Responsible Tourism

As part of our Responsible Travel Policy, Competa Hikes is unique as a company in offering education of the language, the culture and the region.

Competa Hikes mission is to give back to the community of this region with a special focus on educating children, the next generation.

Competa Hikes is running a program with local education centers to take groups of children and their parents on walks, once a month and free of charge. The walks focus on teaching the children about their environment – animals, the flora and fauna and to teach them about the history of the environment.

Our objective is not only to bring environmental awareness and education about nature to grass routes, but to promote healthy activity in children from a young age. Competa Hikes has recently instigated and sponsors an under 8’s rugby team with Nerja Rugby Club. This venture brings sports and team building, free to children across Axarquia, which has never been done before.
