Guided walking adventure in the white-washed villages of Green Spain
Fancy a one-week holiday in the Sierra de Aracena, the greenest part of Andalucia with woods, pastures, rivers and picturesque ‘Pueblos Blancos’?
Adagio, the gentle guided walking arm of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, is offering accommodation at the 4-star Aracena Park Hotel on the outskirts of Aracena, just a 10-minute walk from the town centre and overlooking the Sierra de Aracena National Park. Highlights of the week include a visit to Aracena’s ‘Grutas de las Maravillas’, a stunning natural grotto of subterranean lakes and mineral formations created over the millennia; sightseeing at the Rio Tinto Mines, with a train ride through a fantastic landscape before a guided walk to the original Roman mine; a nature walk from the hill fortress town of Cartegena to the Finca Montefrio, a local eco-farm offering the chance to sample its produce at a special lunch; and a day exploring the ‘route of the castles’, visiting three small towns and their castles, Zufre, Santa Olalla del Cala and Cala. The price is from £1,039pp, which includes return flights, transfers, half-board accommodation (plus two lunches) and the services of a dedicated tour leader.
