Full description
Strap on your mountain boots for a 2-day hike up Spain’s highest mountain, and climb to the summit of Mulhacén in the Sierra Nevada on an adventure that is suitable for beginners and those with little mountain experience. Day 1: Following a pick-up in Granada, drive to Las Alpujarras, enjoying views of the white villages of Arabic origin on the south face of the Sierra Nevada. Continue to La Hoya del Portillo, the highest point of Mulhacén accesible by car. Start your climb from 6,500 feet (1,980 meters), and hike for about 3-4 hours to the Poqueira Mountain Hut at 8,200 feet (2,500 meters). Take in the views before you turn in for a night under the stars. Day 2: Wake at 06:00 for a mountain breakfast. Then, start your ascent to the summit of Mulhacén at 11,423 feet (3,482 meters). Catch your breath and take in the incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. On clear days, the views extend far and wide over Spain, and as far as the Rif Mountains in North Africa! The return hike to La Hoya del Portillo will take approximately 5 hours, where your transfer back to Granada will be waiting.

    I had my personal guide (only I had booked), we flexibly postponed the appointment by three days due to bad weather on the summit, and I had two wonderful days that were individually tailored to my capabilities by the guide from Nevada Guides. I also learned a lot about plants and stones, the right mixture of conversation and silence. A dream for me! Thanks!

    great experience

    Due to bad weather expectations plans were changed at the last minute. Alternative route/programme was good. The guide Victoria was a very pleasant person taking care of important things.
