Top extreme sports locations in Andalucia

1. Skydiving – Fear Factor 5/5

Most of us have dreamed about flying and believe it or not it’s possible to safely jump from a plane at 1500 feet, fly through the air and live to tell the tale afterwards. As life experiences go, skydiving is the ultimate rush. Anyone can enjoy this extreme sport either through being securely attached to a qualified instructor (tandem) or doing it solo. Some people jump once or some jump 1000 times, but everyone agrees, it’s the most thrilling extreme sport. There are many good Skydiving schools in Southern Spain, but for top-quality instructors, check out Sky Dive Spain based in Seville: https://www.skydivespain.com/

2. KiteSurfing – Fear Factor 3/5

A long stretch of golden sand along Southen Spain’s Atlantic coast has been dubbed “The kiting capital of Europe” after the highly popular extreme water sport has made the small Spanish coastal town of Tarifa it’s home. The basic idea is using kites of different sizes and lengths to catch the wind and pull a surfer over the water on a small board. It can be an exhilarating experience as surfers test their physical limits against the wind and waves, but it’s the element of danger that has thrill-seekers coming back each summer for more. For those testing the waters, a beginners course is mandatory, and Tarifa has a massive number of Kiteschools to choose from with Addict kite school probably being one of the best: https://www.addictkiteschool.com/

3. Snowboarding – Fear Factor 3/5

“Snow” and “Spain” are two words you’d rarely use in the same sentence, but surprisingly enough a mountain range in Andalucia called Sierra Nevada is one of the biggest Ski Resorts in Southern Europe. The Sierra Nevada slopes are long and full of powdery snow making it the ideal destination for winter sports. Snowboarding could be explained as the thrill of surfing but on snow and in the middle of winter. The rider stands on the board with his or her left foot forward, facing one side, and both feet are attached to the board. For the more experienced boarders, there’s plenty of jumps and long ski runs to get the adrenaline flowing. Snowboarding equipment and gear and can easily be rented at the resort, and there are also some excellent ski schools. Speaking from my personal experience, the British Ski Centre ticks a lot of boxes and are bi-lingual: https://skisierranevada.co.uk/

4. White Water Rafting – Fear Factor 4/5

If you are looking for an extreme experience, then white water rafting is the one for you. Rafting has become a popular water sport in Spain. Steering through rough waters, and passing over treacherous rapids, you soon realize what an adrenaline rush rafting is. The Guadalfeo river in the province of Granada in Andalucia offers one of the most hardcore rafting experiences anywhere. It’s a grade IV in terms of difficulty, and it’s not for the faint-hearted. The trip consists of a 4km warm-up, followed by a 6km stretch of madness. If that’s got your heart racing contact Activities Marbella for more info: https://www.activitiesmarbella.es/

5. Scuba Diving – Fear Factor 3/5

The anticipation of adventure and the rush of adrenaline while submerging below the surface when taking that first Dive into the deep blue ocean is a unique feeling. Once below, you can experience the beauty of an underwater world teeming with life and colour in near weightlessness. It can be peaceful and serene floating effortlessly through crystal clear water. There are many excellent dive schools along Spain’s Mediterranean coast making the Costa del Sol an unbeatable place to learn how to Scuba Dive.

We had desires to invest in Spain, but the distance has slowed us down. For several months, we were in contact with several real estate agents.

This beautiful meeting was decisive; it is a person who proves the real qualities of professionalism. She took charge of us from beginning to end. Arrived in Spain in Malaga, she accompanied us for visits to different apartments, and we found a rare pearl thanks to Celeste.  Mr and Mrs Catteau from France

Celeste is the reason we bought our property. Her knowledge of the market and her ability to find gems in the residential real estate sector are second to none.

Jo and I would like to thank Celeste for the very professional service that she gave us when we decided to move from France to La Alcaidesa. She was spot on in understanding our requirements and, when we found the right property,  she ensured that the whole conveyancing process went through very smoothly and quickly. But what impressed us was that, after we moved in, Celeste ensured that we discovered all the local services in the area. This was our 5th house move and we can honestly say that she helped to make this the easiest. Mike & Jo from the UK
