Full description
This tour of the Buitreras Canyon, situated in El Colmenar de La Frontera (Malaga), is an intermediate canyoning trip of around 5 hours. Before touching the water, you will visit the Puente de los Alemanes, a bridge that straddles the walls of the canyon, at a height of 60 meters above the river. From here, you will see part of the route you will take through the canyon, and start to get excited about the adventure that awaits you. For this activity, a medium to high level of physical fitness and technical skill is required. You will be swimming and walking in some areas, and also doing abseiling down sections of rock face higher than 10 meters. You will do different jumps, from between 3 and 12 meters high. These jumps are optional. See the descent of Buitreras Canyon, considered the most spectacular of the Andalusian canyons. Admire the different rock formations as you travel through the canyon. In some places the canyon is so narrow that you can touch both walls at same time, and in others the rocky walls are more than 100 meters high. You will enjoy an unique experience in this rugged landscape.

Physically very demanding tour. The group formation means that there are different levels of performance, which means that the tour can take longer and there are waiting times during the tour. Other groups are also on this track, which can lead to renewed waiting times, which are considerable. The three of us paid over 340 euros. I would have expected a snack and drinks to be included. So we had to bring food with us. All in all a very nice tour with great views. In retrospect, a climbing tour over and under huge boulders, some jumps into the water and incredibly long hikes. The way there in swimming trunks and shoes that you can borrow there, but are uncomfortable, took 45 minutes. The way back even over an hour. That has to be better organized. My recommendation: the children must be at least 15 years old.

Amazing !!

It was an absolutely amazing experience in so many ways! Nature was incredibly beautiful and magnificent and to get through the gorge we needed to challenge ourselves, both physically and mentally. The guide was awesome - socially very nice and we felt safe and secure through all the steps. We highly recommend this - a memory of a lifetime !!

Unforgettable experience

We booked the tour pretty spontaneously 2 days in advance but everything went perfectly. Our guide José was absolutely great. It was a lot of fun, but also explained a lot to us with specialist knowledge. The gorge was breathtakingly beautiful. We would recommend it to anyone with a little fitness and a taste for adventure!
