Get Tiptoe inspired with our itineraries...
Andalusia is famous for the notion of Duende, a heightened sense of emotion, which has inspired its famous flamenco music for centuries. There’s nowhere quite like Andalusia, a region which has been heavily influenced both by Islam and Christianity; this merging of two religious cultures makes for an eclectic mix of architecture as well as a fascinating history! Join us as we hike through the Sierra Nevada, explore wonderful Granada and learn how the region’s conservation efforts are encouraging wildlife back to the incredible Andalusian wilderness.
