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 the lively streets of Seville to the Moorish buildings of Granada 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.
  • Visit the spectacular mountain-top village of Zahara de la Sierra and enjoy an olive oil tasting at a local family-run mill.
  • Spend two nights in a stunning hotel set on a farm in the heart of the Grazalema Natural Park, enjoying dinners made from ingredients grown on site.

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.

I am so happy that I chose the Intrepid “Highlights of Andalucia Tour” to experience the wonders of that region of southern Spain. Thank you to Leader Adrian for going above and beyond to make every day of the tour special. His rapport with our small group was first class and his knowledge of the area ensured many happy memories for me.

Our trip through Andalucia was incredible! The included experiences were fantastic and something I'd never be able to have arranged on my own. The stay in Grazalema Natural Park was better than I could have imagined. If you're lucky enough to get Adrian or Ana as your leader, you'll have a fabulous time! I absolutely loved this tour!!
