Summary of the best Hiking Tours Andalucia has to offer

The key here is VARIETY! Our guided walking holidays are designed to allow you the flexibility to enjoy the huge range of walking holidays that Andalucia has to offer.

The descriptions below tell you what to expect from each type of walkiing experience. There are then links to the relevant holidays and tours. Remember that you can do one sort one day and something different the next, making best use of your time and inclination. This would suit gentle ramblers and hikers to the more commited and hardened fellwalker and trekker. Pick and choose. Mix and match. If you fancy a change or a feeling like an easier day then we can suggest alternatives.

High Mountain (over 3000m)

With the Sierra Nevada on our doorstep we are spoilt for choice here. There are 27 3000m+ peaks here. Many are remote and serious but some make suitable day ascents. Be prepared for rough ground and long distances. Multi day trips can be undertaken utilising guarded (Poqueira Refugio) or unguarded huts along the way. We even make use of magnificent lakeside locations to provide high camping opportunities. The high mountains are usually assessible to the walker from May to October inclusive. Going can be tough and some effect of altitude may be felt.

- The Ascent of Mulhacen highest mountain in mainland Spain - in one or two days (overnight Poqueira Refugio.
- Ascending some of the high 3000m+ mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada in day or 2 day trips.
