    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.

    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 Calancha

     

    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.

    This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in hiking. We went on 9 and 10 of December but we were lucky and the weather conditions was really good. The nature and the view were fascinating. Alejandro was an excellent guide! Very professional and a very nice guy. All these elements combining together made this trip an unforgettable experience!

    That was a blast, I truly had a wonderful time! Everything went just perfectly, thanks a lot to my guide Alejandro for your professionalism, patience and flexibility. I am looking forward to my next trek in the Sierra Nevada (or elsewhere, who knows?) and will definitely think of Nevalia

    Alejandro could not be more perfect for anyone looking to summit Mulhacén! He planned our winter ascent impeccably and although we were very lucky with the weather (blue skies and epic views - if a tad chilly!), our successful and joyful climb was very much down to him and his attitude . I would also add that as far as mountain refuges go, Mulhacén\'s is a goodie :)
