Sierra Nevada and Granada

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

For me there were many moments! The wall to wall sunshine and temperatures already in the mid-20s in April certainly helped! The variety of stunning scenery and walking terrain throughout the trip was excellent and each day's walking seemed to get better and better. Visiting Granada was a great conclusion to the trip and La Alhambra in particular is not to be missed!

What did you think of your group leader?

George was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the local area. It was a real pleasure finding out more from him about the way of life in Las Alpujarras, its nature and regional/national history.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you are planning to visit La Alhambra in Granada, make sure you book tickets as soon as you book the holiday as they go quickly. Try to get an early morning or evening slot to avoid the tourist hordes in the middle of the day. Although the days were very warm-hot in mid-April, you will need some warmish layers to wear in the hotel on a night as it can get chilly.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This holiday was perfect for a week at Easter - I would highly recommend it. The temperature was just right (20 - 25 degrees in the mountains), making it ideal walking conditions. Remember to bring lots of sun cream! Other reviewers have mentioned that it is not walking in the Sierra Nevada itself but in the foothills. In actual fact, it is a great mixture of the two and there is certainly more than enough dramatic mountain scenery to wonder at.
