Caminito del Rey, Malaga
El Caminito del Rey, also known as ´The King’s Little Pathway’ just so happens to be along the steep walls of a very narrow gorge in El Chorro, in the province of Málaga. The 8 kilometre path, considered to be the ‘world’s most dangerous walkway’ was in fact closed for many years due to the disrepair, but, since 2015 it has been up and running making a lot safer. The path runs through the beautiful Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, which is exactly 700 metres deep with the Guadalhorce River running along the bottom of it. Perhaps this is not something for those afraid of heights, but if you’re willing to face your fears, this is definitely the way to do so.
Canyoning in Rio Verde, Granada
If you love anything water
If you love anything to do with water, Canyoning might be the best thing you’ve come across in Andalusia. With some of the most beautiful crystalline waters of the region, mystical cascades and breathtaking cliffs of up to 11 metres, it’s quite the escape from normality. No matter what level you are, there is most definitely a tour guide for you that will make your experience more than what you could have hoped for. There are many companies that offer excursions as it is a very rural location so you will no doubt find the best one for you, all you’ll need after that is a change of clothes after all the jumping and you are set to go!
Caving in Nivar Cave, Granada
Another thing you could take part in would be exploring through the underwater world within the Nivar Cave’s just outside of Granada. The instructors that join you on the trip will teach you how to abseil and progress in a narrow cave whilst giving you the opportunity to rappel down amongst stalactites and stalagmites! You are not under any pressure whatsoever when in those caves, you take your time in what you do and take in the beauty of the experience without feeling pressured, after all it’s not very often you can do these things right?
Now for the craziest of all.. The one activity where you’ll have to try that extra bit harder to give your mum a heart attack when you tell her, so please make sure she’s sitting down. It is within the bucket lists of many people and yet many people will never do it for a variety of reasons, However why not really get out of the comfort zone you’ve been stuck on for so long and tick off one more item on your list? In Cadiz, you can take the skies with professional divers and skydive from 3500 metres up in the sky. The dive will last roughly 40 seconds but without a doubt will be the most unforgettable 40 seconds of your life, after that the overall flight with the parachute will last 5 minutes until you finally reach land again and decide you want to do it again...
