Why you'll love this trip
  • Explore the 11th-century Alhambra Palace on a guided tour, discovering its fortress towers, palace decor, architectural styles and magnificent gardens.
  • Stay in Andalucia’s most enchanting cities, from Seville's lively streets to Granada's Moorish buildings and jaw-dropping views of Ronda.
  • Sample sherry at a winery near Jerez – the birthplace of this fortified wine – and sample the finest jamon iberico and other delicacies over lunch in Granada.
  • Take a flamenco class at Casa de la Memoria – an establishment in Seville dedicated to preserving the rich cultural heritage and artistic prowess of this iconic dance.
  • Spend two nights in a stunning hotel on a farm in the heart of the Grazalema Natural Park, enjoying dinners made from ingredients grown on-site.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about our Intrepid Foundation partner, Open Arms. Donations help them safeguard the physical integrity and rights of migrant people in imminent danger who have fled their homes across the Mediterranean Sea. Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Is this trip right for you?
  • We recommend packing light and smart for this trip as you'll be required to carry your own luggage between train and bus stations and hotels, which can include going up and down multiple flights of stairs, and across cobblestones.
  • The Andalusian landscape is very hilly and mountainous. This trip is a great opportunity to discover remote villages, but some people may find the area's topography very demanding.
  • Summer temperatures can be extreme in this region (over 40C/104F). It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

We really enjoyed travelling with intrepid. It was an organised tour but freedom to do what you like at certain times would definitely travel with intrepid again.

This was a fantastic tour! I highly recommend booking this tour of highlights of southern Spain. The inclusion of skip the line tickets plus a skilled local guide for the Alhambra was wonderful as this is such a popular and crowded site. The hotels were well chosen as the locations were convenient and the amenities were excellent. Our leader was skilled, patient, and kindly answered innumerable questions and was helpful on many fronts to all members of our group. There were only ten in our group and we felt like that was a perfect size to travel with. Everyone seemed to be like-minded and was fun to be with. We made new friends that we hope to see again. This was our first Intrepid tour but hopefully not our last!

Very relaxing and enjoyable trip overall. Would recommend for those who want some sunshine and a break without a frenetic-paced itinerary.
