Hiking Adventures Overview
We offer guided hiking as an alternative activity during our bike holidays and on standalone hiking vacations.
The Alpujarra and the high Sierra Nevada is a walking paradise. There are endless trails, ranging from the ancient paths between the villages to remote trails that traverse the high sierras.
The routes vary, depending on the make-up of the group, the weather, and the time of year. We have a huge range of altitude, from 2200 metre mountain tops to 700 metre valley floors. You’ll pass through a variety of micro-climates on the way.
We usually walk from the front door (at 1650 metres) straight onto the best Sierra Nevada hiking trails. Some days we complete a loop back to the farmhouse and other days we finish our hike much lower and transfer back up to the farmhouse in the support vehicle.
Hiking days run from 10.00 to around 16.00. Being a centre-based hiking vacation, unlike a point-to-point bike tour, you’re not under time pressure to get to the next place. The average day is about 18km in length.
To get the most from these walks you’ll be a fit and sure-footed hiker!
