Walking in Costa Almeria

  • Discover Cabo de Gata - Europe's only desert
  • Cortijo del Fraile, the setting of several spaghetti westerns
  • Relaxed pace walks in the sunshine with stops at unspoilt beaches
  • White-washed fishing villages of Agua Amarga, Las Negras and San Jose
  • Varied flora and fauna including Bonelli's Eagle and cacti trees
Walk through the rugged volcanic landscapes and deserted beaches of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, to discover one of Spain’s last remaining undeveloped coastal regions and Europe's only true desert. On a week of easy going walking, head along the unspoiled coastline between whitewashed fishing villages, and into the desert-like interior, where you can explore old gold-mining villages and locations for the play Blood Wedding and spaghetti western, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. A diverse range of flora and fauna including wild cacti, pink flamingos, and palm trees, give you the feeling of an altogether more exotic destination outside Europe. With much of the park only accessible on foot, and overnight stays in authentic little villages this tour allows you to truly get away from it all and discover a part of Spain unexplored by many.
