Land Rover Tours

Land Rover Tours

 

Join us on an ‘off road’ discovery

Let us take you on a journey through a beautiful landscape of deep valleys, high mountain plateaus, olive groves, riverbeds, historical towns and villages, and along the way discovering the local fauna and flora.

Using the Land Rover Defender, undoubtedly one of the most famous 4x4s ever built, we’ll take you on a unique tour of the interior of Andalucía. Using a combination of dry riverbeds, gravel roads, dusty tracks, and mountain roads, you’ll also have chance to experience a great 4x4 adventure!

We run our tours every day of the week from March to January, and offer you the half day Comares trip (max. 6 hrs) or the full day Sierra de Loja trip of (8.5 hrs).   

Booking information can be found at the end.


comares tour

 Lakes, riverbeds, olive groves and an exhilarating drive up to Comares  

Looking north up the great valley from Velez Malaga you’ll see the small village of Comares, with its many white houses precariously perched on a steep ridge. This commanding position has given Comares a unique history, from the early Greeks and Phoenicians who came in the 7th century BC to the Moors who settled here in 8th century AD. Comares stood as a defensive hill fort for the Moors for many centuries until the Christian Reconquista finally arrived in Comares in the 15th century.

Comares in the 21st century now enjoys tourism and agriculture as its main income, and our tour introduces you to the northern part of Comares, starting at Lake Vinuela we travel through the fertile valleys, along the dry (or often wet!) riverbeds, and then gently ascending through fields of olive groves on its northern approaches.

Along our way we get chance to see the different flora and fauna that thrive in this area, and upon our ascent to Comares we are offered spectacular views south towards the towns of Velez Malaga and Torre del Mar, and to the North we see the imposing ridge of mountains that run from east from El Torcal to La Maroma.

In Comares you’ll have chance to enjoy a local tapa along with a cold drink or coffee and admire the impressive views from the Balcony of Axarquia. You can choose to enjoy the views, or alternatively join us for a guided tour of Comares (approx. 30 minutes) that explores this beautiful village and its interesting history.

The cost of this tour is €120 for 2 people, €150 for 3 people and €160 for 4 people. Collection from Torrox is €10 per person.

sierra loja tour

Neanderthals, Moors and into the heart of the Sierra de Loja

A full day of fun and adventure, we start this tour with a climb up from Punto de Encuentro towards the Zafarraya Pass. This unique geological feature, which is visible from the coast, provides a natural route through the mountains for onward travel further north. On our journey through the pass we stop and explore a Moorish castle, and also glance at what was once a Neanderthal dwelling. The top of the pass allows us to admire the  magnificent views back to the coast.

After a short stop in Ventas de Zafarraya we start our climb up in to the Sierra de Loja. This huge massif covers over 200 km2 with most of the plateau above 1000 mtrs. From this high vantage point we have the opportunity to view the western side of the Sierra Nevada and the northern slopes of the Tejeda, Almijara & Alhama natural park.

We’ll have chance for a short walk, and to admire the geological features of this plateau, then set off on our return. Our journey home retraces our path to Ventas de Zafarraya, where we then take the disused railway track to our last stop of the day, Bar El Cañuelo, where you can enjoy a cold drink and food from the menu.

The cost of this tour is €150 for 2 people, €180 for 3 people and €190 for 4 people. Collection from Torrox is €10 per person.
