Our women only tour is one of our most popular tours at Andalucian Routes. Due to our first-hand experience of working with Muslim travellers for over 17 years we have understood that over the years the way that Muslims travel has changed dramatically. We have seen a huge increase in Muslim women who want to travel around the world but don’t necessarily have travel partners or who want to travel by themselves as part of a journey of self-discovery. We therefore designed this tour for those solo female travellers who want to see the world and explore and also meet new people and make friends along the way. We find that when women travel on our women only tours they meet people who become their travel partners for many other destinations.
During the Women’s only tour of Spain you will stay in our private and secluded villa Casa de Rihlaa. The villa boasts a large secluded swimming pool which is far from prying eyes. In addition to this it sleeps 16 and has an on site BBQ for those warm summer nights, a Tennis Court, a basketball net, amazing views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains as well as beautiful gardens and a courtyard if you just want to just relax and read a book.

Due to the new policy implemented by the Board of The Alhambra, which restricts the number of entrances, it is not possible to guarantee the visit inside the monument
Upon your arrival at Malaga airport we will transfer you straight to the Villa (approximately 1.5 hours’ drive), which is located in Granada, home to the illustrious monument known as The Alhambra, located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and in the autonomous community of Andalucía. Granada is also the last Muslim Kingdom which held out for 250 years before the inevitable fall in 1492. From here you will have time to unpack and relax at the villa.
After breakfast we will have the opportunity to get right in and go trekking in the mountains of Monachil. You will also have the chance to engage in other activities including archery, cycling and more (minimum number required and at a extra charge).
After breakfast we will leave for Cordoba (approximately 2 hours’ drive). Upon arrival of Cordoba, we will first visit the archaeological site of Madinat al Zahra. The city built by the Caliph Abdul Rahman III. Here we see the Palace ruins and take a visit to the new exhibitions and museum (approximately 2 hours). We will take a guided tour of Cordoba Mosque, one of the most important and largest Mosques in its time. After taking lunch we take a walk through the old Jewish quarter and then across the old Roman Bridge to the Callahora tower, a fantastic interactive Museum on Islamic Spain (approximately 4-5 hours, including your own free time to explore the city). We will then return to the Villa.
After breakfast we will make our way to the Alhambra, usually the highlight of the tour for many. Nominated a wonder of the world the visit to the Palaces, gardens and fort will leave you breathless (approximately 3-4 hours). You will then have free time to explore the Albaycin and shopping. We will then return to the Villa
After breakfast you will have the opportunity to enjoy the villa which includes the full size tennis court as well as basketball net, barbecue, swimming pool, lounge area and much more.

On the way we will stop at the old Muslim bridge and the Muslim fort/castle which is the location of one of the last stands made by the Muslims of Alpujjara. We will have a chance to interact with the local Muslim community while having dinner at a Muslim restaurant run by Spanish Muslim revert (approximately 4-5 hours).
