  • Ways to tour

    Referring to the form of transit in the different stages, we remember that these are divided into three categories (on foot, by off-road bike or mountain bike and on horseback). However, when we indicate that it can be done on foot, we always refer to 100% of the stage; while, in the case of mountain biking and on horseback, it will depend on temporary restrictions and municipal regulations, so we will have to choose parallel or alternative routes that allow us to transit We also remember that the use of mountain biking, depending on the stage or trail, can take place by routes on irregular pavements and with high slopes, so they can involve some or a lot of technical difficulty.

    • On foot



Environmental Information

Natural Environment
  • Natural Environment

    In Álora and El Chorro Station, the Natural Park of the Gaitanes Gorge stands out above the other natural spaces, which it shares with Antequera and Ardales, in which the famous Caminito del Rey is located. Likewise, the presence of the Guadalhorce River is very relevant in the area from the environmental point of view, hence it is declared a SCI (Place of Community Interest).

    In the Abdalajís Valley we find the Sierra del Valle de Abdalajís, where the Torcalillo del Charcón, the Chapel peak and the Sierra del Castillo are located. In fact, the Sierra del Valle de Abdalajís is also protected under the figure of SCI (Place of Community Interest).
