If you want to venture out of the city for a few hours this is a Wonderful hike on the outskirts of Granada with varied scenery. Julio the Guide was super attentive and I even had a private tour … some parts are tricky with a bit of crawling so be careful! would do it again and a great start of the morning!

Excellent hike with Julio being a knowledgeable and experienced guide. Julio also takes lovely photos as part of the tour which he shared after. Walking through a canyon and across 4 hanging bridges. Highly recommend.

Nice, interesting, varied tour. Super nice guide. Good shoes are important. You should be a little agile and used to walking narrow paths, or at least not be afraid of it.

Nice experience.. inside the nature hiking for 2-3 hours across a small river ! Nice views :-)

incredible views, a quiet route, but very good to disconnect and get in touch with nature
