About Us

Spain conjures the image of tourist beaches, high rise apartment blocks and throngs of holiday makers, but if you look in the right places you’ll discover quiet beaches, magnificent natural parks, stunning mountain ranges and a natural landscape that stretches as far as the eye can see. It’s a side of Spain that is often overlooked, but one that we are passionate about.

We started Active Andalus in 2014 to provide all-inclusive diving holidays, and we quickly began to see that for many of our clients it wasn’t just the diving that they loved, but the culture, history and natural beauty of Andalucía. We knew that this region gave them a feeling of freedom, of being alive.

As we are both naturally adventurous spirits, we ourselves sought out less frequented walks and scrambles, and explored remote and isolated tracks by Land Rover, and were overwhelmed by the beauty of this landscape, and the sense of freedom it gave. We wanted to share in these experiences, so we expanded what Active Andalus could offer, to include walking, scrambling/climbing and Land Rover courses and adventures.

We’ve remained a small professional family business, taking pride in the activities we offer and of our small team of guides and instructors that bring their experience and passion to each and every holiday.

Phil & SimoneWe specialise in individual or small groups of independent travellers, giving you a very personal experience, and in what we like to believe is a unique and genuine adventure.

Active Andalus offers the opportunity for you to enjoy a holiday that explores much of the beauty of Andalucía; on foot, by 4x4, at the end of a climbing rope or with the kick of a fin!
