Transfers

At just 65 euros per person, our group transfer service is cheaper and friendlier and more efficient than commercial taxis.

By grouping guests with similar flight arrival times in the morning we endeavour to get everyone on the road to Kaliyoga with minimal delay. We recommend that you book a flight with a landing time not later than 13:45 hrs (1.45 pm).

To book your transfers, please click the button below. Confirmation of your transfer and detailed instructions will be sent to you by email 3-4 days before your arrival date.

TIMING YOUR ARRIVAL FLIGHT

To Malaga

We aim to transfer everyone to the retreat as efficiently as possible, so it’s best to book a morning flight if you want to participate in a low cost group transfer = less waiting time, fewer vehicles and the lowest cost per person. In case there’s only one passenger for the transfer, a solo supplement would apply (see above).

We recommend morning flights that land no later than 13:45 hrs (1.45 pm). The journey time from Malaga airport to Kaliyoga is approximately 1 hr and 35 mins.

To Granada


Granada airport is about 30 minutes closer to Kaliyoga than Malaga airport and will receive some international flights. Those are scheduled to begin this summer (2024).
However, we continue to recommend Malaga airport for its cheap and plentiful flights from international airports, to make it more efficient to transfer everyone from the same airport.
If you choose Granada airport as your inbound destination, please bear in mind that Kaliyoga check-in open from 14:00 hrs (2 pm) and the transfer time by car is about one hour.


TIMING YOUR RETURN FLIGHT

From Malaga

Check-out time at Kaliyoga is 11:00 hrs (11 am). Low-cost transfers will leave Kaliyoga at this time to transfer you to Malaga airport.

When planning your homeward flight time, allow 4 hours from the time that you leave Kaliyoga. So, if you were to leave Kaliyoga at 11 am,  look for flights departing after 15.00 hrs (3 pm).

From Granada

Check-out time at Kaliyoga is 11:00 hrs (11 am). When choosing a flight, look for flights departing after 14:00 (2 pm).


Waiting time at Malaga airport?

Instead of spending hours at the airport waiting for a flight, the shuttle train to old Malaga takes just 8 minutes, with easy access to beaches, the Picasso art museum and cafés from which to watch the world go by. The train runs every 20 mins and the return journey brings you back to the departure area inside the airport.

Directions from Malaga airport

On leaving the airport follow signs to MALAGA and then ALMERIA & MOTRIL – AUTOVIA

A7. After about 10kms the motorway divides and it is important that you continue in the left hand lane – follow signs for ALMERIA & MOTRIL (do not filter right to the A-45 for Cordoba Sevilla). You are on the Autovia del Meditaraneo going eastwards along the coast and you will drive through numerous long tunnels for approximately 100kms. Keep to the speed limit, there are hidden speed traps.

At junction KM 328 the motorway divides again – keep in the right hand lane, exit the A-7 and follow the signs for A-44 VELEZ DE BENAUDALLA, GRANADA & JAEN (avoid Motril and Almeria).

Continue another 10kms until you see signs for junction KM 175  ORGIVA and LAS ALPUJARRAS. The slip road brings you down the hill to the large dam and roundabout where you turn right towards ORGIVA.

Keep going for about 20 mins until you go through a tunnel, then turn immediately left to a bridge over the River Guadalfeo towards ORGIVA.

Follow the main road through the town and continue to follow directions for GRANADA.

As you leave ORGIVA you will pass a small BP filling station before a stone bridge, then carry straight on and after 0.5km there is a larger BP filling station on the right.

Landmarks

1) Continue for about 1km and you will see ‘Camping Puerta de la Alpujarra’ campsite on your left. Carry on about 400m – there is a short section of the straight road followed by a sharp right-hand bend (see photo 1 & 2)… Slow down at the Chevron.

2) INDICATE LEFT and TURN LEFT immediately by the long green hedge and go past the recycling & bus shelter – now follow the unmade road that runs parallel to the main road for a few meters, then it heads south towards the mountains.

3) Follow the track slowly as it’s quite bumpy. You will pass a white farm building on the right and then at the bottom of the hill keep LEFT  at the building called “Fabricolat de Queso de las Alpujarras” (see photo) then continue straight past a large circular water container to your right… Continue straight on for about 600 meters. Keep going straight… Don’t follow any turnings to the right… you’re nearly there… the Kaliyoga sign is on the right just after the brow of a short steep hill (see photo).
