Hiking in Grazalema

8 days, from £615 pp

We have put together this itinerary on the bases of flying in and out of Seville. However, this start/end point can easily be swapped with other airport cities like Malaga or Granada, or you can even fly in one and leave through another. This is a two centre trip, with recommended hikes easily accessed form either place. We can adapt this itinerary to include more or less, whatever suits you best.

Day 1 - Seville

We can arrange a transfer for you from the airport direct to your hotel. Spend the rest of your day at your own leisure, we have plenty of recommendations! Have a sunset drink on one of our favourite rooftops with panoramic views of the city and then head out for tapas under a warm sky. We can provide you with our favourite spots to eat in the city.

Day 3 - Zahara de la Sierra

Today we recommend a rewarding 14.5km circular hike; ‘Zahara de la Sierra Circuit’. This hike is a fantastic introduction to the area and gives you amazing views of the two gorge’s. There are also dozens of other trails to choose from so you really are spoilt for choice!

Day 4 - Rest day

Spend today at your leisure. If you’re interested in exploring by bicycle then we can arrange bike hire for you. If you’d like to explore this hilly area on two wheels but plan to save your legs for the hiking, then we can arrange electric bikes for you!

Day 5 - Garganta Verde hike and paddle

We recommend heading out on the Garganta Verde route this morning. This is a really rewarding hike in the coolness of the gorge with Griffon Vultures soaring in the thermal columns. An afternoon/evening paddle on the lake is a brilliant way to take in this extraordinary scenery and rest the legs!

Today we recommend you head to the historic town of Ronda. We can provide you with a walking route so you can take in all the main sites.

The ‘Grazalema Southern Circuit’ is a top recommended route that will see you summit two of the parks tallest peaks! Loop back round to Grazalema for a delicious lunch before heading back to your hotel.
