trek in andalousie

    By this trek in the south of Spain, we will discover the country-side that makes Andaloucia so original. We will visit its most beautiful cities, and we will bathe in its culture rich in local traditions.   
    From the long streaching olive plantations as far as the eye can see, we will cross magnificant limestone Sierras which hide the numerous white villages :
Sahara de la sierra, Grazalema, Ronda... we will be charmed by their winding narrow streets and the liveliness emitted by spanish culture.

    Of course we won't forget the two most well known cities in Andaloucia ; Seville and Granada, reknowned for its arabic influenced architecture represented by the Giralda and the Alhambra.


   From the summit of the Torrecilla, in the sierra de Nieve, we will admire the mediteraneenne coast, Gibraltar, as far as the Morocan mountains...

    In the middle of the week, we will pass by Nerja a beautiful little town where we can swim in the sea and enjoy the coast.


    Afterwards, we will head towards the Sierra Nevada, the highest mountain range on the Iberian peninsula. We will walk two days among the Alpujaras, a well known area in the region for its white mountain villages.

    After a year of living in Seville, the opportunity to create a trekking adventure in the Andalucian play ground couldn't be missed. With its charm and culture it's a pleasure for every trekker.

    The cost of this wonderful excursion is 790 Euro per person, this includes the cost of accomodation, all meals, transport during the week, organization and guided tours. Transport to Seville, and individual insurance are at your own expense. However, I can help you to find good flight and transport deals. The ticket to visit the Alhambra is not include in the price.
