Andalucia for Holidays



Andalucia for Holidays covers the southern region of Spain, the area from the Mediterranean Sea in Almeria to the Atlantic Ocean and Portuguese coast of Huelva. Andalucia is as diverse as its size and has over 800 kms of coastline, from small rocky coves to long golden sandy beaches.

This is the home of sherry, fiestas, music and flamenco. Vibrant sun-scorched cities offer their fascinating history and an education that spans the centuries of conflict between different races.

Andalucia has a soul and essence of its own that draws people into wanting more. Come, experience it for yourself.

Andalucia holidays offer whatever type of vacation you can imagine - walking, flying lessons, horse riding, climbing, diving, culture, gastronomy and of course those fantastic Moorish monuments, The Alhambra Palace in Granada, The Mezquita in Cordoba and The Alcazar in Sevilla, among countless others.

Why not explore on foot or by bike?

Andalucia has some of Spain's best walking country, and there's plenty on offer from self-guided independent walking tours to guided hikes. There are city trails and ipod guides for every area you wish to explore, isolated mountain trails or city secrets can be found in maps and guidebooks, with a little homework you can enjoy your pre-holiday planning almost as much as the real thing.

Or ride on horse-back?

You can hire a horse to ride through the numerous national parks of Andalucia or meander through the desert at the film studios in Almeria. Or if you have a dream to canter along the beach and through the surf with the sun beating down, it can happen here. Andalucia has a vast array of horse riding holidays on offer.

Or what about by air?

There's hang-gliding or paragliding off the mountain ranges, you can hire a small plane or even take flying lessons. For something a little more sedate what about a hot-air balloon trip over the immense Alhambra Palace and Granada City or the famous Ronda gorge.

Is your ideal holiday a beach and a book or two?

There's plenty of both on offer too! Andalucia for holidays on the Costa de la Luz on the Atlantic Ocean and Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and Costa Almeria on the Mediterranean. Tiny fishing villages, long and sandy beaches, rocky coves or the Atlantic spray abound.
