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!




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the summer, average daily temperatures reach between 25 ºC and 30 ºC in the national park. These decrease a bit ads you gain in altitude. Rain is infrequent in the summer months.

How to get there:

Any trip to Spain’s Sierra Nevada likely begins with a flight into the Federico García Lorca Granada-Jaén Airport (GRX), which can be reached from several major European airports. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive southeast to the national park.

This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in hiking. We went on 9 and 10 of December but we were lucky and the weather conditions was really good. The nature and the view were fascinating. Alejandro was an excellent guide! Very professional and a very nice guy. All these elements combining together made this trip an unforgettable experience!

At our designated departure time it was raining and looking very unlikely that we would even get out of town, let alone get to climb. Jon took us through the weather for the area and said there as a good chance we’d summit the next day if we were willing to take the chance. We did and so got the chance to summit the next day. Jon took me up off the usual routes and showed me some lovely parts of the mountain. As we climbed many others were turning back but Jon found a safe path mostly out of the weather and we managed to summit a few hours later. Jon’s knowledge of the weather, Mt Mulhacen, the surrounding area and Spanish history added another level to the experience. He is a very capable mountaineer and a guide who knows his clients early and knows how to get the best out of them. I highly recommend Jon if you are looking for a guide to help you achieve your goals. Pete

That was a blast, I truly had a wonderful time! Everything went just perfectly, thanks a lot to my guide Alejandro for your professionalism, patience and flexibility. I am looking forward to my next trek in the Sierra Nevada (or elsewhere, who knows?) and will definitely think of Nevalia
