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.

What people are saying about Hiking | Granada





Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.
