Our guided walks breaks start from our doorstep for a range of different routes, some mountainous, some flat. Or we will provide transport and take you to a different location some days. Walking in Andalucia is stunning, with an endless vista of green rolling hills studded with perfect chequered lines of olive groves. Clear lakes, pine forests, streams running through wild flowers, carpeting valleys and rocky hills causing the typical winding roads are just some of the delights! Here in central Andalusia you can walk the length of the ‘Malaga way’ if so desired ! Late lunches will be taken at restaurants en route or after the walk, or pack lunches will be provided on trails without restaurants or cafes. Late afternoons can be spent relaxing by the pool or wandering around the town, which has plenty of historic interest, sampling tapas and local wines. Delicious evening meals will be served at the hotel around 8 – 9pm giving you time to digest your late lunch!
A full itinerary will be designed around your requirements and interests. Our walking guide Alison, lives in the area and will be looking after you and taking you through some stunning scenery. Length of walks can be tailored to the groups levels of fitness and requirements and can range from 5 – 15 k.
