Great Adventures

There are loads of different activities close to hand in The Alpujarra, which we will be happy to help organise for you. Here are just a few…

The ski resort of “Solynieve” (sun and snow) in The Sierra Nevada is just over an hour from Canar, or 2 hours from The Mill. The season usually runs from late November to May.
You really can ski in the morning and sunbathe in the afternoon!
Horse riding is popular with many of our guests, and you don’t need to be an experienced rider to spend a couple of hours off the beaten track and experience The Alpujarra from a different perspective.
If the views from altitudes of over 1200m aren’t quite enough for you, paragliding is available both from The Alpujarra and The Costa Tropical.
No visit to the region would be complete without a visit to the historic Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens in Granada.
Further afield, but still manageable for a day trip from The Alpujarra, you can visit Cordoba and its magnificent Mezquita…
…or Seville, with it’s glorious gothic cathedral, Royal Palace Gardens and the famous Plaza Espana.
Seasonal flowers provide amazing colour along the famous GR-7 walking route, or the newly designated route around the Sierra Nevada, known as “Sulayr”.
And finally…
There are several golf courses within an hour of The Alpujarra. No need to bring equipment – most venues will supply clubs and caddies.
