Walking Holidays Costa Calida
Walk days or walking holidays for groups
If you enjoy walking and would like to practice your hobby as part of your holiday, in new surroundings, then look no further than our walking holidays in Costa Calida. We offer an interesting and varied range of routes in the area. Each walk lasts approx 3 hours and we cover approx 10km. All of these walks are easy medium graded and are obviously on the Sierra espuña terrain.
We meet at La Mariposa at 9.45am on the day of the walk.
Sometimes we walk from La Mariposa and sometimes we have a short drive from La Mariposa to the walk starting point.
Please do not ask us where we are walking prior to the day as sometimes we do not make up our minds on the route until the day of the walk, this is because we have to take in to consideration the abilities of the walkers in general, the weather and the size of the group. We have to take safety into account at all times.
The walk includes an after walk 4 course meal at around 1.30pm (including wine and beer) at ´La Mariposa´ The walk is free (if you book the meal) and the meal is 12 euros….including wine and beer …how do we do it?? (please tip the guide generously!!!)

Gran Recorridos (GR) WALKS
Recently the marking of footpaths and walking trails has improved immensely on the Sierra espuña. These range from local paths to Gran Recorridos (GR), a Europe-wide network of long-distance walking trails. Some of the local routes have been classified officially as Pequeños Recorridos (PR) or “short routes”. Three GRs pass through the Sierra Espuña, many of our hikes and walks use sections of the trails. All of these marked routes tend to be easyish walking however we also have our own routes which are not marked routes (PR OR GR)
