ROUTES IN THE HOYA DE GUADIX

______________________________
All the photos on this page were taken by Geopark Granada during the routes in the Hoya de Guadix
A WHOLE EXCURSION DAY SUITABLER FOR
EVERY AGE
The proposed excursion (PRICES HERE!) lasts approximately 4 or 7 hours, including time for a beer or to eat something.
Although they are suitable for all locations, it is recommended for them to enjoy the resort, a minimum age of 8-10 years.
As a company regularly registered in the Andalusian Tourism Registry, we are pleased to include in the price the insurance that covers, although unlikely, incidents that may occur in any outdoor activity.
We will always make short walks on easy trails, even if they are on unmarked roads.
There will be several stops to take photos, or as an observation point and information of the environment, CONSULT US! in case you have special needs!
The excursions usually start from Connie Turistic Point in Gorafe, where you can find souvenirs, postcards, magnets and crafts.

Departure time is usually set at 9:30 a.m. The excursion mainly runs along dirt tracks and dry boulevards.
Fun and interesting, the routes offer a variety of archaeological and cultural points of interest. The various planned stops will allow us to see and interpret the landscape, observe fossils and minerals.
In all the routes of the sub basin of Guadix the route passes through the Gorafe desert (bad lands) until you reach Los Colorados where you can, if necessary, choose a different route among those we offer.

OTHER EXCURSIONS
THE MOST RECOMMENDED
The excursions differ in duration, length and, obviously, for the individual points of interest chosen.
The duration of the excursions are deducted based on the kilometers traveled and the stops scheduled for each single journey.
Also the prices are therefore determined according to the kilometric course and the duration of the excursion. (PRICES HERE!)
Even in the shorter excursions of the Guadix basin in designing the routes we preferred to prioritize the unmissable landscape interest, without losing sight of the intrinsic mission of dissemination and information.
Therefore in designing reduced itineraries, in addition to favoring the landscape, we have chosen to include geological and archaeological points of interest, compatibly with the duration of the excursion.

We have maintained in all the routes visits to particular points chosen to share with our customers and friends information on the genesis of the basins, one of the slopes with the most striking view of the Gorafe desert and the impressive "chain of Los Colorados"

The shorter excursion (about 4 hours) includes a visit to the points mentioned above and you will return to the starting point using a parallel track, but on another slope.

The average excursion (about 7-8 hours, including the time needed to stop for lunch or a drink) in addition to the route detailed above, will also allow you to visit the area of Alicún with its thermal waters and expect a walk along a prehistoric (dated around 3,600 ac) 'travertine aqueduct (we'll see how it forms) and the related necropolis. For those who want it and don't get scared for another comfortable walk of about an hour and a half (between round trip), we will take you to the petroglyphs of the nearby Cerro de la Mina.
The return by Land Rover will be quick: about 15 minutes for a comfortable paved road.

you can meet us in Gorafe, at Connie Turistic Point

THE MOST COMPLETE

This excursion is not recommended for children or people with back pain or reduced mobility.
This excursion traces the route of the excursion of medium duration described above but adds, in addition to other points of interest that you will discover with us, a visit to the necropolis of Las Majadillas, the least visited necropolis but in my opinion the most interesting.
The return will allow you to visit, to those who are interested, some dolmens not included in the circuits of visits planned by the Deputation of Culture and Tourism..

PUNTAL BLANCO
DESIGNED FOR YOU PHOTOGRAPHERS
AND FOR THOSE WHO LOVE ADVENTURE
Starting from Gorafe, the excursion involves cases all day and allows, in addition to the shared route (visit to the Gorafe desert and Los Colorados) to reach the white and ocher sediment waves of Puntal Blanco, to then move on to the impressive " Mirador del Negratín ".
A necessary stop in a charming bar restaurant on the banks of the Negratín will allow you to relax before an interesting visit to the "diapiro" with folded rocks and marine fossils.
The excursion includes slopes with difficulties greater than the first section which, although not absolutely dangerous for passengers, require the spirit of adventure.
