Visit the Sierra de las Nieves and the Eco Reserva
During spring, the Sierra de las Nieves, the mountain area next to Ojén, is at its best. La Posada has descriptions of the numerous beautiful hiking trails that are available. Since last summer you can also make an excursion by jeep to the Eco Reserva, where Antonio tells you about the flora and fauna of this area. He also knows where the deer and mountain goats (cabra montes) are situated. The two-hour excursion, which starts in the early evening, usually ends a bit later, because Antonio doesn’t stop telling. Sometimes there are also animals that need to be cared for temporarily. This excursion is fun for young and old !!
