Our Six Day Walking Holiday is a delightful itinerary that allows you to visit six of the beautiful white villages in the Sierra de Grazalema and overnight in four of them. The walks are suitable for anyone with an average level of fitness and our notes ensure confidence in your navigation. Our holidays are based in the mountains villages of Grazalema, Montejaque, Benojoan and Ronda. Your holiday begins on arrival in Seville or Malaga where we bring you to your first night's guesthouse in Grazalema. Grazalema is the highest village in the Sierra and the main base for hiking in the region. The village is full of character and it has many great tapas bars to relax in after your hike. The final night of your holiday is spent in Ronda, this most famous white village is an historical and visual gem. We can also arrange for time to be spent in Seville or Malaga depending which airport you flew into. Seville is the essence of southern Spain, a magnificent and graceful city that typifies the south. Malaga has experienced a resurgence in the last decade and is has seen its city centre transformed and is a lovely city to spend you final night in Spain. View our location in Google Maps .
