This is a great introduction to walking in the mountainous Alpujarra region and a perennial favourite with participants. Enjoy a week of varied hikes in good company, exploring this beautiful and inspiring region where winter is like April in England and the autumn arrives with fruits to gather, trees ablaze with gorgeous colours and glowing sunsets. (In October average temperatures are still in the twenties). The Alpujarra, perched on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada, is still criss-crossed by a network of mule paths, ancient drovers roads and old Moorish silk routes which wind through the valleys and mountains. Amongst the wooded hillsides is a still-functioning system of arab acequias (irrigation channels) which waters terraces of olive, sweet chestnut and walnut trees. The whitewashed mountain villages, with their mazes of tiny streets and covered alleys give testament to the Berber influence. You will be accompanied by guides who live here and have an intimate knowledge of the region

Daily walks will vary in length and effort required, but the emphasis is on relaxation and enjoyment. Massages and other complementary treatments are available from the Cortijo Romero practitioners. Easter week brings mild weather and fresh spring growth in the fields and village gardens. Step into Summer at the end of May takes us higher into the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains following in the steps of the shepherds who bring their flocks up into the cooler air and the peace of high meadows and pastures. Autumn Walking in October brings warm, bright light, and fruits and nuts to gather. Not forgetting a visit to the sea-side nature reserve and an optional trip to Granada to visit the Alhambra or the superb Arab Hammam - oh, and the fabulous vegetarian cuisine offered by the Cortijo Romero kitchen!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY: "Both Paul and Fiona were excellent walk leaders.

I appreciated their calm and relaxed manner as well as providing their advice/guidance to less able walkers !" (W.R. Winter Walking 2019).
