Activity description

Buitreras Canyon is one of the most incredible activities in Malaga province. A day of full adrenaline-inducing canyoning will make you feel very excited.

Buitreras Canyon, situated in El Colmenar de La Frontera, one hour from Marbella and Estepona in the province of Malaga, is an intermediate canyoning trip of around 5 hours. Before touching the water, you will visit the Puente de Los Alemanes, a bridge that straddles the walls of the canyon, at a height of 60 meters above the river. From here, you will see part of the route that will take you through the canyon, and start to get excited about the adventure that awaits you.

For this activity, a medium-to-high level of physical and technical skills is required. You will be swimming and walking in some areas, and also doing abseiling down sections of rock face higher than 10 meters. You will do different jumps, from between 3 and 12 meters high. These jumps are optional.

The descent of Buitreras Canyon is considered the most spectacular of the Andalusian canyons. Admire the different rock formations as you make your way through the canyon. In some places the canyon is so narrow that you can touch both walls at the same time, and in others, the rocky walls are more than 100 meters high.

You will enjoy a unique experience in this rugged landscape!


Approach: 45 min.
Descent: 6:00 approx.
