Description

Enjoy 6 days of trekking and get to the top of different peaks in the Sierra Nevada on this fantastic program from Güéjar Sierra. We’ll enjoy trekking in beautiful natural spots and visit the lovely towns in the historical region of La Alpujarra, in Andalusia. Of course, we’ll also get to see incredible views of the range from the top of the mountains.

On day 1, we’ll depart from Güéjar Sierra to the Veleta Peak. This summit, at 3,398 meters of altitude, is the fourth tallest mountain in Spain, and the second in the range. It’s a very popular destination in Sierra Nevada. Plenty of participants come to reach this mountain every year.

On day 2, it will be the turn of Lavaderos de la Reina, a very wild natural area inside the Sierra Nevada National Park. On day 3, we’ll get to Vereda de la Estrella, a nice trail with plenty of vegetation and excellent views of the peaks in the range. On day 4, we’ll go to Poqueira Refuge, very near Mulhacén (3,487 meters), that we’ll reach on day 5. This mountain is the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula. Finally, on the last day, we’ll enjoy trekking in some of the most beautiful towns of La Alpujarra, such as Trevélez, Pampaneira, Pitres and Capileira and then end our program.

As for the difficulty, keep in mind that this program is for participants with prior hiking experience and a good level of fitness. We’ll face a varied terrain and spend 5-8 hours trekking per day.

So, would you like to take part in this outing in the province of Granada? Then send the request to book your place and come discover the best natural spots and villages in Sierra Nevada and La Alpujarra. You won’t regret it!

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.
