Almanzora Walking Group

Grupo Caminando - Almanzora.

The vast open area that surrounds our village can often leave you feeling rather vulnerable when solo walking. I wondered how many others felt the same, and therefore was missing out on the wonderful experience of walking here and the beautiful views. I started the Almanzora Grupo Caminando for my immediate neighbours and it became very popular.

Now I am offering to extend it to other residents of Almanzora. Do you want to improve your health or get to see the local area of Almanzora by foot rather than by car? Maybe we're the walking group for you.

I am an unpaid organiser and do not ask for any joining fee or costs. I enjoy walking and love seeing others enjoy the experience too, so please note this is NOT an offical walking group. You are more than welcome to join us, to make new friends and enjoy the Almanzora Valley.

The boring but very important bit...

I advise the following:

  • walking boots are worn due to the rough terrain that can be experienced
  • come prepared for all weathers when considering clothing (it does rain!)
  • carry adequate water
  • carry a first aid kit
  • carry a charged mobile phone
  • carry information of your emergency contact
  • do not walk if you are unwell
  • well behaved and obedient dogs are welcome (owners are responsible for their behaviour and safety at all times)
If you would like to join the group please email me at with your full name and telephone number so that you can be added to the WhatsApp group where walks are announced. They are not mentioned on social media prior to the organised walks.
