Horseback Riding Routes in Malaga

We all know or have heard of Malaga. The capital of Malaga is one of the best known and most visited in the south of Spain and its beaches are among the best nationally and internationally.

The Costa del Sol is undoubtedly one of the most valued coasts, but Malaga is much more. In this region, located in Andalusia, you can find some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Spanish geography.

In Malaga you can find natural places that seem to be taken from a movie, such as the Torcal de Antequera, a rocky landscape that will make you feel like the protagonist of a West story.

On the other hand, we can also see ravines and mountain landscapes that have nothing to envy to those found in other areas of Spain. In addition, also in Malaga we can visit some of the most beautiful villages of the whole Andalusian region, such as Ronda or Nerja.

Although this province has more to offer, we cannot forget its beaches. Beaches of sand or stone, whatever you like. Watching the sunrise, sunset or walking the beach at any time of the day is always a good option.

What are the best areas for horseback riding in Malaga?

The beach

The Malaga beaches are among the most famous in Andalusia and undoubtedly one of the best. If you ride along the coast of Malaga on horseback you will take with you the memory of one of the best landscapes that you can find in the whole region.

Ride with the sun and the sea in the background, feel the sea breeze on your face and listen to the sound of the waves. In addition, you can start or finish your route in any of the cities along the coast, among which is the capital of Malaga, Marbella or Torremolinos. You can also visit some of these cities and do some sightseeing on foot, or eat at a beach bar and enjoy the sun and the sea in the best atmosphere.

The Sierra de Grazalema

In the west, on the border with Cadiz, we find the Sierra de Grazalema. In this mountain range we can not only enjoy walks in a natural mountain environment, but we can make routes for all levels.

In the Sierra de Grazalema we find more wooded landscapes, with paths hidden among the trees and streams that in the rainiest seasons run between them. In addition, for those who like the open countryside, there are also meadows and rocky areas where you can observe the whole environment without a single tree in sight.

If all this is not enough reason to make a route through this area, we can also take the opportunity to visit some of its villages, with the typical aesthetics of the region. Among these villages is Ronda, one of the most visited villages in Andalusia.

El Caminito del Rey and its surroundings

Who has never heard about and wished to do the Caminito del Rey. This tourist destination is located in this mountainous area of Malaga. It is true that the walking routes through this place are spectacular, however, the horseback riding routes are even more so.

In this area you will be able to ride through landscapes marked by the mountains and by the reservoirs that we find in this part of the region, Peñarrubia and Guadalhorce. Take the opportunity to visit the less known and less traveled parts of the incredible natural landscape of this part of the region on the back of a horse.

This is one of the areas with the greatest variety of landscapes. We can make routes through the Vega de Antequera, where we can find fertile land surrounded by olive trees.

In addition, we can visit the Torcal de Antequera. This landscape looks like the set of a movie. It is a rocky landscape, which you would not expect to find in this area, because it contrasts completely with everything that surrounds it.

If you like the world of horses and want to feel like the protagonist of a movie, you definitely have to make a route through this area.
