Chris Stewart Alpujarras Walking Holiday Overview

These week long hiking tours in the Alpujarras are based at Casa Ana in Ferreirola. Run by Chris Stewart, writer of the famous travel book “Driving Over Lemons”

The Alpujarra is one of Spain’s most spectacular and unspoilt walking areas, with hikes in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and rambles through the meadows, orchards and white villages.

The holiday is based at Casa Ana, a gem of a guest house on the edge of Ferreirola, with magnificent views of the Trevelez river gorge. The house recently featured in the Times top 50 places for a holiday in Spain.

And who better to guide you than Chris Stewart, author of “Driving over Lemons” and himself a keen walker. Chris invites you to explore the area and share his deep knowledge (and great stories) about the history, culture and nature of the Alpujarra. Chris is available on 4 or 5 weeks per annum.

Highlights include:

The walking groups are small so early booking is strongly recommended.

Walking level of challenge

Expect altitude gains of about 350m and 6-7 hours of walking per day.

Bring sensible clothing and good hiking boots.

Hiking poles are useful.

Sun hats, sun glasses, sun block and a water bottle are essential.

Choice of walking grades: (What do these grades mean?)

The week includes!
