A 1 or 2 weeks Spanish course of 4 lessons of 45 minutes per day from Monday to Friday (09.00 - 12.15 h) allows you to complement language study in the mornings with hiking afternoons for all levels. Group size: from 1 to 2 students.

One of the main attractions of the area around Granada is the wide variety of landscapes that are available within a very short distance. It is an ideal area for combining a Spanish course with walking holidays. Our students can participate in a hiking program. Through this program they are able to experience the impressive natural environment of the Natural Parks of Granada Province.

The mountainous Alpujarras, the Sierra Nevada National Park and a lot of different natural parks offer wonderful views around almost every corner. Here you can select from a wide range of walking challenges from very easy to extremely difficult. The Alpujarras has an interesting history which is today still evident in the Moorish architecture and terraced hillsides that exude a sense of times past. The landscape itself is a series of gorges and surrounding hills with whitewashed villages clinging to the hillside, beneath the imposing Sierra Nevada peaks. The walking routes have been here for centuries. In this area, especially in spring, there is an abundance of flora including vibrant indigenous flowers as well as rare orchids. The groves of olive, almond, orange and lemon trees offer a wide variety of new and ancient trees, some of them hundreds of years old.

Conditions: Spanish classes are held from Monday to Friday, the school being closed on Saturdays and Sundays. The level groups have a maximum of 8 students. The minimum age of students is 14 years; students younger than 18 years need written authorization from their parents.

Starting dates for all levels of Spanish and hiking: every Monday

There are no Spanish classes on national and local holidays. These classes are not recoverable; except in the case of 1 week courses and private courses.
