita del Calvario' is the most used. A few hundred meters further towards Alhaurín is the entrance 'Puente Colorado'. 7 varied routes have been set out on the Fuente Colorado. Everyone can walk there because there are short routes, long, flat, steep, difficult and easy routes. The nice thing about walking here is that you are continuously treated to a beautiful panorama over the coast. If you come a little higher, you will see the (sometimes snow-capped) peaks of the Sierra de Las Nieves to the west or those of the Sierra Nevada to the east.
El Torcal is located in the vicinity of the village of Antequera and the Caminto del Rey and is located north of Malaga. El Torcal is a spectacular and beautiful nature reserve because of the breathtaking rocks and beautiful nature. Numerous flowers grow here, including many orchids, peonies and lilies.
De Sierra Nevada heeft de hoogste berg van het Spaanse vasteland, tot wel 3.500 meter hoog. In het voorjaar, zomer en najaar kan je er mooi wandelen in dit nationaal park.
Sendero El Satillo.
As part of the 'Gran Senda de Málaga' (Málaga's long-distance walk), near the village of Canillas de Aceituno de El Saltillo is located. Metal footpaths have already been attached along the rocks and the route has been walkable for years, but a special suspension bridge has now been built. The bridge is 54 meters long and 1.20 meters wide. Enjoy the views, the wildlife, walking along a modern aqueduct and finally the metal walkways attached to the rocks.
