Full description
Discover one of Europe's richest botanical enclaves, through picturesque villages and a breathtaking mountain landscape.

La Alpujarra is an extensive valley running across the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada and the mountains of the Contraviesa Lújar, the Mediterranean coast and the Sierra de Gador. White buildings pepper the rugged terrain, matching the snow-capped peaks down amid the lush foliage.

The first stop is the 19th-century seaside resort of Lanjarón, where you'll follow the flowing waters to Orgiva, the crossroads of the region and capital of La Alpujarra. From here continue through the magical towns of Caratuñas, Pampaneira, Pitres and Trevélez, the highest village in Spain, famous for its exquisite Iberian hams.

Via Bubión, you'll arrive in Capileira, the picturesque, white village where you'll enjoy the splendid views while dining on a relaxed Alpujarreño – the traditional lunch of the region.

This was a brilliant way to explore the mountain region around Granada and the food and wine were delightful! Our guide (Angela) was great fun and very informative moving with ease from Spanish to English. The bus was very comfortable and there were lovely people on the tour. The pick up arrangement was carefully organised as well. In all, a marvellous day!

Great opportunity to see another side of Granada

Beautiful quaint villages, stunning views, rich history, jamón, jamón y más jamón. There's just enough free time in each village for you to explore on your own-- try the spring water from the town fountains & imagine what life was like in these remote mountains hundreds of years ago. An amazing day!
