Benahavis Riverwalk – A Hidden Paradise

Benahavís is a really popular area for river walks, as some of the Mojo team tried walking the Río Guadalmina last summer. River walking is a great way to get to experience nature that is not accessible in any other way, and the route in Benahavís is extremely accessible. All you need are swimwear and sensible shoes that are firmly in place and can withstand getting wet. Too wet, they get it! In return, you will experience it as a hidden paradise to wander through the cooling water that trickles past your feet. Depending on the time of year, there may be more or less water in the river bed. When there is a lot of water, you have to swim through some of the passages, so it is a prerequisite that you can swim reasonably. The daredevils, however, have ample opportunity to frolic with rock jumps in several places during the route.

The actual trip that the Mojo team was out on takes about two hours to finish. Near where the route starts, you can park your car in the large parking lot. From here you walk a little while to where the river walk route starts. There is river walking and then there is canyoning. Both types of tours are available on the Costa del Sol, but where you can go river walking yourself, canyoning definitely requires an experienced guide, as there are rappelling and rock jumping here. In addition, canyoning requires equipment in the form of wetsuits and helmets. River walking is relatively equipment-free.
