Las Alpujarras Walks

Las Alpujarras is a particularly delightful area to explore on foot and there are many well-signposted walking routes, ranging from a short stroll, to day long hikes into the Sierra Nevada.  For the really serious walker there are two famous long-distance foot paths that cross Las Alpujarras.  One is the GR-7  which begins in Tarifa in Cadiz province and crosses Europe all the way to Greece.  The other is the GR-142 which runs from Lanjaron to Fiñana on the northern side of the Sierra Nevada in Almeria.

WALKING TIPS

  • Take a good quality walking map with you.
  • Take a compass.
  • Wear good quality, sturdy, waterproof walking boots.
  • Let someone know where you are going.
  • Take a mobile phone if possible.
  • Take plenty of water.
  • Protect youself from the sun, it is better to avoid walking in the heat of the afternoon.
  • Wear suitable clothes, layers are good as although it may be hot at lower altitudes, it can be cold higher up.
  • Keep to a clear path and avoid taking shortcuts unless you are absolutely confident of the area.
  • Be aware that the weather can change very quickly and fog, rain, or storms, especially lightning, can occur quickly and without warning.
  • Be aware that dry riverbeds and streams can quickly flood during bad weather.
  • Help to protect and maintain the area you are walking through.

The best months to walk in Las Alpujarras are April to mid-June, and mid-September to mid-November.
