Hiking in Andalusia
Take a break, grab your backpack, shorts, hiking boots and come hiking in Andalusia. Routes through deep gorges, along overgrown streams and lost villages in the Tejeda & Almijara Nature Park (40,660Ha). Hike through a beautiful mountain area with mountains up to 2,063m! The white village of Cómpeta (Andalusia) is located at an altitude of 640 meters. Our accommodation is literally around the corner from the lovely village square with welcoming terraces. You can stay in our authentic Mesón La Hospedería or the luxurious Studio apartments of our Granada Residence. Cómpeta is a village full of memories of a bygone era, but also with small bars and restaurants around the lively village square where great food and drinks are affordable in the sun.
We are a small Dutch organisation and have been hiking in Andalusia since 1994. We have daily contact to provide you with route advice or tourist tips or simply to catch up with a glass of wine on a sunny terrace.
Endless hiking in Andalusia
Beautiful walking routes along vineyards, narrow mountain passes and through deep river valleys. But also stroll along the beaches of the Mediterranean or through the narrow streets of the white villages in the area. You do not need a special mountain walking experience, you walk 1.5 to 8 hours a day, climbing an average of 400 to a maximum of 740 meters at your choice. The beautiful climb to the top of the mountain Lucero (1,779m) is tough, you climb 1,000 meters on narrow mountain paths for an impressive view to the Sierra Nevada and the Riff mountains in North Africa. You do not need a guide and walking routes generally start at the door of your accommodation. To fully enjoy your walking holiday, we offer a package with a detailed walking map and possibility of transfers to starting points of walking routes. Walking excursions with a guide can also be organised.

What do our guests say about hiking in Andalusia?
Casa Granada, what a lovely, spacious house, fully equipped! Albert promised the beds would be good; that was certainly not too much to say, we also needed after the brisk walks in the beautiful Tejeda & Almijara Nature Park! The roof terrace is a wonderful place to have breakfast in the pleasant morning sun and to enjoy a wonderful sundown after walking all day in the evening, overlooking Cómpeta and always the Mediterranean Sea in the distance.
And then the walks in the beautiful, rugged landscape of the Nature Park adjacent to the village with the personal guidance of Albert, his hiking tips, the clear maps, and the transfers by 4x4 vehicles to the most beautiful hiking routes! All this made our two-week stay in Cómpeta a wonderful time. We enjoyed Albert's hospitality and special commitment during our walking holiday. Andalusia Sportief - Hiking - Cómpeta = definitely recommended and worth repeating!
Albert, thank you again for everything!
