Our hike day trip takes us in a comfortable mini-van directly into the Sierra de Grazalema, in the vicinity of the village Zahara de la Sierra.
Our route starts about 5 km from the village, right in the National Park Sierra de Grazalema. Through lush vegetation our tour leads us to the first viewpoint at the Bocaleones river which offers a unique view over the landscape intersecting gorge.
After about 700m walking we descent to the river bed, in which we need to take care a little , because some paths run relatively steeply. In this section, we can see the breeding grounds of the impressive lion vulture up close.
We continue towards La Garganta Verde (the green gorge) and the Hermitage, the great cave with impressive pink and green colored rock walls and stalactites. Without doubt one of the most magical places in the entire Sierra de Grazalema.
Shortly after that the trail gets narrower, but we continue until we reach the last vantage point of our hike, the up to 400m high water cascade at Cerrada. From here, it goes back to the starting point of the hike.
After this unique natural spectacle, we need to charge our batteries. We will enjoy the culinary merits in a restaurant with typical regional cuisine during our lunch break.
After that we see the typical white village of Zahara de la Sierra with a leisurely guided sightseeing tour to get to know the cultural richness of this unique region in the middle of Andalusia.
In mini-van we return back to your holiday location.
