Our guided walking adventures are suitable for singles, couples and groups of friends. Many of our guests have not been on a walking holiday before but are likely to be regular walkers or be fit from other activities.
Most of the holidays are of seven night duration but may be extended by adding other options. The holidays are the result of years of personal experience living in Spain and walking in the Parques Natural of Andalucia and the Rif mountains in Morocco. All are high in content and value, with most guests coming by way of recommendation or repeat visits.
