Activities and Excursion at The Marbella Sober Home
Activities and Excursions
At The Marbella Sober Home we promote a balanced recovery and believe that fun in recovery is not only possible, but quite important. During active addiction many years are spent using and isolating. This means becoming disconnected from a normal and enjoyable way of living.
Our focus is simply to show our clients how to have fun again whilst being sober. It is a great opportunity to relax a little bit after a thorough weeks work, and really see for yourself that fun in recovery is possible.
Optional excursions and activities include but are not limited to:
Inaugurated in 1993 and located in the natural park Las Medranas, Wakeboardcenter is the furthest south facility in Europe and for that reason we open almost all year round. We have an area of 2690 feet, which allows 9 people to ski at the same time. The cable-ski system helps you practice and train yourself to water ski in an easier, simpler and more economic way. Due to its 5 pulleys, it is a cable of little difficulty opposed to the conventional cables of 2 pulleys. After the reforms and innovations that were carried out during 2013, Wakeboardcenter is considered to be one of the best facilities in Europe, still trying to improve every year incorporating better modules and additional services.
Located on our doorstep, this stunning go kart track is one of Europes finest and is within a 60-minute drive from our facility. It is great fun, and an amazing experience. The 4 strokes ar ethe started carts and they hit a top velocity of 80 kn p/h and the 2 strkes go over 100 km p/h. Sounds scary? Well it can be. Great fun.
The availability to hike through the mountains in Andalucia is endless. On our doorstep we have La Concha and further a field, only an hours drive from the faculty, we have the option of a 5 hour hike through waterfalls and over mountain tops.
