We hike to the Cruz de Pinto (400 meters height) for a light lunch break and Cerro Felix (500 meters height) for another light lunch break, before returning to Frigiliana for a cold beer and then take a bus back to Nerja. Distance covered is 10 kilometres and accumulate height gained is 500 meters. We will be out for about 6 hours.

We have introduced a series of Spanish experiences to compliment your walking holiday in Nerja and Frigiliana. These experiences are available to anyone on our 1 week walking holiday or group walking holidays subject to minimum numbers.

An evening Gourmet Tour of Frigiliana.
Our tour will transport you to Frigiliana from your accommodation to a lovely authentic Spanish restaurant in Frigiliana in the evening. After dinner we take a leisurely stroll through the back streets of Frigiliana under street lamps and moonlit skies. As a resident of Frigiliana for 10 years I always prefer to show off the town at night rather than during the day.
€35 per person includes transport, restaurant and guided tour of the town.

Tapas Tour of Nerja.
Our evening Tapa tour will make 5 stops at various bars for a drink and a tapa. The word "Tapa" means "Top". It was used by bar owners as a slice of bread with a piece of fish or meat that was set on Top of a glass of wine in order to keep the flies out of the drink. Its so popular now and the tapas have become very elaborate over the decades. We visit 5 great tapas bars for 2 drinks each in Nerja and the tour lasts about 2 hours.
€25 per person includes transport , drinks and tapas.






Cliff Top BBQ in Maro.
This is a lovely evening in a rural setting overlooking the Mediterranean sea. With food and drinks on a lovely plantation of banana trees, lemon trees, avocado and grapevines. Someone brings a guitar and a singsong starts up. This is an authentic  and fun experience that you wont forget.
€35 per person includes transport, BBQ food and drinks.





Evening Beach Picnic.
We make our way down to El Salon Beach in Nerja just as the sun goes down. We have picnic on the sands and watch the stars come out. We provide picnic blankets, food wine and beers, plates and glasses. We bring a guitar or two and have ourselves a singsong and a laugh. Its a great way to spend a couple of hours in the evening.
€25 per person includes transport, food and drinks.
