Wild Thyme Trail Running

Guided Trail Running in the Sierra Nevada and Granada Province, Andalucía, Spain


For longer trips, accommodation can be arranged at one of two charming guest houses in the Alpujarras


We have a relationship with several accommodation providers in the Alpujarras, offering accommodation in beautiful guest houses. They are the perfect locations to return to after a day running, to take in the landscape and reflect on a day well spent.

Almond Hill House (visit website)

Almond Hill House is a beautifully-renovated farmhouse with original features and all the modern comforts you need. A charming and unique property, its five en-suite bedrooms have air-conditioning (and central heating for the winter) which means you'll stay in comfort, surrounded by mountains and nature. There is a private pool, gardens, and olive, almond and citrus groves.
It's rural yet near town – so an easy walk or drive after a day's running to bars and restaurants including Moroccan, Argentinian, Italian and, of course, Spanish. The property has multiple 5-star reviews.

Escolta Alta Mountain Retreat (visit website)

Located just outside of Lanjarón, Escolta Alta is a beautiful property set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, with views over the surrounding valley and out to the coast. Enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of this beautiful location, cool off in the generous-sized pool filled with pure mountain spring water, and relax in the sunshine, or explore the town of Lanjarón with its artisan shops, local produce, and reverence for its mineral spring water.

Casa Anna (visit website)

Casa Anna is a charming guest house located in the town of Ferreirola, in the heart of the Alpujarras. Featured in the Times Top 50 Holidays in Spain, this 400 year old house is steeped in local style and tradition. It has been lovingly converted from a family home (with a wine press, olive oil store, barns and stables) into a stylish and comfortable guesthouse. It enjoys a beautiful courtyard garden, south-facing terraces, and stunning views into the surrounding gorge.
