Our departure point is one of the most popular destinations in Granada: its ski station. In winter its white mountains invite those who are eager to enjoy a day in the snow.

The next stop will be the beautiful Alhama de Granada. This charming location has everything you can think of: fantastic walks, homemade restaurants and a spa resort. We really recommend the spa resort, as it offers you circuits, massages, beauty treatments, hot spring pools and all kind of therapies to make it the perfect moment to only think about your needs and your life.
