The south of Spain offers an infinite number of experiences and adventure activities of all kinds, whether at sea, in the mountains, in the snow or even in the air, and that’s why today we bring you a list of the best adventure sports to do in the south. Grab a pen and paper and don’t miss a thing!

 

Sea and Mediterranean Coast

The great variety of its landscapes and beaches make the Mediterranean Coast an ideal destination to practice water sports at least once in a lifetime.

Málaga, known for its Costa del Sol, has numerous outdoor activities throughout the length and breadth of its territory. One of the most beautiful natural landscapes is Nerja, where waterfalls and beaches are the protagonists. You can go kayaking in the sea, paddle surfing, canyoning and even boat trips and snorkelling on the cliffs of Nerja and Maro.

All these experiences are designed for you to enjoy with your family, friends, children or work colleagues.

In Tarifa (Cádiz), you can try the fascinating world of kitesurfing or defy the wind with wingfoil. Whether you are an expert or you are thinking of starting out in these sports, with our courses adapted to your level, you will become an expert. The best techniques and tips for managing your body and your movements await you in this paradise.

Continuing along the route in C├ídiz, you will find the Do├▒ana National Park. This protected natural area is home to a unique biodiversity in Europe and you have the chance to get to know this park from a perspective like never before. From kayaking, paddle surfing or on a 4×4 route, our expert guides in the area will explain the importance of taking care of the environment and protecting it while you enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.

Mountain and south

If you’re more of a mountain person, we’re sure you won’t want to miss out on the charms of the southern countryside.

In Extremadura, the Jerte Valley is famous for its vast expanse of cherry trees, which paint the landscape white when in bloom. In this destination, you can follow the river on hiking trails, go canyoning or kayaking and paddle surfing on its lakes. We recommend the guided hiking route through the Garganta de los Infiernos, a unique experience to get to know the Jerte Valley up close.

The Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas Natural Park is the largest protected area in Spain and the second largest in Europe. This Biosphere Reserve offers the best of the outdoor world, adventure and nature in equal measure. You will enjoy the mountains and the Guadalquivir river in all its splendour with sports such as paddle surfing, rafting or the via ferrata ‘El Rayo’.

Another option is to opt for the mountain activities offered by Yeste, in Albacete. Here you can go caving or opt for a via ferrata or hiking. If you’ll allow us to give you some advice, caving in the Cueva de los Chorros is an adventure not to be missed. You will explore the cave in all its splendour, both aquatic and fossil, with abseiling, climbing and lakes. We are sure you won’t regret it.

Snow adventure

Although it may seem the opposite, in the south, during the cold and winter months you also have the possibility to practice snow sports or to venture into them for the first time.

In the province of Granada, in Andaluc├şa, we can find Sierra Nevada. In the heart of the Sierra Nevada National and Natural Park, you will be able to enjoy the snow and the incredible scenery that these mountains have to offer.

You will be able to venture into both skiing and snowboarding in private lessons that are tailored to you in a totally personalised way. And don’t worry about the little ones, the classes are designed for all levels and ages from 2/6 years old.

Fly high in the Canary Islands

What could be further south than the Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands are a TOP destination to travel to if you are looking for good weather all year round. Famous for its beaches and waters, they allow you to practice water sports and adventure to the fullest. However, today we are not going to talk about this, but rather about the air activities they offer.

From Tenerife, via Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and El Hierro, you will enjoy the islands and the landscape from the heights with paragliding flights in incredible locations such as the Teide National Park, the beach of Las Canteras, the island of Lanzarote or the area of the Gulf in El Hierro.

As you can see, the south is full of possibilities for active tourism, so don’t think twice and go on this outdoor adventure!
