El Saltillo Gorge and white village

What is the experience?
In a trip of only 50 minutes from the center of Malaga, we will arrive to the white village of Canillas de Aceituno. Our experience will start during the tour, as we will be able to enjoy the views of the Axarquia valley from the vehicle. An area that is specialized in the planting of tropical fruits such as mango, avocado and custard apple.
When you arrive at Canillas the first thing that will call your attention will be to see that it is not a tourist town, you will not have to suffer from crowds, nor wait, which makes visiting it more authentic and special. You will feel like a local walking through its beautiful streets of white houses so typical of Andalusia. Did you know that the main economy of this town is agriculture?

As we walk, we will go up to the top. From this area we will start the excursion through the Natural Park. Located a few kilometers from the village, we will walk through an Arabian ditch until we reach the canyon. You will enjoy a route full of olive trees and diverse aromatic plants.

With some breaks, after 2 hours we will finally arrive at El Saltillo. This gorge excavated by the river Almancháres will give us a breathtaking view of the wonderful nature. Once there we will have a well deserved rest with a bath in the crystalline waters of the river and then we will have a snack accompanied by this beautiful landscape.

Once we are rested we will prepare to take the route back to the village. As the sun goes down we will enjoy a landscape decorated with red colors, we will even see the occasional mountain goat walking in the area!

When we arrive at the village we will get into the van to go back and return to Malaga. Without a doubt, a day full of emotions and many experiences.
