Would you like to enjoy a classic hike in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Spain? Then this 2-day hike along the Vereda de la Estrella path is for you.

An extremely popular and wonderfully scenic hiking route, the Vereda de la Estrella will show you a number of tremendous highlights in the Sierra Nevada. You will get to gaze at the faces of the highest and most spectacular peaks in the Sierra Nevada. Some of those mountains include Mulhacen (3,479m), Veleta (3,366m) and Alcazaba (3,371m). You will also get to see the area’s rich collection of valleys, rivers and more.

Originally built as a path connecting various mines in the mountains, the Vereda de la Estrella is beautiful, but also crowded at times. As a result, don’t be surprised if you see plenty of people throughout the day. But, rest assured that despite the collection of people, the views are absolutely worth it.

At the end of the first day, we will be staying in the comfortable Refugio de la Cucaracha. On the next day, after a good night’s rest, we will continue the hike.

Due to the length and elevation gain of this trek, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

A wonderful trekking experience for anybody who wants to explore the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain, this 2-day trek on the Vereda de la Estrella is a trip you will never forget. To enjoy this adventure for yourself, please send a request.

Would you like to trek the summit of the beautiful Pico Veleta? If so, come and join us on this full day hike and enjoy some amazing views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

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!
