Begin your journey at Sacromonte. Meet your local guide for a hike between Pueblo Eden and Viña Eden.
The adventure kicks off with a drive to Pueblo Eden, allowing you to explore the chapel and the town's main square. Start on your hike along a trail frequented by locals on their way to various ranches in the area. You'll encounter countryside gates known as "porteras," native trees, pastures filled with cows and sheep, and a gentle stream. The landscape unfolds with picturesque slopes and rolling hills. After approximately 8 kilometers, the hike concludes, and you'll head to Viña Eden winery for a satisfying lunch with a view of the vineyards (lunch cost not included).
Upon returning to Sacromonte, you can savor a welcome wine tasting atop the hill, overlooking the hills of the "Sierras de Caracoles." This experience includes a tasting of three wines, champagne, and dinner.
