Our fifth festival will take place in 2017: September 21st-24th. After the publication of the 2017 program, you may enrol for the 2017 Walking Festival.

The 2017 Festival

Joost experienced walking guideCómpeta, 65 km east of Málaga, is a walkers’ paradise! Come and enjoy it with us during our fifth Walking Festival. Also this year we chose several new fantastic walks. The principle will stay the same. Each day you will have the choice between an easy walk of ± 3 – 4 hours or a moderate walk of ± 4,5 – 6 hours. Each day you can change your choice. We will walk with guides in groups of no more than 25 persons. You may also walk self-guided if you have a gps.

The Cómpeta Walking Festival is the occasion to discover more of this beautiful walking area and to meet old and new walking friends.
