More information about what to expect on this Andalucian walking holiday including when to go and how comfortable you can expect to be.
When should I go?
December and January are the rainiest months of the year, July and August are very hot. Apart from this, really any time of year is good.
The walks are reasonably strenuous over several consecutive days. Daily distances are around 15km (9/10 miles).
The Aracena Hills give the impression of being rolling and gentle but in fact there are some steep ascents.
Altitudes are low and conditions underfoot are generally good. You should enjoy walking or at least be ‘walking fit’ in order to really enjoy this holiday.
Small inns and hotels, twin/double en suite rooms which are comfortable but not luxurious by any means.
You should expect your hotels to be comfortable, characterful and friendly.
Your main bags are taken for you from place to place leaving you to walk relatively unencumbered.
Completely independent but supported.
Our transfer guide meets you when you arrive.
While you are walking you can relax knowing that support and help is a phone call away.
We provide you with all the maps, walking notes and local information you will need.
