Activities in Ronda
The area around Ronda offers a multitude of outdoor activities: hiking and biking both being very popular, as well as mountain climbing, canoeing, birding, horse riding, paragliding, tennis and, on the coast, golf. We have provided a brief overview below, but you can find more detailed information and our personal recommendations within our blog.
Whether you're a serious cyclist or a family having fun, the beautiful and varied terrain of the Serrania de Ronda contains the perfect ride for you. From a gentle jaunt along a dirt track or country lane to a mountainous climb on wonderfully-smooth asphalt, there is a route through the stunning scenery that will be just right for you. We can provide you with maps and suggested tours during your stay, or let us know your plans in advance and we will put you in touch with a local tour operator.
One of the best ways to enjoy the magnificent and diverse landscapes of the region is on foot, and again, there's a path suitable for everyone. Looking for a leisurely ramble? Delight in a gentle 2-3 hour wander downhill through pine forests beside the rio Guadalevín to Benaojan, have lunch and return by train. Searching for a greater challenge? Dedicated hikers can appreciate the section of GR7 footpath passing through the region. Simply contact us for more information.
Can you see yourself here? Practising yoga, accompanied by the sounds of nature: the birds, the bees visiting the lavender, the tinkling bells of sheep and goats, and the rustle of the leaves in the breeze. We can arrange an instructor to visit during your holiday or if you would like to learn more about bringing a group to La Cazalla for a week of yoga and relaxation in our naturally-secluded location, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. We feel the best time for yoga outside is during May or September.
Whether you are a dedicated twitcher, a professional bird photographer, a relaxed occasional birder or an absolute orni-beginner, this is a great area for all bird lovers. There are around 250 species of bird in the Serrania de Ronda area, with birds of prey, flamingos, resident and migratory species. You can enjoy a little bird-watching from our property, a specially arranged 2 hour introduction to the birds you can see at La Cazalla and - watch this space - we are in the process of erecting our very own hide! We would also be delighted to provide you with information on guided nature tours.
The Serranía de Ronda is one of the latest additions to the official wine routes found throughout Spain, and its future is looking bright. With wines from the area being valued with increasing regard both locally and internationally, the region of Ronda is well worth being labelled a first class destination for enotourism. Experience lunch at one of the local bodegas (wineries) accompanied by a sampling of their own wine or take a tour visiting several of these small family-run boutique wineries.
