Grazalema – Sierra del Endrinal - Grazalema

Our first days walk is a lovely circular walk starting and ending in Grazalema. Our route today takes us along paths populated with the Mediterranean holm oak of which we will see cows and goats roaming free over this impressive limestone rock landscape. We first go upwards to the Sierra Endrinal through pine forests where interestingly we can see a variety of orchids. As we arrive at the summit, we will be able to see remnants of snow holes where ice was taken for the consumption of the “Gentry” living in the Spanish main cities. We then start our return back to Grazalema, taking in the beautiful scenery where we see a mix of Mediterranean and mountainous vegetation. This is where we may come across a Spanish Ibex and perhaps see the odd eagle or two!!.

Montejaque- Puerto de los Alamillos – Grazalema

After breakfast we take our transfer towards the traditional “Pueblo Blanco” village of Montejaque. We begin todays walk from a track on the outskirts of the village. From here we take a number of trails slowly heading back towards Grazalema. Along this route we can see a different aspect to this mountain area where the different soil allows the spectacular cork oak forests to grow. We will see trees where the cork has been stripped and harvested which creates an impressive artistic landscape.  Within the forest we will see an abundance of flora and fauna including the famous black iberian pigs, varieties of mushrooms and many different species of birds. This beautiful route follows along rivers and streams where we can see birds such as the colourful Bee eaters nesting on the banks of the stream. Following the theme of the previous day walks, we will see many Griffon vultures gliding over head as the Sierra Grazalema shelters the biggest colony of Griffon vultures in Europe! With their wingspan reaching almost 3 meters it’s an impressive sight to see.

For our final days walk we transfer to the start of our walk to discover the La Garganta Verde  (“The Green Gorge”). Our route takes us down through the Garganta Verde, gouged out of the limestone by the river running through. The gorge descends to 1,200 feet at its deepest point. This spectacular walk is a short but intense experience with fantastic surroundings, passing close to the home of a colony of the Griffon vultures of which we can see gliding above us. The end of the route finishes at a natural cavity where the rock formations interestingly change colour from pink to green and the acoustics gives us a church like feel.
