A day walking in the High Sierras
Hiking in this region is an absolute delight. There are a huge number of forest trails in Las Alpujarras, easy strolls for every member of the family or more vigorous and lengthy hikes. Even around Buenavista and Orgiva, there are pleasant walks through olive groves and along the Guadalfeo river. Exploring this region on foot is an opportunity to be part of nature, breathe the pure air and let go of all the stresses of modern life.
Or test your mettle on mountain tracks
If cycling is more your thing, then you have come to the right place. Cycling is a popular activity in this part of Spain, both road cycling and mountain biking. Bikes can be hired locally and there are guides available, with knowledge of the best routes, if you would like to take a trip out either individually or in a group.
