Sierra Nevada Trips

The Sierra Nevada (meaning 'snowy range' in Spanish) is a mountain range in Andalucia, the southernmost region of Spain, and is home to the highest point on the Spanish mainland: Mulhacén at 3479m. Come sun or snow, Sierra Nevada holidays will take you for a walk on the wild side.

Europe’s second-highest range after the Alps, it has rugged mountains, fertile valleys, and forests of oak and chestnut. Just a few miles inland from the Costa del Sol you'd be forgiven for thinking you were on a different planet. The area closest to the coast is Las Alpujarras, a rural landscape of terraced fields, rolling hills and orchards... then rising out of the foothills is the Sierra Nevada, the snow-capped range that towers above the surrounding countryside. Offering ancient villages, sublime views and prime walking territory, this is the place to get away from it all.

Highlights of Sierra Nevada trips 

1. Trek through Las Alpujarras: During the summer months, the hidden valleys of the Alpujarran foothills flourish with almond groves and fruit trees bearing figs, pomegranates and apricots. Whitewashed villages dot the hills between gushing streams and green gorges. This is ideal trekking holiday terrain covering some of Spain's most picturesque and traditional countryside.

2. Moorish magic: The area was one of the last Moorish strongholds in Spain, and this lives on in the unique landscape and architecture. The terraced farmlands are irrigated by an ancient system of channels bringing down melting snow from the Nevada, creating a high-altitude oasis of greenery. 

3. Summer in the Sierra Nevada: The Sierra Nevada comes alive in the summer. Wild flowers spring up beside the paths and tracks, the scent of wild herbs fills the air. Again, there remains much evidence of the Moorish way of life, having been masters of this part of Spain for centuries. Tiny villages cling to steep mountainsides: rugged, weather-beaten hamlets where life has carried on as it has done for generations.
