Ecotourism and sustainable tourism in Málaga: What to expect from it
Malaga is one of the eight Andalusian provinces with the largest influx of travelers. Many of them do it for that piece of coast that looks towards the Mediterranean, but many others prefer their mountainous areas, in whose mountains it is almost a pleasure to get lost.
When talking about a big city, it is almost inevitable to think about pollution, noise or hustle and bustle. And on many occasions, this is usually a reason to refuse to visit a place. However, even though this is true and sometimes inevitable, large cities are evolving towards more sustainable models of coexistence.
So, if you are an urbanite from head to toe and would not reject the visit to the city of Malaga for anything in the world, here is a totally recommendable option and, of course, ecofriendly: rent electric bicycles. Exactly, for you, it is difficult to imagine a visit to Malaga and not enjoy its streets or its promenade, there is already a solution. Let it not be said that ecotourism is only possible on the mountain.
However, if you are an adventurer of pure strain, you have already asked yourself: where is the adrenaline? Where are the trekking routes? Quiet, here are other options, both at sea and in the mountains.
As for adventure sports on the coast (and not only in Malaga, but in the whole country), we find one of the star options: kayak or paddle surfing . Although there are also indoor, of course.
These routes, in addition to the fun that accompanies them, are also a learning tool, since the local guide who accompanies you on the journey tells you, with that passion and love that they put, what happened between those coves and corners to which, in other times, only fishermen, and occasional hustlers, arrived.
On the other hand, adventure in the mountains is no less exciting than in the water; in part, because the options, in many cases, multiply. In Malaga, which can boast several Natural Parks, you can take advantage of the opportunity to descend rivers or to cross paths through the different mountain ranges. Do not be overwhelmed, we give you some ideas.
Do you feel like feeling a bit dizzy? Dare with the Caminito del Rey. Visiting Malaga in search of hiking with an adventurous touch and not doing so is, at best, a mistake.
Are you a true explorer? Well then, explore, explore! In Malaga, the Sierra de las Nieves, the Sierra de Grazalema and the Serranía de Ronda are the bedrock of the few pinsapares, and better preserved, that there is in the peninsula.
Oh, what is yours to climb? The via ferratas are not scarce in Malaga either, and in Ronda, without going any further, you have some of them. Ascend through the rugged landscape of this beautiful mountain range and you will see that Malaga is worth it for much more than for its espetos.
Do you need a little push more?
