I regard my trek with my sons (in Nepal) led by Satish as one of the highlights of my life. ...Satish's care was just extraordinary....I could not recommend World Expeditions and Satish too highly.

Genal Valley Walk

Traverse the Genal valley, a region of ancient forest broken by remote white washed villages and mountain springs. This itinerary provides an insight into Andalucian culture as you share mountain trails with the locals and explore the region's villages. One such village is the charming Genalguacil renowned for its sculpture classes, the evidence of which can be seen throughout the narrow streets. With plenty of opportunity for bathing in the rivers along the way and spotting local wildlife, this journey delivers an invigorating experience of the Andalucian outdoors. You'll sample southern Spain's local hospitality in the local hotels and guesthouses we have carefully hand picked.
