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.

I am Thomas, an experienced guide and foreign-born local in Granada. After a Master's in Hispanic studies and many years of experience as a historical guide I want to take you on a marvellous off-the-beaten tracks tour to Santa Fe's hot springs and its surroundings. I speak fluent English, Spanish, Dutch and French. I also have a good basic knowledge of German and Portuguese. I have 7 years driving experience and used to work as a driver on road trips for a tourist company.

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

Had such a great time exploring Granadas landscapes and hot springs! We took a bit of a detour because of Covid restrictions but it was totally worth it. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore Granadas hidden gems.

We had so much FUN!!! This excursion is a MUST. I know ppl who have actually lived in Granada and had no idea about these hidden gems. We meet at a very central location. We headed over immediately to the hot springs . There was no one there but US! I’m assuming due to the timing we went. The water was warm and refreshing we actually don’t drink Coffee and my friend doesn’t eat meat so we were served warm tea while soaking and vegetarian options for food. We were so thankful . We learned so much on this trip about Granada . Truly enjoyed . This is not a luxurious trip as far as accommodations . You’ll do a short walk down that has sand & rocks . You’ll eat near the water / in the car . But everything about the Hot springs is 10 star. I would def go again . Due to COVID restrictions we had to take a longer commute. That was the only downfall after the hot springs we wanted to be home ASAP 😂 if you want an idea of what the Hot springs looks like / our experience you can check on my Instagram which is thats__Yahya I have photos and videos !

Thomas went above and beyond and has created a really special 'non touristy' tour. His local knowledge, relaxed nature and flexibility are the reason why he has one of the top experiences on AirBnb. This is exactly what people want in experiencing new places.

Thomas is TRULY so wonderful. He was friendly and welcoming. This experience was unlike anything we’ve ever done before. The hot springs were beautiful and very warm. There was a stunning view of the mountains over Grenada and we got to watch the sunset. Thomas also brought us drinks and tapas. He is someone I would want to go on other adventures with, as he was knowledgeable, friendly and very accepting of everyone. Note: there is some nudity among some of the locals so if you are uncomfortable with that, I would not suggest going. However that is commonplace in much of Europe and we felt comfortable in our bathing suits. I would say just change beforehand to avoid discomfort there. There are no public restrooms, since you are in nature!

A very unique experience! Thomas was very nice and welcoming. He provided us with drinks and food included with the price. While there were other people at the springs that made it a little uncomfortable at times, Thomas made us feel more comfortable within that situation. Worth the price and I would recommend!

Hot Springs in the evening was amazing! The sunset was perfect and you can see so many stars when the sun goes down since it’s a bit away from the city lights. Thomas was super friendly and welcoming. He brought drinks and we were the only non-locals there. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
