Family adventure travel in Southern Spain

We are thrilled to share one of our Spain family adventure travel programs and holidays!

This is thanks to this beautiful family for whom we designed a customized adventure family vacation last summer. An activity holiday filled with fun and kid-friendly outdoors experiences in the Southern Spanish nature.

Best accommodation options for family adventure travel in Southern Spain:

This family chose their accommodation very wisely. They stayed at the much-acclaimed Hacienda San Rafael. This hotel has beautiful stand-alone villas with private and semi-private swimming pools which are ideal for families with kids.

The property is located in the countryside between the cities of Seville and Jerez. This corner of Andalusia has excellent weather and gorgeous family-friendly cities like Cadiz, Seville and Jerez. Also it features many picturesque hilltop towns such as Ronda and Arcos de la Frontera and beautiful mountains and beaches. Because of this, it makes one of the best family vacation spots in Spain.

Recommended tours and adventures for active family travel in Southern Spain:

We knew that this was a very active family with young kids and that they wanted to enjoy some fun outdoors activities together. This was fantastic news indeed as we instantly came up with great adventure ideas that are 100% suited to both adults and kids.

Family cycling in the Southern Spanish countryside:

On the first day we took them on a cycle ride through the rolling hills and olive groves of the province of Cadiz. This is a gorgeous ride that we love to take ourselves with our friends and families. It is delightful as it is slightly downhill. Besides it offers beautiful panoramic views of the Southern Spanish countryside.

We managed bikes for everybody except for the youngest member of the family, for whom we got a nice and comfortable carriage. We all made a great team of cyclists and everybody had a lot of fun exploring the rural areas of Andalusia by bike.

Family rock climbing and wild swimming in Southern Spain:

On the second day the family adventure continued with a very special plan: rock climbing and… wild swimming! This time, the adventure took place in the mountains of the province of Malaga. These mountains area ideal for outdoors activities and they are an easy drive from Hacienda San Rafael.

First we took our guests rock climbing and everybody proved to be an excellent climber!

Fortunately we have Carlos in our team, who is an experienced climbing instructor and a great climber himself. Carlos took care of the family on the second day, along with his colleague Antonio. This resulted in extra help and assistance for the climb to be extra safe and fun for both kids and parents.

When the sun started to hit the wall where everybody was climbing, the temperatures started to rise. Then our guests started to feel like cooling off somewhere nice…

We had anticipated that so Carlos and Antonio took the family to a gorgeous river pool nearby with cold blue waters ideal for a refreshing dip!
