What you'll do

-THIS IS THE ORIGINAL GRANADA HOT SPRINGS TOUR-
Too cold to join in wintertime? Wrong: the water has a constant 38°C temperature!

I will take you on a road trip leaving from Granada to a very magical place in the middle of the olive tree plantations that surround Granada; there we will find natural hot springs next to a protected natural area called Dehesas de Santa Fe. The roads are unpaved and very labyrinthic, so it is very important to go with a guide if you don't want to get lost in these vast plantations. Once arrived, we will take our time to really relax in the baths. The temperature of the water is a constant 38 degrees, which makes this a perfect activity for any time of the year. Those who want to can do breathing exercises in the water as it is said to have healing assets. Whilst taking a bath, I will provide you with some hot coffee, a cold beer or even a glass of cava according to your preference. Depending on the weather conditions and the energy we have, we can go for a shorter or longer refreshing walk in the surrounding protected area after having taken a bath. There we will have marvellous views over the Sierra Nevada's snowed peaks. Afterwards, I take you back by car to our meeting point in Granada city.
IS THERE NO AVAILABILITY ON THE DAY YOU'D LIKE TO JOIN OR WOULD YOU WANT TO PARTAKE AT A DIFFERENT TIME OF THE DAY? CONTACT ME AND WE WILL SORT SOMETHING
Other things to note
When weather conditions are bad the activity can still take place, but the car will be parked further because of the mud. In this case bring a warm raincoat as it can be cold outside the springs.

Where you'll be

We visit the thermal baths of Santa Fe, which is a series of natural hot springs (temperature 38 degrees) in the middle of vast olive plantations surrounding the city of Granada. The hot springs were discovered whilst looking for oil which luckily was never found, but they have so far been very little commercialized. This makes the place on the one hand very unique but on the other hand very hard to find without a guide as there are no road sign

Thomas is super friendly, knowledgeable, and fun! My husband and I had a great time enjoying the thermal waters and exploring a hidden “jacuzzi” after a short hike. The scenery was lovely and it was so nice to explore another part of Granada.

Fue una experiencia única, no esperabamos encontrar un sitio así de bonito en Granada. Primero fuimos a una zona de baños termales más comunes y finalmente el amfitrión nos llevó por un camino que llegaba hasta un jacuzzi natural con vistas inigualables. Trato genial. Nos encantó.

Wonderful relaxed evening with a beautiful sunset. The landscape was stunning and Thomas was delightful. We had a group of six in all which was just the right size. The springs were lovely, a treasure surrounded by craggy cliffs and boulders. Super fun excursion and very peaceful. Also, I enjoyed the drive.

It was a really nice adventure and I had a great day. As other reviewers said, the tour took a little longer due to corona, so you will not be back on 1:30 p.m. But apart from that, the location was magnificent and Thomas was really kind and showed as great things!
