Andalucia - Seville to Granada

Guided - 8 Days / 7 Nights ex Seville

The tour’s theme blends the three pearls of Moorish Andalucia - Seville, Cordoba and Granada - with some of Spain’s finest rural landscapes where little has changed for centuries.

Peaceful rides through quiet plantations of orange, avocado, olive, cotton and sunflowers offer us a glimpse of rural life in Andalucia’s colorful valleys bordering the Guadalquivir River. Evenings are spent exploring the historic and cultural elements of the cities and small villages you stay at.

Culinary delights include local ‘tapas’ dishes, wines, sherries and fresh nuts, berries and fruits that grow wild throughout the region. Your knowledgeable local leader knows this land well and will introduce you to the true ‘Andaluz’ its eccentric people and vibrant customs such as leather crafts, pottery and Flamenco.
