All the photos on this page were taken by Geopark Granada during the proposed itineraries


For trekking excursions we decided to reduce the offer to the Guadix Basin only, the area inside which you will find the Gorafe Desert and Los Colorados....
The chosen area, of about 160 km2, is full of spectacular landscapes, geology and routes feasible by people who are in good physical shape.
They are not suitable for those who are not used to walking on unprepared terrain (they mainly take place in areas not served by paths).
We prepared, carefully checking them and often drawing them from scratch, various itineraries of different difficulty, length and duration.

We can offer various ways, and all of them can be with or without logistics.
By logistics we intend to accompany you to the starting point and then collect you on arrival to avoid the large circular tour.
The modalities are:

Guided, that is, a guide accompanies you and will help you choose the right path for the most difficult excursions. It can be with or without logistics.
€30* per person (minimun 3 people), plus € 1 * per km with logistics
(Land Rover, 8 people max.
including the guide

GPS: we will provide you with GPS with the pre-loaded track. In this case it will be necessary to leave a document in our workshop, the cost of the GPS rental is € 30 per day, regardless of the duration of the excursion and the number of participants. Again we offer the possibility of logistics with the cost per km of € 1 * (Land Rover, 8 people max.).

To orient you, if you have a map, we will teach you the route to follow and we will give you, in addition to our telephone number in case of an emergency, useful tips so that you have a pleasant and free of bad surprises experience.
Costs: FREE

If you don't have a map, we've ordered maps of the area from the National Topographical Center.
The price is € 5 per map.

The excursions do not use, as our custom, marked paths, but wind along ridges and sometimes pronounced slopes, and almost all of them are potentially dangerous if approached lightly. But they are superb landscaping, and can be overcome with common sense and with a minimum of attention.
Only one can be suitable for children aged 14 old and over, obviously accompanied by their parents. But we are able to adapt the tracks to your needs.
Due to the lockdown, we are late in the annual inspection of our excursions (after the winter rains, it is necessary to check all the excursions to guarantee the safety of the participants and of our vehicles).
As we check the excursions, we publish them below. The color visually indicates the difficulty:
Green = easy
Blue = medium difficulty
Red = difficult
