Join Jesús, local AEGM-UIMLA Mountain Leader, on a stunning 2-day winter adventure and climb the 3 highest peaks of the beautiful Sierra Nevada range in the southern spanish region of Andalusía.
The Sierra Nevada National Park, besides being the gorgeous landscape serving as backdrop to some of Andalusía’s most beautiful villages, is also home to the southernmost mountain range in all of Europe, boasting more than 20 peaks of over 3,000 m. Its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea makes it a truly unique destination with great biodiversity in its flora and fauna, which have earned it the status of Biosphere Reserve.
Above 2,000m the topography is predominantly made up of wide U-shaped valleys carved by glaciers, with thriving populations of Spanish ibex, wild boars, badgers, martens and wildcats. Around this altitude we also find countless pristine alpine lakes, many of which are also the sources of countless streams and rivers. In the Southeastern part of the range, the narrow gullies and steep gorges are occasionally bisected by tumultuous creeks that form out of nowhere during heavy rainfall.
The three highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada, Mulhacén (3,479 m) Veleta (3,396 m) and Alcazaba (3,371) are undoubtedly the stars of this whole mountainous region, due in part to the fact that climbing them does not present any substantial technical challenges when approached from the south or east sides.
On our journey we will be traveling broadly from North West to South-East, the first summit we’ll reach on the initial day being the stunning peak of Veleta , after which we will descend and spend the night at the scenic Poqueira mountain hut. The following day we will continue our trek towards Altos del Chorrillo and then start our ascent of Mulhacen, the highest peak in Western Europe outside of the Alps. From here we will traverse North to conquer Alcazaba, our third and final summit and then hike all the way down to Trevelez where our adventure will conclude.
I’d be delighted to guide you on this amazing 3-day adventure through the wonderful National Park of the Sierra Nevada. Request to book this trip now and I’ll ensure every detail is taken care of with safety and fun in mind, to make this experience a truly memorable one!

AEGM-UIMLA Guide from Spain
I was born and always lived in the Alpujarra Region and Sierra Nevada. My passion for those mountains drove me towards mountain guiding, and I've been doing so since 1989.
I can guide you in summit ascents, ski touring and mountaineering, hiking around the villages in Alpujarra, or canyoning.
