More Info

Spain’s Sierra Nevada is an amazing spot for all sorts of mountain climbing adventures. The national park boasts more than 20 peaks that are 3,000 meters in elevation or more.

Among the most popular climbing options in the park are taking two or three days to summit Mulhacén (3,479 meters), Veleta (3,396 meters) and Alcazaba (3,371 meters). These three peaks, known as the Sierra Nevada Trilogy, are the highest in the mountain range and located conveniently nearby one another. While the three days are long, the views are well-worth the effort.

Capileira, Trevélez, Monachil, Güéjar Sierra and Bubión are all popular starting points for mountain climbing adventures in the national park. From any of these villages you can strike out into the wilderness, staying at mountain huts as you head up various peaks in the range. Not a bad way to spend a summer holiday!
