Exploring outdoors Spain

I like hiking and travelling. Spain, and particularly Andalucia, is perfect for outdoor activities because of the mountainous terrain so close to the sea. I'll be posting my weekly adventures and a few from the past. If you like life outdoors and like Spain you'll hopefully enjoy this blog.

Rio de la Miel summer trek
Friday, February 11, 2011 @ 10:19 AM

This is a flash from the past: last summer's trek to Rio de la Miel near Algeciras. Travelling towards Tarifa from Malaga on the N340, there is a sign for “barriada del Cobre” and that leads to the start of the route. It's an incredible place at such proximity to Algeciras - the contrast to the industrialised city is unbelievable.

The route is easily done with children, and is very interesting as it is dotted with old mills that were in use until recently. It's advised to bring sandals and a swimming suit to fully enjoy the ambience, reminiscent of jungles and more tropical places than Algeciras!

Enjoy the fotos:
