Alcornocales Natural Park

The longest, but most beautiful walk of the week ; we start with a walk through a cork tree forest (Alcornocales) continuing through a canyon (canuto) where the humidity and the microclimate allow for a spectacular array of tropical vegetation. As we continue, on clear days, we can see the rock of Gibraltar, coast of Africa, the cliffs of Barbate and the bay of Bolonia.

Barbate Cliffs

A beautiful walk along the highest cliffs of the Andalusian coast! Starting from Barbate, we climb gently from the beach through inland pine woodland and mediterranean shrubland. The views are amazing and we might even see the coast of Africa in the distance. We continue to the village of Caños de Meca perfect for a pitstop on its lovely beach and maybe dip your toes in the sea.

The walk continues along the beach as far as the headland at Cape Trafalgar and its iconic ligh

Bolonia Coastline

We start from Valdevaqueiros and its huge dune and walk through the countryside climbing towards San Bartolome mountains. On the way, we walked passed one of the major Necropolis known in the South west of the Iberic Peninsula used by prehistoric humans and later on by Romans for their funerals. We get to the tiny village of Betijuelo hiking amongst cattles and start going down back to the beach across the pine forest. The beach we get to is lined with stunning rocky cliffs and we walk along this cliffs as far as Bolonia. On our way, we can enjoy stunning mountain and coastal views, as well as many migratory birds, especially eagles and vultures, which glide effortlessly on the thermals overhead. Bolonia is an idyllic place to relax at the end of our hike, and if you wish, you can take the time to visit the best conserved Iberian Roman Ruins, a roman village where you can still observe all the social organisation of Romans life.

Coastal Trail to Tarifa

A pleasant walk along the coast to Tarifa ; we hike along pebbled beaches, passing the imposing watch tower of Guadalmesi, with the 2 pillars of Hercules, the official waterline between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean clearly visible. The walk ends in the charming resort of Tarifa with its beautiful old town and fortress.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive.

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
There will be several optional activities available to you during the course of your holiday, full details of which will be given out at your Information Meeting by your Tour Leader. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.

Currency

Euro

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
