Description

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.

About the guide

I try to do things differently, I do not like boxes. I have lived in the corporate world, in a caravan, working as an au pair, a frustrated travel photographer and a Spanish teacher in Denmark. Travel backpacking from Spain to Vietnam for a year and travel the length of Chile on my mountain bike.

Always in love with travel, I have been working for the outdoor industry since 2008 traveling the world in more than 30 countries. I love to guide and share my experience and mountaineering skills with other lovers of remote and isolated destinations, far from crowded mountaineering centers. When I'm not working or in the mountains you can find me playing the Spanish guitar sitting on the porch of my house sharing the sunset with my lovely girlfriend.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
