5 days centre-based walking and 1 free day. Altitude maximum 2000m, average 1400m.
6 nights hotel with swimming pool in the village of Berchules. 1 night in a 3 stars city-centre hotel in Granada. Both hotels have en suite facilities.
All breakfasts, 4 lunches and 6 evening meals included.
This centre-based walking week takes us through some of the finest scenery and villages in the sierras, with magnificent long distance views and many fantastic walks on the mountain flanks, ridges and in the valleys.
We reach some fairly high altitudes and on one day, walking from the highest village in Spain, the route can reach 2,000m. Whilst the gradients are reasonable, you should be prepared for some short steep sections both uphill and downhill.
You should be reasonably fit before you join this trip, though the walks are not long and the pace is leisurely.
On most days we will walk for 5 to 7 hours on a mixture of forest roads and paths, some of which are rough, stony and difficult underfoot. Although we are in Andalucia, most walks involve some wet sections whatever the season, so good walking boots are essential.
The heat can make the walking quite demanding at times.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 12, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
No experience is necessary; those who take weekend hill walks in areas like the Peak District or Cotswold’s at home should manage a B-grade trek; good health and reasonable fitness are important. These Moderately graded departures are either fairly easy medium-duration walks or harder, shorter walks.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
