Hiking Routes from Ronda, Andalucia

hiking up torrecilla

Want to explore the countryside near Ronda on foot? Then join us for a day on a guided hike or we can supply GPX files for local self guided hiking routes.

Our guided point-to-point hikes offer walks that you could not do alone. We include vehicle drop off or pick up so that we are not restricted to circular hiking routes. We can get further afield and explore areas with no public transport services.

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.

What to Bring:

Hiking

  • Footwear - Comfortable walking boots, trainers or sturdy worn-in shoes. Thicker soles are best. Trekking sandals only suitable on some routes, as most have sections of loose, stony ground.  No flip flops. 
  • Clothing - Loose, comfortable clothing or sportswear.In cooler weather, bring a couple of thin layers rather than one thick top as they are easier to remove if you get warm. A thin windproof jacket is advisable on higher altitude hikes (see individual walk details)
  • Rucksacks - The best way to carry spare water, clothes, suncream etc. 
  • Water & Snacks - Bring plenty of water (allow 1/2 a litre per person per 5km in the hottest months). Refreshment stops usually scheduled for the end of your walk and also midway for longer walks. Bring your own if you will need something else en route.
  • Other - sunglasses, suncream and a hat or cap in the hottest months
