5 Days



Please, let me invite you to a fantastic Christmas program in Sierra Nevada, an amazing spot of the Alpujarra Region. 

The region of Alpujarra is a place full of history and nature. It extends along the amazing provinces of Granada and Almeria, both lying on the Sierra Nevada’s southern slopes.

Sierra Nevada, which means “mountain pasture” in the Arabic language, is the second highest massif of Europe. That is why its average altitude change is about 1.200 meters. This mountain massif forms a natural wall among the Alpujarra and the Granada town.

Therefore, during this trip you can enjoy the warm hospitality of the local people of the forest villages. Besides that, you will also spend a full day in the city of Granada. There we can visit the Moorish Alhambra Palace and delight our palate with the typical “tapas”.

At the end of this description you can find the complete day-by-day itinerary. They will be 5 great days hiking and venturing ourselves in the most historical and natural places.

Available departures: December 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30. Live a different Christmas in Sierra Nevada!
