Walking in Almeria

3 Feb

At this time of year, when the days can be beautifully sunny and warm, a great way to spend the day is to join in on one of the organised walks here.  Anyone can join the Mojacar Walk Group on Tuesdays and Thursdays – they can be quite challenging but the walks are graded – Green denotes that it is suitable for everyone and then they are graded upwards to Red very strenuous and only suitable for very experienced walkers.  They range in length from around 3-4 hours and often include a stop for lunch.  Usually they start from 15 minutes away to a maximum of 30 minutes drive from the Cortijo.


It is important that all walkers are honest about their ability as some of them are really quite hairy so our friends Mike and Jill Colyer tell us.  They go regularly, are in their 70’s (well Jill is only JUST 70!) and come back full of where they have been – from Cortijo Grande up in the mountains, to the beautiful Serena Valley.  It really is the best way to take in the stunning scenery around here and is perfect for people who don’t want to spend ALL their time on the beach.  From now until early summer is the best time to go – the weather is just perfect for it, not being too hot, and as we only have around 30 days of rain per year, you are pretty much guaranteed to be able to go for at least one momentous walk!
