- Difficulty Level
Level 1: Occasional
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Level 2: Recreational
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Level 3: Enthusiast
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Level 4: Avid
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Level 5: Expert
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
The showstopper of southern Spain
Andalucia is the spirited soul of Spain. Spot white-washed, hilltop villages shine like beacons in the countryside. Feel the pulse of flamenco music and the swish from the dancers’ colourful dress. Dine on tapas washed down with the local sherry to your heart’s content. Did we mention the over 300 days of sunshine per year? Pack your bags, this seven-day experience is one for the books.

Day by Day
We meet in Malaga and drive to the Genal Valley. Our friend Pepe will show us around, guiding us on a countryside stroll and hosting us to lunch at his family-run winery.
Delve into the Sierras and wander the trails that travel through pine forests and nature reserves. We arrive in Ronda in time for lunch, where we're invited into a local's home.
Embark on a hike through green pastures, with impressive views of the sierras of Málaga and Cádiz. Later, take advantage of one of many activities on offer at Finca La Donaira—maybe a horseback ride on a Lusitano?
We head south to the famous Costa de la Luz for a coastal hike to the Trafalgar lighthouse. This evening, we stop by our friend Annies’ house for an Andalucian cooking class in her kitchen.
From our hotel, we set off on a walk through the La Janda flood plain to a bravo bull farm, where we'll watch amateur bullfighters test their bravery prowess during a capea.
Today we venture to Seville for a guided tour of the city's top sites like its Gothic cathedral and the Alcázar Palace. This evening we meet some of the flamenco world’s rising stars before our final Spanish feast!
After our last breakfast together, we’ll take you to the Seville Airport for your onward travels. ¡Buen Viaje!
Quintessential Spanish scenes.
Hotel V, Vejer de la Frontera
This beautiful 17thC hotel sits at the highest point of the village of Vejer de la Frontera; an enchanting hideaway in southern Spain, where romance embraces you and time stands still. Twelve elegantly appointed guestrooms meticulously blend history with modern amenities, offering a truly intimate atmosphere.
Finca La Donaira, Cadiz
Located on a 1700-acre private equestrian farm, next to the White Village of El Gastor, Finca La Donaira comprises nine rooms furnished with exquisite taste, a swimming pool and a luxurious spa. Enjoy endless hikes in the surrounding grounds or rides on the hotel's Lusitano horses.
Corral del Rey, Seville
Tucked away in the heart of Seville, this 17th-century Palacio has been meticulously resorted and converted into a small private luxury boutique hotel, offering chic, fresh and creative accommodations. Enjoy luxurious marble and limestone bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and luxe linens, as well as a rooftop terrace complete with a plunge pool and spectacular views.
All good, well planned and well executed. Guides were fabulous, local knowledge and friends gave us a real flavour of the area.— Bryon Barkley
Your connection with the local people is most valuable in helping us learn more about the culture. This requires real relationships between the guides and local people. I saw a real mutual respect. Excellent job!— Janis Buchanan
The terrain varies from flat in Seville to gently rolling to very hilly in Andalucía. We’ll keep the walks flat to rolling—unless you request more.
