Recommended Hikes

Rio Chillar (Nerja) – easy/moderate

A great family day out for anyone looking to get away from the beach is to walk up the Rio Chillar in Nerja. It is one of the few walks in the area, that is possible during the height of the Andalusian summer.

Cañada Sereno – easy

Great family walks with a lovely meadow where you can stop for a picnic halfway round. Stone benches with fantastic views mean that there are plenty of places where you can stop for a breather. Refill your water bottles at the source of the River Darro, one of the two rivers that run through Granada.

NW Sierra Nevada, Monachil – moderate

The walk skirts the edge of the urban area between Granada and Monachil, and can therefore be accessed at several points: the Los Rebites and Mundo Nuevo areas of Huétor Vega (just outside Granada), and Monachil village. Click here for detailed information

Río Verde – difficult

This walk takes you down into a dramatic gorge where you can take a refreshing dip in the lovely green waters of the Rio Verde. In the gorge, peaceful pools alternate with waterfalls and fast-flowing rapids. Before you reach the gorge, the walk descends through a landscape of pine trees and wild herbs, past a fascinating waterfall with calcified tree trunks.

Melegís – Reservoir – easy

A very pleasant stroll through the orange groves of the Lecrín Valley, this circuit starts in the pretty, white village of Melegís, and also takes in the Béznar reservoir.

Albuñuelas – Río Saleres – easy

A short walk that goes out along the GR-7 long-distance walking trail before returning on the other side of the Saleres river. Lovely views of the villages in the Lecrín valley, as well as to El Caballo in the Sierra Nevada.
