Torcal de Antequera


What is the experience?

Once everyone is gathered at the meeting point in Malaga at 8:30 am we will begin our adventure through the beautiful natural park. With this trekking route in Torcal de Antequera we will see nature in its purest form: surrounded by both mountain wonders and the great diversity of the fauna and flora that characterize the place.

When we are all ready in our van, we will start engines for a journey of less than an hour. We will arrive around 9:20 a.m., a perfect time to enjoy the place for almost all of us.

The path selected for this activity is the most striking because you can admire the most visible rock formations such as: the camel, the sphinx, the robot, the cathedrals and the screw. In addition, in the morning you can probably see the mountain goats wandering around the area. The most curious thing is to observe these animals climbing on the rocks, their ability to climb is really amazing!

As we walk at a calm pace we will pass by viewpoints with impressive landscapes to the natural park. Get your camera ready! During the whole route you will find unique views. Our guide will tell us the most curious facts and explain what many of these natural phenomena are due to.

Little by little we get closer to the most expected, the figures carved in the rocks that have been there for millions of years. We will also find fossils and an area with a lot of vegetation. Without a doubt, this landscape is one of the most special in all of Europe.

To finish this adventure, we will arrive at a beautiful viewpoint where we will have incredible views of the valley of Villanueva de Concepción. Be careful! because maybe you can have a sighting of vultures, their nests are usually very close to this point so it is not uncommon to see them flying around here. Did you know that this species is in danger of extinction? Besides, they are very large birds up to 2.5 meters.

The way back to our van will be just as entertaining, as we will be able to see another impressive area, the place where the Tornillo del Torcal is located. This natural monument is the one with the most protection in the whole park. Let yourself fall in love with the wonders of nature!
