Discover the scenery of the Costa Tropical on this special walking holiday

Spend a week admiring the spectacular scenery of the Costa Tropical with a full programme of coastal and countryside walks taking in beaches, valleys, villages and caves. There will be four full day walks, and an orientation walk of approximately two-and-a-half hours, ranging from moderate to strenuous and covering distances ranging from approximately 11km to 15km. All walks will be led by an experienced walking host, and accompanied by a backmarker.

Your walking programme

Almuñécar A local orientation walk of approximately two-and-a-half hours and starting from your hotel will take in the seafront, old town, castle, Roman ruins and botanical gardens of the pretty Andalusian town of Almuñécar. 

Maro and the Caves of Nerja: Choose to view the famous Caves of Nerja (extra charge), or alternatively walk through Maro town and the surrounding fields. The two groups will rejoin for the main walk into the nearby National Park.

Alpujarra: With its spectacular snow-covered mountain peaks, the Alpujarra is one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. This walk centres on the spa town of Lanjaron and includes a gradual, lengthy scent to reveal breathtaking views of the valley 

Frigiliana and Cómpeta: From one of the ‘white villages’ of Andalusia, walk across rolling hills, through two delightful villages and into a fruit growing area.

Coastal walk: Trace coastal paths to Salobrena, climb to the castle grounds with views over the coastal plain and return via the beach and a hidden valley. (Please note this route may be subject to change due to adverse weather conditions).
