hiking & Spanish Package

For those of you who love to combine culture and sports, we have the perfect hiking adventure holiday trip for you.

Come and enjoy the blue skies of sunny Andalusia, Southern Spain. There was a report done in 2016 and confirmed that there was on average 320 sunny days each year.  

This hiking trip is suitable for anyone who has a good basic level of fitness and who loves being in stunning countryside, regardless of levels of Spanish. Our Spanish learning is integrated in to our walking day in a fun, creative way and is open to all levels of learners.

The hikes will mostly take place in the world famous El Chorro and it’s local environment. El Chorro is known for the Camino Del Rey, which used to be known as the ´scariest walkway in the world´, but has since been renovated and is now visited by many people and was voted in the Top 10 places in the world to visit in 2015. It is a small village one hours´ drive from Malaga in the mountains. Accommodation for this trip will be in a dormitory (upgrades are available) at the wonderful Finca La Campana, located in El Chorro village.

A typical day (arrival and departure days not included) will consist of a tasty buffet breakfast at 9am during which you will learn how to order a breakfast in Spanish and have fun practising new vocabulary and conversational skills. Spanish classes will take place on the walks and we will focus on practical real life everyday language.

The hikes will take on average 4/5 hours per day and most will involve hills but each hike can be adjusted to your personal ability. Your guide will explain the local natural features and introduce you to the local wildlife and birds.

You will then be free to chill and relax at the pool, have fun on the slacklines or go for a breath-taking sunset stroll.

On the rest day, you will receive an amazing gift from us, see below for more details (some courses only).

All this makes this course a fantastic way to meet new friends, become inspired and motivated, and learn new skills at the same time.
