Taste of Almeria
You’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from the beaches, as you head inland and discover the secrets of Almeria. Drive past rolling hills covered with vineyards to Cortijo del Cura and through the Sierra de Gádor to a typical village for a tapa tasting. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
At Cortijo del Cura – the province’s first organic winery– the owner will proudly tell you about the wines, which are made using completely organic products and processes. Have a wander around the peaceful orchards and take a peek in the museum before tasting some of the wines and other local products.
This scenic tour then continues through the Sierra de Gádor – a stunning backdrop for photos. You’ll also learn all about little Spanish dishes known as tapas and enjoy a taste first-hand when you call in at a local village.
A chance to see the ‘other Andalusia’ in the highlands of the Sierra Nevada. You’ll drive past rocky outcrops, olive groves, almond and cork trees and cultivated farmland with stops in Puerto La Ragua and Guadix. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
At Puerto La Ragua, there’ll be a stop and a short walk through the pine trees, in a peaceful nature reserve. Then in the foothills, head past shark fin-shaped peaks to Guadix – it’s the picture of a fantastical town that’s jumped out of the pages of The Hobbit. You’ll notice chimneys sprouting from the hills and mysterious whitewashed doorways leading into the mountainsides – and get to see inside one of these unusual cave dwellers’ homes.
You’ll also get a feel for the traditional lives of the locals when you stop at an earthenware shop – see hand-painted ceramics and watch a pottery-making demonstration.
Mojacar with boat
This tour combines two of the Almeria’s top attractions – the Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve and the historic hilltop village of Mojacar. You’ll cruise off the coast of the Cabo de Gata and then head by coach to Mojacar, one of the prettiest pueblos in eastern Andalusia.
Sailing from the port of Carboneras, the boat trip offers great views of Cabo de Gata – the largest protected coastal area in Spain. Pass hidden coves, imposing cliffs and pretty beaches while nursing a complimentary drink on board. You’ll also see the enticingly beautiful Playa de los Muertos – though it means ‘Beach of the Dead’, it’s more a case of a beach to die for.
Then it’s time for Mojacar itself. A guided tour will give you the lowdown on its long history – it’s believed to have been settled some 4,000 years ago – as you wander through winding alleys of whitewashed homes. See the Moorish fountain, city gate, St Mary’s church and more during a pleasant stroll through the village. And on the return journey, you’ll pass through the impressive Tabernas desert.
If it’s a typical Spanish ‘pueblo’ that you’re after, then Mojacar’s your town. You’ll cross some pretty Wild West-looking scenery on your way, heading across the Tabernas desert. And you won’t be disappointed when you get there – the town is made of white, sugar-cubed houses that tumble down the rocky hillside. There’s also a visit to a coastal fishing village.
Mojacar’s a tangle of cobbled streets which are lined with quaint shops and cute cafés and there are plenty of Moorish leftovers to admire including a spring water fountain and flower-filled terraces.
Then take a trip to a typical coastal village. Head over to the beach for a dip or you can wander along the beautiful promenade.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly have all blown through with the tumbleweed in Oasys MiniHollywood. Anthony Quinn, Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot all ‘got the T-shirt’. Even Clint Eastwood scuffed the dusty streets in spaghetti western, A Fistful of Dollars.
And now his cigar-chomping hero is replaced by rootin’-tootin’ cowboy stunt shows that’ll have you gunning for more. Once a Hollywood movie paradise and based around an old Wild West town film set, this theme park puts on exciting shoot-outs, can-can shows and stunt riding, recreating legendary scenes in cinema history all with a beautiful desert backdrop.
Once the show’s over, there’s a miniature zoo with more than 800 animals from 200 different species, located in among lush vegetation of over 400 trees. It’s interesting stuff, as the centre supports an educational, research and conservation programme. Plus if you wish, you can take a dip in one of the pools, refuel in the restaurant or poke around one of the souvenir shops.
Nerja and Frigiliana Tour
Considered one of the most picturesque parts of the Costa del Sol, Nerja and nearby Frigiliana evoke the Andalusia of yesteryear. You’ll venture along the rocky coast towards the whitewashed village of Frigiliana before reaching Nerja and its famous Balcony of Europe. Topping off the tour is a visit to a botanical garden.
Frigiliana is a mainstay on lists of Spain’s most beautiful villages, and the drive from Almeria is also a sight to behold. You’ll head inland to the foothills of the Almijara Mountains to explore this typical whitewashed village. Amble along the hilly streets of the old town and browse the handicraft shops.
Then, it’s down to Nerja on the coast. Unusually for a seaside resort, it has retained a typical Andalusian appearance and atmosphere. You’ll have free time to poke around shops and cafés, and stop at Balcony of Europe to view the cove-strewn coastline. Finally, we’ll swing by a beautiful botanical garden before the journey back to your hotel.
Tabernas desert from Leone to Spielberg the route of the stars
The Tabernas desert is considered one of the only true desert in Europe. 12.000 hectares protected enclosing a sedimentary eroded landscape, with average annual sunshine about more than 3,000 hours and below 250 mm rainfall per year. When Mediterranean’s sea covered the area of Tabernas and after millions of years to more than 500 meters depth, in times when the coastline was located at the foot of the Sierra de Los Filabres, several tectonic movements caused the gradual lifting of the sedimentary basin, settling the current landscape by erosion and over time.
During the route, you stop at all the micro landscapes which conform the desert as if it were a movie making reference to its geology, its vital features as well as its importance in the history of cinema past and present. Iconic films have been shot at this area as “Lawrence of Arabia”, “For a few dollars more,” “Indiana Jones”, “Patton” or “Millenium”.
Along the 4×4 route, the guide will stop to explain to you the most relevant geologic’s freaks, the history and the environmental aspects of this unique place.
