Description

I want to invite you to discover Sierra Nevada walking around the massif from Northeast to Southwest, always above 3000 meters of height.

During this trek, you will also enjoy the views of Granada, the Mediterranean Sea and Africa, if climate helps. We’ll approach to the mythical summits of the Sierra Nevada Range:

  • Picón de Jeres
  • Vacares
  • Alcazaba
  • Mulhacen
  • Veleta
  • Caballo

It is an advanced trek in which we’ll have to spend the nights in non-guarded huts, take our own provisions and find water by ourselves during all the expedition.

Besides, there is a possibility of doing an integral trek completely autonomously, without going through the Poqueira Hut. Please consult me if you’re interested.

I offer you 4 trekking days and 3 nights. The first one in bivouac, only covered by stars. We’ll spend the second night in a guarded hut where you can recover energies and provisions. The last one, will be in a non guarded refuge or if you want, under the starry sky again.

Here below you’ll find more details about the route and the complete program.

About the guide

guide profile img

AEGM and UIMLA guide from Spain.

I'm a mountain lover since I went up to Mulhacén at the age of 14. Since then I've been to mountains all around the world, always looking for new challenges.

I like to share the love I feel for the mountains, and all what I learned out there during all these years.

Some of my credentials:

- Certified mountain guide for blind people (UNED foundation)
- Wilderness Guide (WGA, currently in process)
- Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA certified)
- Member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM) and member of the Union of International Mountain Leaders Association (UIMLA)

Regarding my experience, I've done ascents and trekkings in the Alps, Pyrenees, Atlas range, Andes, Himalayas and Norway. I'm originally from Granada, in Andalucía, so I know in detail the region of Sierra Nevada.
