Sunday Arrival from Malaga
Guests are grouped according to flight arrival times. The last group transfer will leave no later than 14:00. If for any reason you arrive on a later flight, please contact Kitty in advance to arrange an individual transfer, or pre-book a Rental Car here.
For group transfers, we recommend a morning flight that lands not later than 13:30 so that you have time to clear customs, pick up luggage and walk to the meeting point. The car journey from Malaga to Kaliyoga is approximately 1hr 40 mins.
We aim to get you on your way with the shortest wait possible.
Transfer : 45€ per person
Saturday Return to Malaga
Group Transfer 45€ per person
Individual Transfer Option
If your flight arrival / departure time does not coincide with the group transfer times, we can arrange an individual transfer just for you. At least 24 hours notice is required.
Malaga Airport : Individual Transfer €130
Granada Airport : Individual Transfer €65
To book an Individual Transfer, please send an email with your flight details and your mobile number to: email@example.com
Let the driver know immediately about your delay. If you booked a car-pool transfer and you are delayed by more than one hour, Kitty will try to re-schedule you in the next group transfer. Alternatively, an individual out-of-hours transfer can be arranged (see cost below). If you have already booked an individual transfer and your arrival is delayed, the driver will either wait one hour for you, or they will discuss other options with you.

Please wait for your driver outside the arrivals hall between the RELAY boutique and the SANTAMARIA 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 our drivers are bi-lingual and 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. 3) 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. 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).
