    Granada’s Soul Of Andalucía

    Granada (Malaga), Spain

    Duration 9 hours

    Discover the charms of Granada, the architecturally stunning capital of the Andalusia region, by exploring a magnificent palace, the Royal Chapel and the city’s oldest quarter.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for scenic drive inland to Granada, a city likely named for the Spanish word for pomegranate, a fruit so abundant it is depicted on Granada’s coat of arms. Or Granada may have derived from its Moorish name, as the city was the Moors’ last stronghold before falling to Spain’s Catholic monarchs in 1492.


    Granada features a wealth of extraordinary architecture such as your first stop, the Carlos V Palace within the Alhambra complex. Construction on the palace began in the early 16th century, following a Renaissance ground plan with a circular courtyard within a square building—the only one of its kind in Spain. Amazingly, a monarch has never lived in the palace, nor did it even have a roof until 1957.


    Walking a bit farther, you will soon arrive in the labyrinthine streets of the Albayzin quarter (down part of the quarter), the city’s oldest section. UNESCO has deemed it a World Heritage site for its harmonious blend of Moorish and Andalusian architecture.


    Nearby, you will find the glorious Royal Chapel, the final resting place of Spanish monarchs such as Queen Isabella and Kind Ferdinand. Be sure to see the chapel’s mausoleum, spectacular altarpieces and ornate grilles before enjoying free time and perhaps lunch on your own in the surrounding historical area.


    Afterwards, you will drive back to Malaga.

    King's Gaze Hike & Tapas

    Granada (Malaga), Spain

    Duration 7 hrs

    Hike along an exhilarating narrow pathway that clings to the face of a precipitous rock gorge, following bridges and boardwalks hundreds of feet above the river below.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely picturesque drive inland to Caminito del Rey in the El Chorro Gorge. Built in the early 1900s to connect two power stations, the narrow trail high above the Guadalhorce River was once considered the world’s most dangerous pathway. After walking the entire length in the 1920s, King Alfonso XIII named it Caminito del Rey, “The King’s Little Road.”

    Today, the trail has been widened and extensively improved to make the trek much safer, as the original pathway had deteriorated. During your nearly five-mile hike, a guide will lead the way and provide commentary regarding the history of the pathway.

    You will climb a series of stone steps and walk along wooden bridges and boardwalks that hang on the gorge’s vertical walls, an average of 325 feet above the swirling river. You can expect it to be the most exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping hike that you have ever taken.

    Fortunately, the scenery hasn’t changed one iota. The gorge is as steep as ever, the river below still makes its way between the lakes and the views are beyond stunning. There are also benches where you might rest for a moment and admire the natural beauty.

    After the adventure, you can discuss the experience with the other hikers over tapas.

    Need to Know:

    Note: Participants must be at least 8 years of age. This tour includes approximately 3 hours of hiking over uneven grounds, steps and bridges.

    Eira Do Serrado & Monte

    Funchal, Madeira

    Duration 4 hrs

    Your coach will take you inland, passing through Sao Martinho to the Socorridos ravine. Eira do Serrado is reached after a short drive along a winding road, offering spectacular views of the interior of the island. Here, it's a short and easy walk up to the viewpoint on Pico de Serrado at an altitude of approximately 3,592 feet (1,094 meters), for an amazing view down onto the village of Curral das Freiras. Curral das Freiras (Nuns Valley) is a small village nestling between almost perpendicular mountains in the heart of the island. In 1566, the nuns from the Santa Clara convent fled from pirates attacking Funchal and found seclusion here where they also brought the convent’s treasure. Your next stop will be at Monte.


    This small village, perched up in the hills overlooking Funchal, was formerly a health resort for Europe's high society, including Austrian Emperor Charles I. One of its long-lost features was a rack railway, which connected Monte with Funchal. From here you will board the cable car and see Madeira from the air, experiencing the wonderful views all the way down to Funchal. The cable car is made up of 40 small cabins with a capacity of up to eight people per cabin and it has an approximate duration of 15 minutes. Your last stop will be at an important wine lodge, where a sample of the famous Madeira wine will be offered.


    Need to Know:

    Note: A jacket is recommended as Madeira has a microclimate. This tour involves approximately 3/4-mile of walking (5 to 10 minutes) on cobblestones and uneven surfaces with approximately five steps to get to the viewpoint at Eira Do Serrado; approximately 10 steps at Monte and five to eight steps at the Madeira Wine Company. Cable car is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties as access is similar to a ski lift; i.e. cable car does not stop for boarding, rather it moves slowly. An approximately five-minute walk is required from the bus stop to the wine lodge.
