The Picon de Jerez is a peak of the Sierra Nevada National Park in Granada, Spain. With 3,088 meters it is one of the highest mountains in the region.

The Sierra Nevada National Park is one of the most popular parks in Spain. It includes many snow-covered peaks of more than 3,000 meters above the sea level with a wide variety of flora and wildlife. The perfect place for a mountaineering adventure!

On this tour, we will reach the summit of the Picon de Jerez and admire other amazing peaks from this mountain range, such as the Alcazaba (3,371 meters), the Veleta (3,398 meters) and the Mulhacen (3,482 meters).

For this tour, it is important to bring:

  • Mountain clothing and shoes

  • Windbreaker jacket

  • Food and water

  • Ice ax and crampons in winter season

Finally, remember that you’ll need a medium level of fitness and experience to fully enjoy this ascent.

Come with me and enjoy the fantastic view of the highest peaks in the Sierra Nevada from the roof of the Picon de Jerez. I will be happy to safely guide you through this incredible mountain.

Mountain Leader

UIMLA Mountain Leader | AEGM Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!

What people are saying about Alejandro



The trip was great. Unfortunately, due to very bad weather conditions, we were not able to climb to the top of the Toubkal



Our guide was actually Ruben. Alejandro was sick. Ruben was just great. Definitely 5 stars.



Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.



I really enjoyed the trip! Alejandro was a great guide. The only few things to work on are: -Alcazaba was not possible because of snow. I definitely understand this but it was not communicated until we were on the trail -Explore share was difficult as a third party to communicate with- It worked better once I got email working directly -I think the cost for the trip is high but if it goes to the guide and not explore-share that's one thing.. if a lot goes to explore-share I would prefer to find guides on my own



Excellent service. Great communication from company and flexible to meet needs. Guide was superb. Very accommodating and suggestive of different routes and activities to maximise the experience. Highly recommend to anyone looking to hire a guide.
