The trip met all my expectations The walking was excellent and the company brilliant
Our leader was enthusistic, patient and extremely knowlegeable.
Getting to the top of the path ---- every day!!!
Would recomment him to anyone as a guide and leader
Book early to gain entrance to the Alhamra--- if you really really want to go because its full, ie really full of tourists!!!!!
I would recommend this trip to any walker
Great walking in a dramatic and historic landscape which isn't as well known as it deserves to be. This trip has a variety of different walks with lots of different aspects to keep your interest. The scenery is dramatic - lots of crags and gorges with views of the snow topped mountains, but there is also the history and culture of the area. The villages are scenic but not twee, this is a working agricultural landscape after all, and the terraces and ancient moorish irrigation system give the landscape a distinctive character.
The variety of walks was a real high point. By walking in a different valley or at a different altitude on each walk every day had its own distinct landscape and character.
The group leader did a great job of guiding us around the area. As well as the basics of looking after the group and getting everyone around the hikes he gave us some insights into the local way of life and history that really brought the landscape we were walking through to life.
A fantastic week of varied walking in sunny Andalucìa! Great hosts, great tour leader, great fellow company. I would highly recommend this trip!
For me there were many moments! The wall to wall sunshine and temperatures already in the mid-20s in April certainly helped! The variety of stunning scenery and walking terrain throughout the trip was excellent and each day's walking seemed to get better and better. Visiting Granada was a great conclusion to the trip and La Alhambra in particular is not to be missed!
George was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the local area. It was a real pleasure finding out more from him about the way of life in Las Alpujarras, its nature and regional/national history.
If you are planning to visit La Alhambra in Granada, make sure you book tickets as soon as you book the holiday as they go quickly. Try to get an early morning or evening slot to avoid the tourist hordes in the middle of the day. Although the days were very warm-hot in mid-April, you will need some warmish layers to wear in the hotel on a night as it can get chilly.
This holiday was perfect for a week at Easter - I would highly recommend it. The temperature was just right (20 - 25 degrees in the mountains), making it ideal walking conditions. Remember to bring lots of sun cream! Other reviewers have mentioned that it is not walking in the Sierra Nevada itself but in the foothills. In actual fact, it is a great mixture of the two and there is certainly more than enough dramatic mountain scenery to wonder at.
Yes, this trip is centre based so if you would prefer to take off any of the days, you're free to do your own thing. Obviously we hope you'll take advantage of all that is on offer, but it's still a holiday, not a forced march!
