Córdoba to Granada Inn to Inn Walking Vacation

Shepherd tracks, olive groves and whitewashed villages, bookended by great Moorish capitals. This is classic Andalucía, experienced in your walking boots.

Start in Córdoba with a private tour of the Mezquita; end in Granada and a visit to the Alhambra. In between enjoy six distinct walks through the subtly shifting scenery of the little-visited Sierras Subbéticas, staying at three delightful family-run rural inns.

Day 2 - Settle into a pretty village and start to walk

You now move on to Zuheros, strikingly perched above the olive groves. Sit down for a welcome drink before hiking into a gorge, vultures swooping and sheep bells gently tinkling all around.

Day 3 - Hike in the footsteps of shepherds

Today's scenic hike follows centuries-old tracks, some used to drive livestock across the countryside and others along which the old 'olive train' once chugged. Stunning vistas abound!
