Our guided walking holidays in Andalucia are suitable for active singles, couples & small groups of friends. The holidays are for 7 nights and most start from Malaga airport which is well served by low cost flights from the UK & northern Europe.
The walks are the result of years of personal experience living in Spain and exploring the stunning Parques Natural of Andalucia and remote Rif mountains in Morocco.
Spanish Steps walking holidays are all high in content and value, with most guests coming by way of recommendation or repeat visits. Many may not have been on an organised walking holiday before but are likely to be regular walkers or be fit from other activities.
