Guided Hiking Routes

Check out our most popular guided hiking day trips below. We are very flexible in our scheduling and don’t run set trips on set days. In other words, simply let us know the date(s) you are available and the difficulty/exertion level you are used to doing. Or select a named walk from those featured below and we will arrange a hiking route to suit you.


N.B. The trails in this area are all natural and ungroomed. This means that they can suffer some weather and usage erosion. None of our routes include anything dangerous or requiring climbing equipment but expect stony, rocky and gravelly sections on all hikes and some steep ascents (ask for more details for your route choice). 

If you prefer to self guide, there are some circular walks local to Ronda for which we can provide GPX files for a very small charge. Some of these walks are also available with a guide. Contact us for more details.
