Description

Climb the main peaks of the Sierra Nevada National Park  -all mountains of above 3000 meters high- with this great 3-day “Integral de Sierra Nevada” trek, starting from Jérez del Marquesado, in the Granada province.

The program has a duration of three days and two nights, in a self-supply mode, sleeping in open-air mountain bivouacs and shelters. This means each participant must carry what is necessary to spend these days in the mountain.

Our route begins at the ​​Jérez del Marquesado municipality area, specifically at the Postero Alto refuge, at 1880m high, and ends at the viewpoint of La Rinconada de Nigüelas.

Along the route, we will climb more than 15 emblematic summits of more than 3000 meters of altitude. We will ascend amazing peaks such as El Picón de Jerez (3090m), Alcazaba (3366m), Mulhacén (3482m), Cerro de los Machos (3327m), Veleta (3396m), Elorrieta (3183m), Tozal del Cartujo (3152m), Caballo (3013m), and many others.

Bear in mind this is a highly demanding trek, requiring an excellent fitness level, as well as previous experience in mountain routes.

So if you want to experience this unique trek in the Sierra Nevada mountains, just check the dates below and join us on a group departure, or you could also join us on a private tour. Book your trip and get ready for an unforgettable trek!

My partner and I had an amazing day! It was our first Via Ferrata and Antonio told us everything we should know to climb this track, and even more. He was very friendly and funny, we would definitely recommend to join Antonio on a guided Ferrata! The track itself was moderately demanding for us, we are both fit and did not experience any strength difficulties during the track. We felt safe all the time. The views were stunning!

Enjoyed it. It was fun. Climbed in lovely area, and it El Chorro was just sunny and not too hot in November. Antonio was very nice indeed. The one complaint I have is that the day was too short - I was picked up at El Chorro just after 9.30am and then we finished for the day just after 2pm. You should probably specify how many hours a full day is to make it fairer for customers booking. I’m not sure if I’d have paid so much in hindsight. Otherwise it was a lovely day.

Excellent guide service. David was really good with the kids (6 and 9 years old) and new how and how much to challenge them. We had a wonderful day.

The experience was great. We had Antonio as our guide and he was the best! He was very professional and fun at the same time. He was so chilled yet you know you’re safe all throughout. He was even helping the others that were in a different group without neglecting us at all. As long as you don’t have a fear of heights or if you can overcome it somehow then you’d enjoy the via ferrata experience as much as we did.

We had asked for many changes to make my trip work, but Antionio had been excellent in accommodating us. He is very kind. The trip is very demanding to me as a first-timer, but it is the best breakthrough I like. We did it non-stop within 3 hours. I recommend taking the pace and allow for break time, say 4 hours. I recommend it to all if you like a challenge.

After the pandemic delayed our planned trip to Spain, along with our climbing day at El Chorro, we lost our money on a few pre-paid tourist activities. Unlike other businesses, Explore Share and our tremendous guide honoured our reservation and the magical day of climbing at El Chorro went off without a hitch! Our guide, Antonio, was communicative, and when we arrived ready to climb, he had everything we needed to ensure we would have a fun and safe outing. There is truly nothing quite like clipping into an anchor and looking out over the sun-seared valley from the cliffs of El Chorro. Antonio was patient with us as we re-found our climbing technique, and instructed us on rope protocol and beta when necessary. I recommend anyone who wants a climbing guide to do it with Explore Share. -Nick

It was a very easy climb for me although I had an injury on my toes so that was acceptable. It was cold in town so we went to the sunny side of the wall. he taught me a lot about how to tie ropes and using equipments etc. was good.
