2-day Mulhacen ascent in Sierra Nevada


Discover the amazing Mulhacen on this 2-day ascent in Sierra Nevada along with Alejandro, an UIMLA certified mountain leader.

Iberian System

2 Days

Jun - Sep




I invite you to join me on this 2-day ascent to the highest point in the Iberian Peninsula: the Mulhacen. With 3,480 meters above sea level, it is located inside the Sierra Nevada National Park in Granada and it’s part of the Penibetico mountain system.  

As for the itinerary, the starting point of our trip will be Hoya del Portillo in Capileira. On the first day, you will admire the most amazing pine trees. Then we’ll hike up to the Poqueira Refuge (2,500 meters), where we’ll spend the night.

On the second day, after breakfast, we’ll reach the Caldera Lake (3,000 meters) through the Mulhacen River. After a short break, we’ll start the ascent to the summit. During the ascent, you will discover a fantastic view of the astonishing Alcazaba walls. You will also admire the Mosca Lake at the foot of the Mulhacen.   

Take into account that a medium level of experience and fitness is required for this ascent. My last recommendation is to bring:

  • Mountain clothing and shoes

  • Sleeping bag and mat

  • Warm clothing

  • Windbreaker jacket

  • Food and water

  • Walking poles

  • Ice ax and crampons (in winter season)

So request to book and join me now. You won’t regret your choice!

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 this trip



Because of a weekday trip it was not crowded and this was very nice



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 :)
