Walking in Andalucia and especially in the Sierra de Aracena park is certainly one of our favourite activities. We share all our personal experience and knowledge with our guests and all the necessary equipment, literature and extra information about walking in Andalucia is at your disposal. We provide our guests with GPS tracks, detailed maps and guidebooks with photos made by us. In our library you can find books about flora and fauna of the Andalusian area as well.
With over 1000 km of paths that connect villages all the way through this Natural Park it is a wonder that this little known part of Spain is still so unspoilt.
The variety of walks is tremendous – from a gentle stroll through hamlets around the larger villages to a full day’s hike taking in some of the highest peaks of the park.
Using Alájar as a base for your walking we can provide you with our very own route notes in written or photographic or gpx format. We have developed circular routes setting out from Alajár of varying length and difficulty, so there is no need for a car and can also provide notes for further afield where we can arrange taxi transfers to these walks or you could hire a car if you prefer to have more independence.
Why Walk in La Sierra de Aracena?
Climate: temperate mediterranean, the nearby Atlantic helps to make it milder in general, summers are less sweltering than in nearby areas
Relief: rolling hills with gentle, less rugged relief than the rest of Andalucian Sierras
Height: modest altitudes from 90 m to 1053 m (the highest point of province of Huelva)
Nature: because of our particular climate lots of the flora and fauna here is quite rare to the delight of our visitors.
