Søren Kierkegaard is on my mind when I hike:
'Above all, don't lose the desire to walk
I walk to reach my daily well-being
I walk from any disease;
I've given my best thoughts while walking
And I know of no thought so heavy that one cannot walk it away
When you keep walking, everything will be fine'
Hiking in the Frigiliana area is mountain walking. It's steep mountainsides, narrow paths and stunning natural scenery - sometimes we see Ibex ibex, vultures and dolphins; and we've even seen really big tuna jumping right out of the water in pursuit of large schools of sardines - the schools of sardines were very reminiscent of the formations of the large flocks of starlings in Denmark.
We can go on longer hikes for several hours, or shorter hikes where everyone can join in - and those who are not good hikers can wait at the lunch restaurant on the beach.
On the walks, you have to concentrate a lot of the time on each step you take; it takes you forward and clears your mind of thoughts, at every step, every time.
When I guide walks, the enjoyment of the landscapes is paramount.
We have frequent short breaks and a longer lunch and rest break where we eat packed lunches.
It is always possible to combine relaxed and challenging tours during your stay.
We encourage you to bring good footwear with rough soles suitable for loose surfaces and a small backpack for water, food and a change of clothes.
