    Reach the peak of the stunning Morrón del Mediodía, in the Sierra Nevada National Park using the ancient technique of snowshoeing. Join me for an amazing adventure on this Spanish treasure.

    Snowshoeing is an amazing sport for winter and outdoor lovers! If you haven’t tried it (or if you have), you’ll learn that the snow rackets allow you to move faster and easierly through difficult snowy terrains. It also gives you the advantage of not having to follow a marked trail. Get ready to have some fun!

    We’ll start our tour from Puerto de la Ragua, located at 2000 meters above sea level, and slowly ascend towards Morrón del Mediodía at 2760 meters. This is the highest point in Marquesado del Zenete. We’ll get stunning views of the Mulhacen, Alcazaba and Veleta.

    Make sure to bring mountain boots, adequate clothing, a windbreaker, food and plenty of water. The snowshoes and sticks for the trip are included in the price.

    So send your request and get ready for an exciting snowshoeing trip! I would love to guide you on this breathtaking National Park.

    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 :)
