The Southernmost part of Spain offers stunning landscape from the Sierra Nevada desert to the picturesque Coast and National parks. Rich culture and the beautiful Moorish architecture are linked to the famous cities of Sevilla, Ronda or Granada. Amazing roads and superb accommodation.
Trans-Andalucía is your chance to experience Andalucía off the beaten track, to flavour its amazing gastronomy and to soak in the colourful countryside the southern-most region has to offer.
This is an adventure of contrasts yet, at the same time, a perfect balance between rural villages of the Alpujarra region located South of Sierra Nevada, tropical Mediterranean Coast of the Axarquia, lake districts like El Chorro with the most dangerous hike El Caminito del Rey, green scenery of Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, traditional hillside White Villages (pueblos blancos) of Cádiz with virgin beaches of the Atlantic coast and wildlife in Doñana National Park south of Portugal.
