Why Meraki?

The word ‘Meraki’ sums up how we feel about life and work. Meraki is a greek word which means – to do something with soul, creativity, or love. To leave a little bit of yourself in your work.

Who are we?

Ruth is originally from Dublin but has lived in Andalucia for the past number of years. She set up Meraki as she realised that she lives in an amazing part of the world and wants to share this experience with you. All in the Meraki team are inspired and in love with the outdoors and nature. We run a variety of trips in various locations around Andalucia, mainly in El Chorro, a small remote village. Meraki activity trips include climbing, hiking, trail running, biking. All these trips can include optional integrated spanish learning. Individuals are welcome – check out our dates on our website www.merakispain.eu . Groups of 4 or more can book a specific multi activity package. Ask us about our bespoke packages (mountain bike, SUP, kayak, climbing, hiking, Via Ferrata ) if you want to organise a trip with friends, families or business colleagues.

Can I book as a solo traveller?
