Nerja Chillar River Walk Itinerary

After meeting your guide at the scheduled time in Nerja's Plaza Balcón de Europa, you'll climb aboard a bus and head away from the town in the direction of the sierra, or mountains. Reaching the natural park, you'll make a stop to fill up your water bottles before you set off on your adventure along the riverbed of the Río Chillar.

Hike through the park to an old hydroelectric plant, or "Fábrica de Luz", before continuing along your route up the Río Chillar. You'll soon reach the first waterfall where you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a dip in the water to refresh yourself.

Shadowed by the rock faces towering up to 65 feet (20 metres) over you from either side, you'll hike further through the narrow corridor of the gorge, admiring the spectacular natural scenery around you, popularly known as "Los Cahorros", which means a passageway between sheer cliffs.
Whether you're on your own, with friends or family, this is undoubtedly one of the most fun walks in the region. There are times when you'll have to wade through the water as it reaches your knees and places where the gorge is so narrow that if you stretch out your arms you'll touch both walls!
Throughout your river walk, you'll come across numerous natural pools filled with sparkling waters just inviting you to jump in, splash about and refresh yourself! While you bathe, take in the incredible landscape of the Sierras de Tejada, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park.

At the end of your unforgettable walk along the Chillar River, you'll make the return journey to Nerja, where you'll be dropped back off at Plaza Balcón de Europa.
