Granada is home to the impressive Sierra de Nevada which has hundreds of hiking trails to choose from. There is also an abundance of natural beauty. Some of the tallest mountains in Spain can be found here and there are hikes for beginners right through to the more experienced.
The Vereda de la Estrella trail is a great option if you want to take in the spectacular beauty of the Sierra Nevada and its most imposing peaks. Or, if you’re looking for more of a challenge, you can hike to the summit of some of Spain’s highest mountains like the fourth tallest mountain in Spain Veleta Peak at 3,398 meters. The hike to the Poqueira Refuge, very near Mulhacén, the tallest mountain in the range is a great choice too. Los Cahorros gorge is another awesome place to hike and there you’ll find fun hanging bridges to cross.
