Gorafe desert The “Coloraos”

Guided route of 25 km in 4×4 and an approximate duration of 4 to 5 hours in the geopark of the quaternary valleys of the north of Granada. This desert is unique for its impressive landscape and geological beauty, full of colors, gullies, fairy chimneys and deep ravines, it is ideal to get the best photos and enjoy the silence. We recommend doing it first thing in the morning.

Quaternary Geopark of the North Valleys of Granada

We could say that the Geopark of the Quaternary is a vast territory. It has more than 1.400 square kilometers of extension, whose geological, topographical, landscape, paleontological, patrimonial and cultural values are common. They are delimited by the rivers Fardes and minor Guadiana. Ancient rivers without exit to the sea formed 5.3 million years ago an extensive lake known as Thetis.

Swamp del Negratín

The most recent rivers, such as the Gor River, where the village of Gorafe is located in the center of the Geopark, have modeled this landscape in a constant way, during the last half million years, forming a singular territory characterized by its aridity, in which impressive gullies are present. The exposed rocks in the fluvial valleys of the Quaternary Geopark tell the story of the geological evolution, of ancient Mesozoic seas and life during the Quaternary.
