    Join our included excursion into the impressive Alpujarra, situated just behind the snow covered mountains of Sierra Nevada, the highest mountain range of the Iberian Peninsula. We head into the mountains, past fields and orchards, to the valleys of the Alpujarras, where the variety in flora and fauna is unique in Europe.

    In the Sierra Nevada National Park you will find curious villages that seem to hang from the cliffs, forgotten in the time. The Moorish legacy is evident in the architecture of these unique hamlets, with terraced clusters of grey-white box-shaped houses with flat clay roofs - which are still common in the Rif and Atlas mountains of Morocco.

    During the day, we enjoy an easy walk, descending from the top the magnificent Poqueira river ravine to Bubión and Pampaneira. Here the coach will meet us and take us to the highest village in Spain, Trevelez, famous for its ham, where we will have a tasting of the local produce.

    First we will visit the famous Caves of Nerja, with impressive caverns of stalactites, originally dwellings of the troglodytes.

The Old Quarter is of Moorish-Mudejar origin and is, without doubt, one of the best preserved in the province of Malaga. A walk through the village at any time of day will take you back to times gone by.

    After lunch we will visit the “Costa Tropical”, where we will enjoy the landscape of Salobreña and Almuñecar, pretty whitewashed coastal villages, crowned by Arabian fortresses.

    This bustling country town has a personality all of its own and dates back to Phoenician and Roman times. Upon arrival, we visit the caves museum of Popular Customs.
