About this holiday

It’s hard to think of a region that provides a greater variety of landscapes than Almeria. Spain’s sunniest region, Almeria’s proximity to North Africa means that the area is technically a semi-desert, lying dormant during the heat of the Andalucian summer, but bursting into life and colour in winter. This is particularly true along the coast where the dramatic shades of sea and sierra are so powerful they are said to “dazzle the eye and lift the spirits”.

Our walks take place in one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful natural parks, the Cabo de Gata – Nijar Natural Park, one of the last relatively unspoiled stretches of coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. It’s an amazing landscape of perfect half-moon bays, hidden coves, bizarre volcanic rock formations, and spectacular flora and fauna - a wonderful wild coastline, which you will have seen more times than you think as it has been used as the backdrop in many films - think Indiana Jones or Lawrence of Arabia!

Moving inland, we will walk through some of the region’s beautiful and unique landscapes, a bizarre mixture of low, mostly barren mountains and dried-up river beds, like a scene from the Wild West. No surprise then that this is where many of yesteryear’s spaghetti westerns were shot - think ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ or, ‘The Good The Bad & The Ugly’!

Our programme of 5 walks include:

Los Escullos y Loma Pelada

This beautiful walk takes place in the Cerro de los Frailes Natural Reserve. We’ll walk along the coastal path to Loma Pelada Point, with wonderful views over the eastern side of the Cabo de Gata.

Rodalquilar Mines

A fascinating walk through the abandoned gold mines of Rodalquilar, scene of the Spanish Gold Rush in the late 19th-century. There are some amazing views to enjoy of the spectacular inland volcanic landscapes of Almeria where many famous spaghetti westerns were filmed.

Sailors & magic coves

The must-do coastal path in the Cabo de Gata. This spectacular walk takes us from Cabo de Gata Point to the magnificent Monsul and Genoveses Coves – the region’s most famous beaches, having appeared in numerous films and commercials.

Through the volcano

This descending walk starts inland and heads to Los Escullos on the coast. On the way, we will walk through the ancient volcano of La Majada Redonda and the beautiful village of Presillas Bajas.
