Almanzora Walking Group

Walking Group Almanzora - 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

We would love to join your walking group when we are eventually allowed to travel .Is there a Tapas bar at the end of the routes? Regards Steve ADMIN RESPONSE. Hello Steve and Sue. We would love to welcome you when you arrive into the area. We are a small local group and try hard to have a bar part way for a refreshing drink. Most routes are circular.

"A really healthy and interesting way to get to know around the area. By walking together and sharing our ideas and thoughts we all benefit from each other. The group which I'm lucky to be part of is informal fun and friendly. Tracey our 'leader ' coordinator and inspiration driver is very good at finding interesting walks. I would fully recommend giving it a go. "
