'La Alpujarra' boasts over 320 days of sunshine each year and the warm climate early on in the year makes it ideal for riding. The daily maximum temperatures average ~20°C in February and March making for a very welcome change from the Northern European winter.

While the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada are always around the corner, the camp is based on the Southern side of the mountain range, where the snow rarely settles below 2000m. On our camps you are likely to want to wear shorts and short sleeves for most of your rides (arm warmers and a gilets are recommended for long descents!).

Orgiva, where we are based is only 30km from 'La Costa Tropical' and as the name suggests you will find palm trees lined beaches and exotic fruit farms nestled in the foothills. The coastal cafes make for great pit stops to refuel and work on those tanlines!
