Description

Discover the mythical Veleta Peak on this ascent in Sierra Nevada, Spain.

The Veleta Peak belongs to the Sierra Nevada in the Penibetica mountain range. It is located in Granada, Andalusia and with 3,398 meters, it is the fourth highest summit in Spain.

From the roof of the mountain, you will see the amazing Mulhacen (3,482 meters) and the incredible Alcazaba (3,371 meters). These are the second and the sixth highest summits in the country respectively. Also, if weather allows we can admire the African Continent behind the Mediterranean Sea. A really stunning landscape!

If you want to take this ascent, consider that a medium level of fitness is mandatory. My last recommendation is to bring:

  • Mountain clothing and shoes

  • Windbreaker jacket

  • Food and water

  • Walking poles

  • Ice ax and crampons in winter season

Do not hesitate and come with me on this ascent to the Veleta Peak in Andalusia. I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed. Request to book now!

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!

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.

I really enjoyed the trip! Alejandro was a great guide. The only few things to work on are: -Alcazaba was not possible because of snow. I definitely understand this but it was not communicated until we were on the trail -Explore share was difficult as a third party to communicate with- It worked better once I got email working directly -I think the cost for the trip is high but if it goes to the guide and not explore-share that's one thing.. if a lot goes to explore-share I would prefer to find guides on my own

Excellent service. Great communication from company and flexible to meet needs. Guide was superb. Very accommodating and suggestive of different routes and activities to maximise the experience. Highly recommend to anyone looking to hire a guide.
