Day Trip to Granada’s Hidden Gem
The beauty of the region expands outside of just the city center. We will spend one day driving towards the stunning Sierra Nevada mountains to explore one of the most beautiful and intriguing parts of region.
We’ll learn about the “casa cuevas”, where people have been living in caves for hundreds of years and finding out more about the history behind it.
Wine Tasting, Bodega Tour and Vineyard Lunch
We’ll head to a world renowned vineyard that is at the highest altitude in Europe. This winery not only has some of the best selections in all of the country, it also has a long history and tradition that goes along with it.
Cultivated with pure water from the Sierra Nevada and naturally harvested, you’ll not only learn about and taste these amazing selections but you’ll also learn about the village where it resides.
Tapas Food Tour
Granada and tapa culture go hand in hand. Some would say Granada is the originator of the tapa!
We’ll spend an evening heading to some of the most authentic restaurants in the city with locals to indulge in the best tapas they have to offer.
Not only will the night be filled with an authentic experience but tons of wine and great food as well.

Have an authentic Spanish cultural experience in a private flamenco class.
From rhythm syncopations to bulerias, you’ll learn everything in this dance class which is then followed by an intimate dinner in a cave with a live show.
Workshops with the LMDES Team
It wouldn’t be an LMDES Getaway if there wasn’t intentional learning and connection involved. During our time together, we’ll have various workshops focusing on themes like building a life you love abroad, navigating Blackness in a different country and more. These workshops are a time for you to engage and reflect on where you are now and where you want to be.
Connections With Your New Tribe
