A unique trekking day in the best spots of Guejar Sierra, in Sierra Nevada (Granada). A full day hiking and enjoying a place of caves, mines and amazing landscapes. A trip for all the family with the company of Rafael, a local ICOpro instructor, who knows the area very well.

Sierra Nevada

1 Day

All year


The trekking routes of Guejar Sierra have become one of the most beautiful trails of Granada. Moreover, this place used to be the connection between the workers of the pyrite and galena mines.

We’ll ascend by the route of the old tram, departing from the ravine of San Juan. We then hike among chestnut and oak trees with the amazing views of the Alcazaba and Mulhacen.

The total distance will be about 22 km. However, if you want to visit the Secret Cave shelter or continue to the Presidios, it can take us a little more time. It will depend on weather conditions as well as the group level.

Remember to bring comfortable clothes and tell me when you’re planning to come to this region. I can organize a perfect trekking program for you and your group!

I will be waiting your contact. You can fill out the form now and I’ll answer as soon as possible! Let’s enjoy this trek in Guejar Sierra together!

Mountain Guide

I'm a lover of adventure sports, with 23 years of experience in almost all its modalities. My passion is climbing, although my profession is more focused on another of my passions: the canyoning. I'm ICOpro Instructor (the only one in Spain), which allows me to join my two passions, sport and teaching.
I have climbed and done canyoning in many countries of the world like Indonesia, Morocco, Argentina, France, Switzerland and India. And what my travels have truly taught me is that what really matters is the people and what they can teach me. I learn from each of the people I lead and I love that.

What people are saying about Rafael


Excellente journée avec nos deux hôtes. Les paysages sont époustouflants et les guides ont rendu l’activité accessible et amusante. Merci!


Es hat wirklich viel Spaß gemacht! Und auch wenn ich etwas ängstlich bin, habe ich mich immer sicher und in guten Händen gefühlt. Die Sprünge sind wirklich nicht verpflichtend, aber die Gruppe ("La Familia") hat mir Mut gemacht und ich habe mir alles zugetraut :) Man kann auch immer erst einmal schauen, wie es die anderen machen ;) Die Guides geben einem stets die Möglichkeit, einen anderen Weg zu gehen. Das war jedoch nicht nötig. Wichtig: Unbedingt die Packliste ansehen! Schuhe für's Wasser sind verpflichtend und Wechselschuhe für danach sind wirklich gut. Wenn der Van geparkt hat, geht's in Badesachen etwa 45min bergauf bevor man die Wetsuits anzieht und das Canyoning startet. Good to know: Die Guides haben eine wasserfeste GoPro dabei, um Fotos von der Tour und der Gruppe in Action zu machen ;)



Booked half day Via Ferrata - it turned out to be 1.5 hours via Ferrata and 1.5 hours travelling. Was disappointed with the amount of time actually doing the activity



More information required from Rafa before the trip - we did not know that we would have to drive for 30 mins off-road to get to the start point. We were in a hire car and I was very concerned about damaging the car. We also had 21 people in our group - this is far too many. The trip took about 7 hours because we moved so slowly with so many people.



Rafa, is a terrific guide. My family had a fantastic time on the via feratta route he took us on in Archidona. I found Rafa to be professional, friendly, client-centered and safe. You will have to initiate the majority of the contact, but the experience is likely to be the highlight of your trip to southern Spain. I plan on recontacting Rafa when we are next in the area. He provides all the needed equipment.
