Join us this Autumn for our very 1st International Trek to Las Alpujarras in Andalucia, Spain

and help us raise funds for Galway Hospice


Trek Las Alpujarras promises to be full of memories and one you really don’t want to miss! This trek which takes place from Saturday 19th to Saturday 26th October 2019 has been especially designed for the Galway Hospice trek so we can see some of the best bits of Las Alpujarras in a week by foot!

About the Route

The Las Alpujarras is the area between the high Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean Sea and is one of the most diverse regions in Spain. The Sierra Nevada dominates the rich blue skies, whilst the Contraviesa Mountain range to the South separates Las Alpujarras from the sea. The Area is rich in Moorish history and culture and full of wildlife and amazing scenery.

Your Support 
Galway Hospice services are continuing to be in demand, with double digit increase in the number of patients and families being supported by us in 2018. We continue to be heavily dependent on fundraising activities to fund our Community Palliative Care and Daycare services which means that we continue to need to raise €2m annually to fund these essential services. Campaigns such as the Las Alpujarras help us reach our €2 million.

How to get involved?

This promises to be a truly spectacular trip. We need you to raise a minimum of €3,000* for the trip which includes a non-refundable deposit of €300.  Included in this €3,000 is your flights, accommodation, breakfast and dinner each day, guides and vital funds for Galway Hospice (a minimum of €1,500 from each participant will go to Galway Hospice).

To help you along the way, if you decide to encourage a friend to come, we will offer you a €200 discount from your fundraising total.

Don’t worry, the Galway Hospice Fundraising Team are here to help with lots of fundraising resources from posters, fliers, collection buckets, sponsorship cards or even some promotion on our social media channels. We also have loads of ideas to get you started so do get in contact.

We do hope you’ll join us this year for our very first international walk.

If you have any questions about this event please email the team at or phone 091 770868 to talk to the team during office hours 9am - 5pm.

*Single Room Supplement an additional €155.
