Walking in Andalucia | Sierra Circuit 7 Nights

Sierra Circuit 7 nights
Through our contact with other hotels and restaurants in the area we can also offer you a couple of different walking packages that takes you hassle free around the park, staying at different hotels, with luggage transfers, restaurant recommendations for the evening and information on where to buy provisions for lunch should you prefer not to book full board.

Our Sierra Circuit holiday starts and finishes in Alájar walking around the Sierra de Aracena natural park in an anticlockwise direction.

The character of the villages has changed little over the centuries, their history reflected in their architecture and the landscape surrounding them. You walk along Roman cobbled tracks, glimpsing abandoned watermills and ancient hill forts left by the Moors. You will see villagers working their on small allotments, hear the ringing of goat bells among the oaks and chestnuts, and the bubbling of the many streams and springs which abound in these hills. Many of these tracks are longside the ancient arabian water system “acequia” and were frequently used during the Spanish Civil War and after to smuggle goods into Spain from Portugal.

Herds of the black Iberian pig grazing among the groves of cork and holm (Quercus Suber and Ilex) oak are a common sight, where in autumn they feast on the falling acorns. The area is rich in visible bird life with an important population of black vultures. Other birds of prey are common and include the Golden, Short-toed and Bonelli’s eagles. You can see stork’s nests on almost every village church as well as the endangered black stork, and as you wander along the streams, sightings of heron and egrets are common.

Tailor-made for you

We are aware that many people would like to travel in a small family group or group of friends. Why not combine a few days of walking with some historical interest or gatronomical delights? The province of Huelva offers a wide range of historical sites from the Paleolithic period onward, encompassing Roman, Arabian and Medieval periods, not to mention the Christopher Colombus trail. Boasting the atlantic coastline and the western – most tip of the Sierra Morena, the mountainous belt which forms a natural divide between Spain’s central Meseta and the Guadalquivir valley to the South, Huelva‘s gastronomy is deliciously varied. Atlantic fish and shell fish, the black Iberian pig famous for its air-cured hams and also providing some of the tastiest pork you’ll ever try and a white wine producing area. You could say Huelva has it all!
