In order to give you some idea of the range of hikes/walks which the Axarquia region has to offer, here are some ideas for a week's stay at Los Curriches, split into Easy, Medium and Tough itineraries.

Easy
Day 1 - Short 6km circular walk in the Montes de Malaga forest just south of Los Curriches. Relax back at Los Curriches in the afternoon.
Day 2 - Sightseeing in Malaga old town, with a climb up to the Castillo de Gibralfaro and the Alcazaba. Perhaps visit the Picasso museum or the Cathedral.
Day 3 - A short drive north west from Los Curriches to the El Torcal park. Although the 2 marked routes are quite short, the rock formations surrounding the routes are amazing and you could easily spend 3 hours on the walk, especially if you spot some Ibex or Griffon Vultures along the route. Either spend the afternoon sightseeing in Antequera, or return to Los Curriches to relax by the pool.
Day 4 - Sightseeing in Granada. This certainly won't feel like a rest day, as the Alhambra Palace is huge and takes 3 or 4 hours to wander around. If you also visit the Moorish quarter, you will definitely be worn out by the time you return!
Day 5 - Relax by the pool.
Day 6 - Visit the white village of Frigiliana, down towards the coast. The town is quite touristy, but is still definitely worth a visit with its quaint, twisty, narrow streets, and there's plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to stop at. Visit the nearby Nerja Caves in the afternoon.

Medium
Day 1 - Take a walk from the village of Canillas de Aceituno in the Sierra de Tejeda park. There's a wonderful 7km circular walk into the mountains south of Maroma from there, which can be extended into a 10km walk if you are feeling more energetic when you reach the halfway point.
Day 2 - Hire our mountain bikes and explore the numerous tracks of the Montes de Malaga forest just south of Los Curriches.
Day 3 - Go sightseeing to Ronda. The bridge is spectacular, and there is a lot of walking involved to fully explore both sides of the spectacular gorge through the centre of it.
Day 4 - A wonderful 7km circular walk into the Camarolos mountains north of Los Curriches. There's quite a steep climb up through shady oak forests, but the views of the Axarquia from the top are terrific, and there are some great rock formations along the way.
Day 5 - Relax by the pool or go sightseeing in Malaga, Cordoba or Ronda.
Day 6 - We love this walk in the Sierra Tejeda mountains, north of Maroma. This out-and-back walk starts at 1100m, from a remote campsite called Robledal, and climbs steadily south along a fantastically scenic ridge, into the high mountains near Maroma (2069m). Because it's an out-and-back walk, you can turn back at any time, but it's worth going as far as the back of the river valley for the views (which makes this about a 9km walk). If you have the energy you can continue to the top of Maroma itself, which adds another 3km to the hike.

Tough
Day 1 - See Day 4 of the Medium itinerary. You could extend this walk to a 12km walk if you feel you need more of a challenge, but be careful not to overdo it on the first day, as the rest of the week is tough!
Day 2 - Tackle the wonderful Tajo Almendron mountain and river valley walk in the Sierras Almijara. This circular walk is only 11km, but it is rarely flat. There are great mountain and sea views from the top, and a wonderful shaded river valley walk on the way back. One of our favorite walks! This hike is described in full via this link here.
Day 3 - How about a stunning 10-15km hike around El Torcal and up Camorro Alto to view the park´s weird and wonderful rock formations?
Day 4 - Climb Mount Maroma (2069m) from the Robledal campsite, via a 14km circular route (coming back down the ridge described in Day 6 of the Medium itinerary). This involves 1500m of climbing, so it makes for a long, tough day, but the walk gives you 360 degree views and is well worth the effort.
Day 5 - Relax! You deserve it!!
Day 6 - Medium length walk in the Montes de Malaga forest, before returning to relax by the pool.
