A full board guided walking holiday exploring the high places of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Southern Spain.

Highlights: Wonderful mountain scenery, hidden lakes, alpine flowers, sunny weather. Includes ascents of Veletta, Alcazaba and Mulhacen, mainland Spain’s highest peaks.

A week based in Lanjarón, Spain’s famous spa town during which we offer the opportunity to walk amongst the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountain range, still to be discovered by many British walkers. Early summer offers good settled weather, but not too hot, and an ideal time to enjoy mountain walking at its best.
