Qué, ¿hay ganas o no?
Y es que esta experiencia de barranquismo en Río Verde, en pleno Parque Natural de la Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama (cerquita de la frontera entre Málaga y Granada), además de ser una de las más buscadas, es la que más disfrutamos nosotros.
Y no es para menos; todo lo que hemos puesto en esa lista de ahí arriba es verdad. Mira->
In a nutshell: a 3 in 1 experience with cultural immersion and, as icing on the cake, an eco-picnic at the end. Let’s go over all the ingredients in order:
This is the Comares via ferrata
We’ll meet in Comares or, if you prefer, at the bus station in Nerja where you can go with us in the van from there. Once we arrive, we’ll do some fun icebreakers in order to get to know each other better. At the same time, we will tell you everything you need to know in order to enjoy the activity to the fullest.
Haven’t done any via ferratas yet? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything you need to know. Have you done a few already? Let’s see how you fare with this three in one! Whichever the case, once the gear has been strapped on and everything’s ready, we’ll start with the first via ferrata, consisting only of a very simple rock ladder. And from there on… the fun begins.
The other two via ferratas are a bit more demanding. They have ascents over steel steps on the rock and several bridges. It is a vertical traverse combined with other horizontal ones, featuring views of beautiful landscapes where nature is the star of the show. There is nothing to worry about on this trek – both vias ferratas have several alternative routes that we can follow and we will choose a track that aligns with your skill.
Once we have experienced the adrenaline rush of walking over the rocks and the void of passing through one of the bridges, we will head to the village of Comares, a historic town at an altitude of more than 700 meters known as the balcony of the Axarquía and the Costa del Sol. Can you imagine the pictures you will be able to take?
In addition to the pictures you will take, you will also gain a lot of knowledge during your time with us. There are many traditions and curiosities about this white-painted villa, which we will explain to you while traversing the winding streets during the cultural visit. When we finish, we will go back to the van and have an eco0picnic with drinks and locally sourced snacks, all while we reflect on our experience. Before the day is over (or the next day at the latest), we will send you the photos and videos that we have taken with our GoPro, so that you can take home more than just a nice souvenir.

So, what are the next steps if you're interested?
It’s a very simple process:
¡Al loro! Puedes subirle el nivel a esta experiencia y hacerla mucho más exigente
Sí, existe una opción superior que solo aceptamos bajo petición expresa. Consiste en una experiencia por el mismo tramo pero desde un punto más arriba, con más saltos, más rápeles y más intensidad. Dejaríamos la furgoneta en una parte superior del río, andaríamos 25 minutos y el descenso por el barranco sería de 5h30m aproximadamente. El final es el mismo: ecopicnic y bebidas.
La exigencia física es muuucho más alta, así que solo te recomendamos que nos la pidas si estás muy en forma y ya tienes experiencia haciendo barranquismo.
Esta opción exigente tiene un coste de 75€/persona, solo está disponible bajo petición y lo puedes hacer desde aquí:
Who is behind all this?
Fernanda and David at the mic!
We love our work, enjoying this rich geography in an entertaining way and sharing it with those who want to do tourism in a different, more sustainable and responsible way! We’re in!

Frequently Asked Questions
No, but you do have to be well prepared physically. You have to be fit.
No, you don’t. We will help you at the hardest spots, because we are expert guides in risk management.
Two of the vias ferratas have several adaptation options. Don’t worry, we will choose the most suitable for your skill.
Comfortable clothes to do the via ferrata, suitable footwear. Although we provide food and drink for the eco-picnic, you are welcome to bring any other snacks or beverages you need. We especially recommend you bring something extra to drink – the water we provide is a half liter plastic water bottle. In short: if you can bring your own drink, all the better (and if it’s in a sustainable container, that would be peeeeerfect).
No, you will have to arrive at the meeting point of your choice at the indicated time. They are the bus station in Nerja at 09:00h, in Velez-Malaga at 09:20h or directly in the parking lot of Comares at 10:00h.
We only organize this experience on Tuesdays and Thursdays from September to May.

If you let us know 5 days in advance or more, yes: the full amount. And if it is due to a medical reason, if you give us proof of cancellation, we will refund the money even if you don’t let us know 5 days in advance.
Of course. We will make you a voucher, so you can surprise whoever you want
