With easy access and a superb climate, the Alpujarras traverse the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada which rise to over 3300m and offer excellent and varied walking opportunities. Often with snow capped peaks until late June, the Sierra Nevada provides a stunning backdrop to the lower slopes of the Alpujarra range. Here, narrow roads wind their way around the folds in the mountains connecting whitewashed villages clinging to the hillside or perched over a ravine. Few cars, however, pass this way.

The villages were designed for four legged transport as opposed to four wheeled. Views are far reaching along the Alpujarras, down to the deep valley below and across to the remote Sierra de la Contraviesa. Granada, with its famous Alhambra Palace- a reminder of the Moorish influence on the region -provides a cultural extension to your walking holiday.

The Walking

Our excellent choice of walking routes often follow ancient paths linking villages of the Alpujarras with the opportunity to explore their narrow streets or to linger over a cooling drink in a shady café before continuing on your way. Ancient olive terraces, flower lined paths, deep ravines and trails up into the Sierra Nevada extend the walking possibilities for something a little more strenuous.

Self-Guided Walking

We have two bases from which to explore the Alpujarras each with their own exclusive set of walking notes. From Casa las Chimeneas our walks largely start

and finish in the village. Most of those that do not David the owner will be happy to take you to the start and collect you at the finish of the local walk free of charge others a little further afield will incur a local small charge. From Finca Los Llanos some can be walked from the village. There is a local bus but the times are not walker friendly so we have designed the walks to be suitable for a car which is included in the price.

Walk Grading

Self-Guided – Moderate. Total for standard week ignoring variations:- Ascent 3372m, Descent 3375m, 60 miles.

March to June is superb for wild flowers clear skies and a vista of snow capped mountains- an ideal time for keen photographers. From September to November the harsh summer lights starts to mellow as the landscape turns golden yellow and mornings become soft and dewy. July and August we feel the summer heat is too intense to make walking a pleasure.
