Full description

Embark on a full-day trip to Trevélez, the highest town in the Alpujarras, and discover the ham curing process with a tour and tasting inside a factory. Have lunch at an Alpujarran restaurant before visiting the village of Pampaneira.

Start with a pickup in downtown Granada and a drive towards Lanjarón. First, stop at the historic Nasrid Bridge of Tablate to gain an understanding of the relationship between the Moriscos and Alpujarra.

Next, find a unique viewpoint from where you can contemplate the Poqueira Valley, the Guadalfeo Valley, and the Sierra Nevada while taking memorable photos. Sample the mineral-rich fresh cold water from the Fuente Agria Spring.

Admire the stunning Chorrerón waterfalls before discovering the ham curing process inside a factory in Trevélez followed by a tasting. Experience the traditional gastronomy and an Alpujarran lunch. On the way back to Granada, pass through impressive landscapes and visit Pampaneira.

    Tour was marketed as English tour, however, the driver/guide provided limited insight/commentary in English. He behaved more like a driver. For the price we expected to hear more about background, history and what we were seeing. Destinations were interesting, and the lunch was good. We would have preferred some free time in the villages.
