Evening

The friendly atmosphere of our Guided Walking & Sightseeing holiday continues into the evening.

Enjoy a drink whilst listening to our leaders explaining the next day's walk and after the evening meal, you may like to take a stroll into the village and visit a local bar, have a coffee or just relax at the hotel talking to your fellow guests.  Your leader will also be checking for any local events going on nearby.

Itinerary

Our experienced leaders offer the choice of two different walks each day. Choose the option which best suits your interests and fitness

We provide flexible holidays. Choose easier walking one day and harder the next or just explore independently or relax around the resort.

Our leaders are friendly and welcoming making your holiday fun and sociable.

On our walking programme we’ll have the opportunity to discover the magnificent valleys that make up the southern Sierra Nevada. Nearby we can enjoy snow-topped mountain views as we follow good routes through the Poqueira Valley with opportunities to visit the three whitewashed villages. We’ll stretch further afield over the cols for amazing panoramic views and a visit to the Serrano ham haven of Trevelez. Around the nearby villages of Pitres and Busquistar we’ll sample the GR7 to further our exploration of this last Moorish enclave of the Iberian Peninsula, rich in flora, blossoms and fed by the omnipresent acequias. The dedicated sightseeing day offers a day in the mesmerising city of Granada, with its spectacular Alhambra Palace complex, beautiful cathedral and narrow maze of medieval streets.


HF Holidays walks grade 2 easyEasier walks: 5 to 8 miles (8-13km) on good paths, with some rocky sections. Up to 1,500ft (450m) of ascent in a day.

Please note that the itinerary outlined is provisional and could be subject to change. A finalised itinerary will be available at the resort and every evening your leaders will talk to you about the next day’s walks.

Local area

There are a number of interesting local shops within a short walking distance of the hotel, some selling local handicrafts, ideal for gift shopping.  The attractive village streets are mainly cobbled and worth an explore.
