What we will do

The province of Almería offers a huge scenic and ecologic variety due to its geological past and its geographic and strategic location. The dryness that Almería holds in the public imagination is not entirely true. Almería has everything: snow, desert and sea, where it highlights its prominent 217 km of coast.

Within a radius of 60 km the natural landscapes suffer incredible changes. Snow in medium and high mountain ranges such as Filabres, Gádor or Sierra Nevada. Arid zones like Tabernas Desert or Karst in Yesos of Sorbas. The crystal clear water of the Alborán Sea that baths the coasts of its beautiful bay. The  underwater magma that mould 63 kilometers of cliffs and beaches with a volcanic origin in Cabo de Gata. An extreme nature that makes Almería a unique province in biodiversity and full of endemisms. These landscapes are an infinite range of possibilities for the practice of hiking and ecotourism.

Its variety is also reflected in a large road network and paths. There are different kinds of paths: coastals, interiors, high mountain trails, even urban or semiurban. Places surrounded by unspoilt nature where you can enjoy with your group, doing ecotourism and hiking activities outdoors with your family. We can advise and recommend to you the one that best suits your needs and your fitness and health. In short, we are a personal hiking service à la carte in Almería.

Beautiful tour

Everything was perfect . The tour was so informative. I have learned many historical things about Almería. Our tour guide Emilio made sure that we see all the historical places and point out the smallest details that makes every site a unique experience. Very friendly atmosphere.

We did a tour of the refugios with Emilio and his team and it was amazing! They are knowledgeable, friendly, adaptable, and fully bilingual. In addition to giving insights and historical context, he connected it with the city’s present architecture and imbued a difficult topic of war with uplifting themes. Definitely a one of a kind experience and the best way to discover Almería’s landmarks. Don’t miss out on this amazing tour company!

Excellent tour of the Refugios below the streets of Almeria

This was a fascinating tour of the underground ‘refugios’ that were built and used during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. Emilio gave us fascinating background information as we walked along under the streets of Almeria. He then gave us an additional tour above-ground, showing us yet more historical locations that were connected to that struggle. His commentary (in excellent English) brought to life the pain and fortitude of Almeria’s people during that time.
This was a great tour and we highly recommend Emilio for anyone visiting Almeria!
