How is this activity organised?

The word of David, the guide: “We will pick you up at the bus station in Nerja or at the bus stop in Canillas de Aceituno.

Once we arrive, we will start with a 40min walk through the beautiful landscape of the Sierra de Almijara. On arrival at the river, we will change clothes and start to descend the river. The descent will be through natural slides, abseiling and waterfalls.

We will cross waterfalls and pools of crystal clear water. On the way we will see many aromatic plants, old lime kilns, mines. We will also probably see wild Iberian goats, and the famous suspension bridge from the river!
