Stunning views
Sep 2019
Last year, at the end of September we spent 5 days walking in the Alpujarras region. We visited Lanjaron, a spa centre, where we stayed in the hotel ESPANA.
Also went to Treveléz, well-known for its mouthwatering curred ham jamon serrano. The village of Treveléz is the highest in mainland Spain, at 1,486m.
The best of best was "Walk 6128": CAPILEIRA-BUBIÓN-PAMPANEIRA
length: 3.8miles. It was a lovely sunny day, stunning views and amazing white villages.

Stunning white villages spread out amongst this much overlooked area
Oct 2019
This is our second visit to this area. The walking is amazing and on all our walks we had the place to ourselves. There are organised tours but we walked by ourselves. The scenery is majestic and although some of the routes are challenging it provides some of the best walks we have done.

Spain's mountainside white villages
Mar 2019 • Couples
These three picturesque villages hug the mountainside and can be seen miles away. The road up is easy, but you climb a lot. And once there, the walk remains hilly. But it's a setting you are not going to see anywhere else. Walk a bit, stop for coffee and watch the people and look at the mountains in the distance. Have a delightful local lunch. Wander tiny, winding streets. Just go.

Great walk in the mountains
Mar 2019 • Couples
We walked from Pampaneira to Bubion and on to Capileira, the walk although up hill is easy enough. You can continue on to do a 5 hour loop, unfortunately we missed the path and ended up walking down an old river bed this eventually joined us up with the path we should have been on, but cut off a good hour of the trek.
Lovely countryside and villages, wear good shoes, take a bottle to refill in the fountains, all the villages had them. Unless you are used to trekking or quite fit stick with following the path between the villages there and back doing the loop requires a lot more stamina.

Lovely villages
Jul 2018 • Couples
These villages with white buildings are one of a kind. In some of them you can see hand made products such as large doilers, straw baskets and colorful carpets. Plenty of restaurants too. Prepare your camera!

Great day trip from Granada

We did a day trip to Bubion, Capileira, and Pampaneira and enjoyed this break from the city. We found a great cafe in the sun with great food and beer and just relaxed and enjoyed the view.

Day trip from Nerja
Jan 2019 • Couples
Together with our excellent guide David we saw an interesting and beautiful part of western Alpujarras. We were two couples, both inspired by Chris Stewards book "Driving over lemons". It was also great to experience the Moorish heritage in the villages. / Ingemar & Ann-Sofi, Sweden

Far Exceeds Expectation
Nov 2018 • Couples
There are lots of pleasant surprises in this tour. Foremost is the amazing vertical nature of the area with deep gorges ,precipitous valleys and beautiful white towns which cling to the mountainside. However, our tour also stopped for lots of views, coffee, chocolate, a great sampling of local jamon and sausage with local wine, as well as a 4 course lunch with lots of always good red wine. All inclusive. So, our guide kept us informed on all matters, and our driver was smooth and expert on all mountain roads, which often were challenging. Top marks!

Amazing day trip to Las Alpujarras from Granada by affordable and kind taxi driver!
Jun 2018 • Couples
I highly recommend Oscar Javier with Taxi Granada if you are looking for an easy and accommodating way to get to see the beautiful Alpujarras villages during your stay in Granada! He gave us helpful tips and info on the way there, waited for us while we hiked from Capileira to Pampaneira and then drove us back to Granada all for a very fair price! Call 658 26 27 49 for the best and easiest way to get to Las Alpujarras!
