Travelling To Kaliyoga
Address: Kaliyoga, Camina Orellana, Las Barreras , (Orgiva), Las Alpujarras , Granada, Spain
Malaga Airport is an international hub with modern facilities. The road to Kaliyoga follows the Mediterranean coast, then climbs through spectacular hilly terrain (90 mins / 127km). Granada Airport is slightly nearer, but the choice of international flights is quite limited, so most guests choose Malaga.
Our Low-Cost Transfer Service is cheaper and friendlier than commercial airport taxis – your exact meeting place and times will be confirmed to you by email on the Thursday before your arrival.
On your arrival day (Sunday), transfer pick-ups are offered between 12:00 – 16:00.
Check-in on arrival day is from 14:00 – 18:00
On departure day (Saturday) your check-out and transfer departure time is 12:00 and we will aim to get you to Malaga Airport by 13:45, allowing plenty of time for flights departing from 16:00 or later.
NOTE: if you have booked an evening flight, you might want to take a shuttle train to Malaga centre (8 mins : 1 stop) from where you can walk to the beach, visit the Picasso museum, eat and relax etc. The shuttle train runs every 20 mins and the return journey will bring you directly to the airport departures area.

As you exit the arrivals hall, turn right and walk towards RELAY kiosk then wait for your driver at the public seating area behind RELAY (not Santa Maria Café).
Transfers are operated by a small team of friendly, self-employed locals who know the area and provide a personal service in English/Spanish. This service is offered because the drivers know exactly where to go, saving you time and money.

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.
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).
