Wed 5 Oct - Start of 4 night tour

Today you should arrive in Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP) or Federico Garcia Lorca Granada Airport (GRX). Once you’ve reached the arrivals hall at the airport, look for "The World’s Fastest Marathon" sign and our representatives will show you to the bus. There will be 3 scheduled arrival transfers from the airport in Malaga to Granada: 13:00, 16:30 and 20:00. Early evening join us for a walking tour through Granada’s historic city centre. Your tour guide will lead the tour from your hotel, which will conclude with a taste of Spanish wine and nibble on tapas.

Thu 6 Oct - Guided walk in Granada

This morning is free for you to relax, enjoy, and explore Granada at your own pace. Alternatively, an optional excursion is available which takes you further out to visit two charming Spanish villages: the rural 'White City' of Frigiliana and seaside Nerja on the Costa del Sol, the “Coast of the Sun.” This excursion will last 6-7 hours. In the late afternoon, after the return of the optional excursion, we’ve organized a special treat – a guided walking tour through two of Granada’s most fascinating and special quarters: El Albayzín, a historic neighbourhood deeply rooted in Granada’s medieval Moorish culture, and Sacromonte, famous for its thriving Roma culture, caves, and long flamenco tradition.

Fri 7 Oct - Alhambra and Route Inspection

Arrival day for the 2 night tour. For those on the 4 night tour, today, you can enjoy the day at your leisure.

The second excursion takes you to the UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site Alhambra. A must do when visiting Granada. Please note: It is extremely difficult to get tickets to the popular Alhambra during high-season, which is why we have secured a number of entry tickets for WFM participants.
