Alpujarra and 4 Sierras Walk

A moderate to challenging walk of great variety ideal for Spring and Autumn walking holidays. It can be combined with "Winter Sunshine Walking" or "Sierra Nevada Trek" for two weeks in Andalucia.

Based in the Alpujarra, we walk in the low coastal range of La Contraviesa, the mighty Sierra Nevada, the highest range in Spain, the dramatic Sierra de Chaparral and the rugged Sierra de Las Guajares.

The different geological areas that we visit during this trek give rise to a huge diversity of vegetation and habitat. Masses of flowers carpet the hills in Spring and in different months there is almond, peach or cherry blossom. Brilliant colours and tasty fruit tempt the Autumn traveller, and you may collect sweet chestnuts to roast over the evening log fire. Sandstone hills on one walk contrast with limestone crags on another while deciduous woods give way to forests of Mediterranean umbrella pines. Even the architecture in the high Alpujarras is different from that in the sub-tropical coastal mountains.

We walk between 15 and 25 Km each day on a variety of terrain from steep rocky paths to soft trails in river valleys and you will need to be reasonably fit. We run 1 week itineraries and walks are led by an experienced guide.

Included: All accommodation, transport to trailheads, guide, 5 walks, all breakfasts, 5 dinners, 5 picnic lunches and plenty of wine, tea and coffee....... all for £540 per person per week until March 1st 2018. - How to Book
