Responsible tourism: Learn Spanish and rock climb in Granada, Spain

Environment

Escuela Montalbán organizes this package in collaboration with
the outdoor company "Granada al Límite". The company is situated in the village of Quentar, Granada Province. "Granada al Limite" consists in a group of young people who started to offer outdoor activities in different villages of Sierra Nevada Natural Park. Sierra Nevada is a magnificent mountain range, which is the 2 nd highest in Europe. The Sierra Nevada is a protected area encompassing torrid rivers, steep-sided gorges, bouldered scree slopes, glacial lakes amidst snowy peaks and, in the foothills of the Alpujarras, cultivated terraces of almond trees and vegetables. The aim of "Granada al limite" is to promote sustainable tourism which allows participants to get to know this unique Natural Park in the South of Spain. Participants will visit different areas of the Park. The National Park area is a location of outstanding importance for their wildlife and geology, with ecosystems that have been little altered by human activity. It has the highest degree of protection, sometimes with restricted access to certain areas within them. Participants will receive extensive information about the protection politic of Sierra Nevada Natural Park and the National Park area. They basically have to know, that
- access to the National Park is only possible by non-motorised transport (horses, bicycles or on foot).
- it is strongly forbidden to take away any plants or stones. Participants will receive a dossier about "endemic flora and fauna".

Community

Granada Province is one of the most important regions for rock climbing in Southern Spain. Here you can find a big number of rock climbing areas. We offer guided rock climbing afternoons all year round. Our guides are from Quentar, a small village situated in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park. They are a group of young people who came from the unemployment and founded the company "Granada al Límite". They will lead our students through the beautiful landscapes of this aera situated in the surrounding of Granada city. Participants will climb in areas near Alfacar village, Monachil village or Diezma village. These rural villages are located outside the main tourist aeras. Inhabitants live basically from incomings proceding from agriculture. Our participants have the possibility to rent rock climbing equipment in the villages, in the case they need to do so. We will finish the climbing afternoons with a small dinner at a local restaurant. Thanks to this type of programmes, we contribute to promote outdoor tourism in these villages. In the future this type of sustainable tourism can become an alternative for the locals to obtain economical incomings.
