Description

In the south of Spain, the Sierra Nevada mountains rise spectacularly, and look absolutely wondrous.

For a full week I would like to guide on a hiking adventure through the amazing Sierra Nevada mountains. I would like to show you all of the beautiful sights in the area. And with 7 days to do it, I believe you will have ample time to not just see, but truly take in and appreciate this amazing mountain range.

We will be trekking for an average of approximately 12 kilometres per day. We will also be enduring an average rise in altitude of approximately 800 metres per day. As a result, participants should be in good enough physical condition to maintain that pace.

The list of highlights you will see during this trip is long and incredible. Some examples include the following.

  • An ascent of Veletta (3,398m)

  • An ascent of Alcazaba (3,371m)

  • Hidden lakes

  • Alpine flowers

  • An ascent of Mulhacen (3,479m)

Along with the great hiking you will get to enjoy on this trip, you will also get to relax and rest during the evenings in the lovely Alcadima hotel. This wonderful hotel, which will be our home base is located in the beautiful spa town of Lanjaron, which is very close to the Sierra Nevada mountains.

The rooms of the Alcadima are well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Many of the rooms also include a balcony where you can enjoy fantastic views of a nearby castle, as well as the mountains.

The Sierra Nevada mountain range in southern Spain is a wonderful place to visit and explore. And for 7 days I would be happy to guide you through it. To join me, all you have to do is send me a request.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
