Welcome to Walking Alpujarras Holidays
Guided and Self Guided Walking Holidays in the Alpujarras
Come and enjoy a walking holiday in Las Alpujarras region of Andalucia. The terrain drops from the jagged heights of the Sierra Nevada to forested gorges and citrus groves; on the sierra’s lower slopes sits the Alpujarras region, which has a series of tiny, whitewashed Moorish villages clinging precariously to the side of the hills. These villages provide our hotel accommodation and allow us to sample the delights of simple village life, good wines and local tapas. Indeed this is the area brought to life by Chris Stewarts famous book "Driving Over Lemons".
Between the Sierra Nevada and the coastal ranges you will find a depression through which runs the rivers Guadalfeo, Adra and Andarax. These are fed from numerous springs which are a product of the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada, producing crystal clear waters enriched with minerals. Many of the villages have public drinking fountains where you can enjoy an ice cold glass of mineral water or fill a bottle for later.
The Alpujarras offers walking for everyone, plus you can get from the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada to the Coast is less than an hour. The contrasting views, the rich heritage, as well as the open friendliness of the people, makes this an ideal location for a walking holiday, whether you are on a guided walking holiday or prefer self guided walking tours.
