Sierra Nevada

4 Days

Jun - Oct

Very high



Guarding the Spanish southern coast stands the Sierra Nevada mountain range. We will trek this incredible range, the second highest in Western Europe after the Alps, in 4 days.

Stretching 50 kilometers from southwest to northeast, 15 mountains soar beyond the 3,000-meter mark, with the summit of 3,482 meters at the Mulhacén peak. This is the highest mountain in the Iberian Peninsula.

The Mulhacén peak is decorated in legend, having been the alleged burial site of the muslim king of Granada.

We may cover this whole chain of peaks during our 4 days of trekking, as our programme follows closely the highest sections of the massif.

To enjoy the most demanding high mountain traverse in southern Europe, participants are required to have excellent fitness as well as mountaineering experience. 

Reserve your place now among the heights of the Iberian peaks in southern Spain. Come with me on this 4-day trek to the stunning Sierra Nevada mountain range.
