This is rural Andalucia at its best –  rarely visited and difficult to find but just a thirty minute train journey from the coast. The adventure starts  with a 2 hour river bed walk to the top of the chasms. To make the journey you’ll need harnesses, abseiling kit and a 20m. (static hydrophobic preferably) rope. Don’t forget the wetsuits – it’s bitterly cold in the water deep in the gorge of which some parts never receive the sun. The gorge itself takes about five hours of swimming and walking and if you want to float out in style take a canvas airbed and raft out down the Guadiaro all the way to the tiny country station of El Colmenar…
