Reaching the Heights with Chris Stewart

An incredible opportunity to walk with Chris Stewart, Acompalia’s Vice President and most entertaining mountain guide!

The walk is on Sunday 20th May gathering in Capileira from 9,30 a.m. and will go along the Acequias Baja and Alta up above Capileira, as far as Cortijo las Tomas and thence down the river to Capileira or las Cebadillas for the less fleet of foot. It’s a 7 hours undermanding day’s walk; but the participants would have to be fairly fit and sure footed.

This organized tour in a beautiful part of Las Alpujarras will be led by min. 2 guides or 3 depending on the number of participants. Places on the coaches are limited and need to be booked by May 10th so confirm your places today.

“Why this walk and the date?” we asked Chris. “Because I have done this walk several times about then, and it is the absolute zenith acme and fruition of the flowering of the lower sierra botany; it absolutely takes your breath away”, says Chris.

The price for this charity guided walk, gastro picnic lunch and coach from the coast or Granada to the Alpujarra is 60€ per person.
