The scenery around the town is utterly stunning. In higher elevations, you can get a splendid view of the entire Guadalhorce river basin. The Guadalhorce is the principal river of the province. You can also find a couple of impressive man-made lakes, which are used as reservoirs, nearby.
Rural tourism enthusiasts are in for a treat in Álora. The Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, with the Guadalhorce River cutting through it, is the perfect setting for practicing canyoning, hiking, cycling or even bungee jumping for the more intrepid.
