Villages of Andalucia Walk with Madrid & Coast

Our popular Inn to Inn hike through the forests and white villages of an Andalucía seldem seen, bookended with storied city streets and quiet Atlantic beaches.

From the wide avenues and grand tales of Spain's great cities, appreciate a slower pace of life on a self-guided walk through the Sierra de Aracena and a self-drive journey along the quiet Costa de la Luz. This is an eclectic mix of storied cities, cobbled paths and coastal views, of days spent hiking in solitude, exploring with your guide and discovering under your own steam. As the scenery changes, some things remain a constant - beautiful hotels, delicious food, time aplenty and our complete local support, taking care of every detail from start to finish.
