Almost thirty municipalities, form one of the most interesting routes in Andalucia. The “Pueblos Blancos” are situated in the northern part of the province of Cádiz and also extend into the northwestern part of Málaga province to the Serrania de Ronda.

We cross Mediterranean forests, explore prehistoric caves, walk along mountain streams and hike past orchards and olive groves. Untamed and spectacular, our route explores the very best of the sierras and white villages, with easy to moderate walks and stays in three delightful locations along the way. The White Villages are sure to leave you enchanted, so join us on this Spain Adventures hike!!!
