About this book

Guidebook to walking the GR7 trek through Spain's Andalucia. With its white sandy beaches, pine forests, snow-capped peaks, traditional villages, lush river valleys and olive groves, the GR7 takes you on a journey through the most geographically diverse region on the Iberian peninsula. This varied route starts at the southernmost tip of Spain at Tarifa, and meanders through the provinces of C´┐¢diz and M´┐¢laga before dividing. The northern route heads through C´┐¢rdoba and Ja´┐¢n provinces (711km in total), while the southern route passes through Almer´┐¢a and Granada (720km). The route crosses seven stunning natural parks and the Sierra Nevada national park. This is the first guide to cover the whole of the GR7 in Andaluc´┐¢a and gives detailed route descriptions for around 60 days of walking, with options for creating shorter sections and days. Information on all the villages en route offering accommodation is also included so that you can plan your own route.
