Description of Tour

From the south - Culture and Relax

Winter temperatures between 15 -20Cº and the sun of the only European semi-desert invite you to take a break from the dark Central European winter.

The Natural Park Cabo de Gata- Nijar in the east of Andalusia extends over an area of 45,000ha of an African-like coastal mountain landscape of volcanic origin with peaks up to 500m high. Bizarre cliffs and hidden small bays that can only be reached on foot or by boat are waiting to be discovered.

Protected as a biosphere reserve, coastal nature park and geopark, Cabo de Gata-Nijar has remained largely untouched by the development of the last 30 years, which has destroyed many a coastal strip on the Mediterranean. Due to the warm semi-desert climate, the vegetation phases shift to autumn to spring. You walk in fresh, tender green, which emerges "shyly" in the protection of rocks and wadi basins. In the middle of the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, you will stay in the quiet beach village of San José on the Costa de Almería and explore the cliffs, cliffs and hidden coves with inviting beaches that you will reach on paths through wadis with interesting ecosystems and over the coastal mountains. As you stroll through the old towns of Granada, Almeria and Malaga, you'll discover Andalusian cities and their cultural highlights, such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Alhambra of Granada.
