Full description
See the Garganta Verde, a spectacular canyon carved by the Arroyo del Pinar River, located about 3 miles (5 km) from Zahara de la Sierra village, in Sierra de Grazalema park. It gets its name from the dense vegetation covering vertical walls that reach up to 1,300 feet (400 meters). Do a 2-hour hike on the 1.5-mile (2.5 km) trail running alongside the canyon. Keep an eye out for wild olive trees, fan palms, mastic trees, goldfinches, stonechats, and warblers, and glimpse the rock faces of La Garganta. Stop at the El Arroyo de Bocaleones observation balcony to appreciate the gorge’s full size. Here you can see one of Europe’s largest breeding colonies of griffon vultures.
Continue to the 'white village' of Zahara de la Sierra and admire panoramic views, overlooking Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. With land covering more than 43 square miles (70 square km), the town is surrounded on all sides by hills ranging between 1,000 to 3,280 feet (310 to 1,000 meters). Visit a castle built on a rocky peak high above the lake’s turquoise waters, from here you can admire the white houses below.
This tour is ideal for all ages and skill levels.
