Spain: Abseiling

Paella, Flamenco and Tapas..

Abseilers may wish to try Alhaurín El Grande in Andalucia, a typically beautiful whitewashed Spanish town which is a mecca for outdoor adventurers. There are several adventure operators that offer excursions for everyone, from beginners to the more experienced adventure seekers. Ardales National Park, with its awe inspiring rock faces, is a dream for any thrill-seeker, and the warm and pleasant temperatures are ideal for outdoor activities.

Also worth visiting are the mountains of Sierra Nevada in Grenada, where you will be breathtaken by the sheer cliffs and mountains plunging into the sea. Not far north of here is Europe's second largest National Park, the Mountains of the Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas. With its peaks rising to above 2000 metres the range itself provides a refreshing change to the typical mediterranean landscape with endless pine forest extending as far as the eye can see, and rivers, waterfalls and dams for all to enjoy.
