‘Technically amazing, Great camp, please do more’ is summarizing the feedback we received from the few groups who tested our ‘new’ camp in 2018. Granada and Guadix have very interesting terrain, is culturally varied and visited and actually gives you the option to sleep at ‘sea level’ or at ‘altitude’ (Sierra Nevada ski resort).
Terrains are known to be technically and physically challenging, between 500 and 1500ms of altitude, located in the Huetor and Guadix Sierra’s east of Granada. Some of the higher areas can have snow during winter season, so this camp is best from end of February onwards. Guadix terrains are rocky and could actually be used as proxy for sand stone terrains in other countries.

Hospederia Ruta de Lorca is based in little town Alfacar (8km from Granada center) and 3km from the first O-maps. The hotel has 19 classic styled rooms and has a big restaurant with typical Andalusian food. we had a few small groups here in 2018, all happy with the (basic) rooms and nice food. booking.
Apartamentos Aguas de Viznar is another nice alternative for bigger groups as they have multiple apartments of different sizes and qualities. in 2018 we had a big group here and they were satisfied. booking
