Hikers Heaven in Southern Spain

Andalucia is a real paradise for hikers.  Beautiful countryside, breath-taking views and a chance to admire varied flora and fauna. Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic, Spanish Andalucia boast wonderful climate which makes it possible to hike and walk almost all year round.

Land of Diversity

Andalucia’s distinguishing feature is also incredible terrain. Nowhere else in Spain you will have such a diversity of landscape. From deep green forests in Sierra Aracena or Sierra de Cazorla to the amazing lunar landscape of the Tabernas Desert in Alameria. From the tropical coast in Nerja to the snow kingdom of Sierra Nevada. From sunny Estepona with more than 320 sunny days a year, to Grazalema with the highest rainfall records in Spain.
