This is a excellent guided walking holiday for people who don’t want to move hotels as often as our other holidays. We walk for 5 days walking from hotels and transferring to and from walks. This week takes in 5 beautiful walks right across the Sierra Nevada and the Las Alpujarras. Walking some of the best routes in the region.
All the walks are different with varying landscapes from the high mountain walking to down in the warm valleys of the Las Alpujarras. We will walk from between 10km to 18km of days of about 5-7 hours with stops.
On the Friday we will transfer to Granada in the morning and go straight to the Alhambra for a 3 hour visit before we can go to the hotel and check in. From here we go to one of the best restaurants in Andalucia for a beautiful meal overlooking the Alhambra. Then a few hours free time for an hour long flamenco show in the Casa Del Arte.

As you will be partaking in an activity holiday, it is a condition that you are adequately covered by the relevant insurance for medical and holiday cover. You will be asked to send proof of insurance when you have booked a holiday with us. We also recommend that you obtain your EHIC card which enables a citizen from the EU to health care anywhere within the EU.
Most holiday insurance companies include walking as part of their normal policy – just make sure it goes up to 3500m if you are walking Mulhacen.
All our guided itineraries have airport transfers included. We recommend Malaga to fly into. Contact us and we will discuss with you the pick up options available.
Of course you can. If you are willing to share a room then there is no problem but if you want your own room there is a single supplement charge applicable.(120 Euro for 7 nights)
We keep our guided groups to 8 people. We feel the group works better in a small more personalised group.
We have never cancelled a week but we will inform you if the group on your chosen week is low on walkers.
No, the choice is yours. If you want free day then just inform us at the time and we can hopefully give you other options or if you feel a walk maybe too much for you we can usually arrange a shorter version for you.
All the hotels can cater for any diet. If you have a particularly allergy, just let us know and we will make sure the hotels are aware.
