Walking Highlights of Subbéticas, Granada & Alpujarra

Explore some of Andalucía's most beautiful landscapes on foot, from sunlit olive groves to the hills of Granada and the mountain villages of the Alpujarra.

This trip is a curation of some of our best discoveries from 20+ years of rambling in Spain's sunny south. Your route blends short walks and rest days with longer hikes into the great outdoors, with plenty of time to go at your own pace and soak in the views.

A walking holiday this may be, but we're delighted to also be able to share with you the medieval masterpieces of Córdoba's Mezquita and Granada's Alhambra, as well as front-row seats to our favourite flamenco show.
