Requirements and conditions
Andalusia is not flat
For our Day-hiking program no alpine experience or skills are required, please read the descriptions for each individual walk. It is important to know the difficulty of your walk. The difficulty is defined by lengt, elevations and the condition of the terrain. Hiking trails in Andalusia are often not as good as for example in the UK.
Appropriate sure-footedness, sufficient condition, and some hiking experience should be present.
Health problems must be communicated beforehand
The hikes are designed so that you can enjoy the beauty of the scenery in peace. This is not about physical challenge, our main focus is on experiencing nature and landscape, sociability, relaxation and fun of walking. Our walking program is structured so that the young and young at heart can join as well as the very fit walkers.
An important prerequisite is respect for nature. We leave no trace and take no "souvenirs" from nature.
Equipment for day hikes:
- Proper hiking boots
- Rain and sun protection
- Warm clothes for cold season
- Water bottle and rations
- Walking sticks if you need them
The offered hiking weeks offer different levels of difficulty, especially for hiking weeks, it is essential to read the exact description.
