The Green Gorge is a spectacular canyon that has been artfully carved by the streams of Pinar River. It is located within 40 min drive from Suryalila, near the village of Zahara de la Sierra, in the Park of Sierra de Grazalema. Famous for its lush vegetation and wild life, it offers outstanding views with certain spots reaching 400 meters depth. Be prepared for an unforgettable hike, several exciting abseils and refreshing baths.
In Ronda, the most famous white town of Andalusia, you will climb a gorgeous Via Ferrata route. Via Ferrata means ‘Iron Way’ and it is essentially a path on a mountain that consists of iron hooks attached to the stone. You are all equipped with safety gear.
The place overlooks the old bridge transcending over the impressive 98m Tajo gorge. In these beautiful settings, you will be stunned by amazing views, from a perspective that few have the opportunity to experience.
The Green Way is a former railway, now converted into a cycling & walking path. Along the route, old train stations have been turned into restaurants, bars & places to stay. The 36km-long bike route (Puerto Serrano – Olvera) will take you through beautiful scenery and 30 tunnels that were never put into use by a railway company.
Sierra De Grazalema National Park and Unesco Biosphere Reserve is one of Spain’s most ecologically outstanding areas, home to indigenous pine trees, rich flora and fauna. The park is also famous for its impressively rugged limestone landscape of cliffs, gullies, caves and gorges.
Lidiya is one of Suryalila’s onsite Vinyasa flow and Yin yoga teachers. Her classes are vigorous, fluid, and energizing with a strong focus on pranayama and mindfulness. Apart from being a tourism management specialist and marketing and manager assistant at Suryalila’s office, she leads and organizes various retreats including wellness retreats, most famously the adventure and yoga retreat and dubbed the retreat of a lifetime by previous participants.
Suryalila is situated on a quiet country lane, between the charming white villages of Villamartin and Prado del Rey. It is nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema. This majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista extending in all directions with rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.
