POSADA DEL FRESNO

Organisation of Activities

 

        Those activities which are marked * can be undertaken free of charge,  leaving the Posada on foot. Those activities which are not marked * require a car. For caving and rock-climbing you should contact the appropriate organisation in the area. Information, maps, books etc can be obtained from the Park Information Point. On entering the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park you should make every effort to keep to the rules which are designed to protect and conserve the environment. It is important to have suitable equipment including boots, ropes, rucksack, walking poles  etc, and to bear in mind the suitability of that particular activity at the time of year. The recommended seasons are autumn, winter and spring.
