Itinerary

Start Berchules.

Circular walk from the hotel door, following a stone-laid mule path with panoramic views.

Descend into Guadalfeo Valley to the market town of Cadiar; climb through hamlets to Juviles, site of Mozarabic 10th century castle.

Walk along Roman paths through La Taha to explore Moorish villages hidden in a deep gorge.

Scenic walk from the white village of Trevelez (the highest village in Spain at 1550m); return through working cortijos to see how the traditional way of life continues.

Walk through a great variety of landscapes, from moonscape to the verdant upper reaches of Berchules' Rio Grande.

Free day in Granada and optional visit to the Alhambra Palace (those wishing to visit must purchase a ticket in advance).

End Granada.

Additional Information

The Sierra Nevada is Europe’s second highest mountain range and towers over southern Spain. Much of this dramatic landscape is a protected biosphere reserve, rich in wildlife and home to many endemic plant species. Here, and in the neighbouring Alpujarra region, we are rewarded with some of the finest walking in Andalucia; from ancient chestnut forests to lavender and broom-clad moorland and white-washed Moorish villages. A night in the city of Granada, home to the magnificent Alhambra Palace, is the perfect end to the week.
