You will be travelling to southeastern Spain where the climate is typically Mediterranean with mild winters and hot, dry summers. During the winter nighttime temperatures can drop below zero with daytime temperatures of 8 to 12 ºC. September, October and November are the months when semi-tropical storms, with high winds and up to 500mm rainfall, can occur depending on sea surface temperatures and meteorological conditions. In the event of this we will not be walking and have an alternative itinerary of slide shows and visits to local museums.
Should you wish to buy souvenirs we suggest you buy something from the village such as olive oil, almonds or locally produced spicy sausages. This provides direct benefits to the community and to the environment by supporting those that care for the land.
Water is a scarce resource and so to reduce water consumption we recommend that you shower rather than use the bath and use the short flush on toilet cisterns when available.
During the walks we will be advising you on all aspects of the countryside from local customs to good practise but we would like to point out four cardinal rules before you arrive. 1. Do not light any sort of fire. 2. Do not leave the footpath unless your guide indicates otherwise. 3. Do not pick any flowers or remove fossils you may find unless your guide indicates otherwise. 4. Do not pick any fruit unless your guide indicates otherwise.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
