What you'll do

Sierra Nevada, or Sulayr, Mountain of the Sun as it was called by the Muslims, rises up between the provinces of Granada and Almeria like a giant and compact massif with fifteen peaks of over 3,000 metres, including the Mulhacén (3,482 meters ), the highest point on the Iberian Peninsula, and Veleta, the peak that we will climb, is the second highest (3398 meters). Sierra Nevada is the highest mountain range in Europe after the Alps.
After picking you up at your acommodation in Granada, we will drive to the top of the Sierra Nevada road, 2500 meters (8000 ft), where we will head to the most beautiful glacier valley of Sierra Nevada , San Juan valley; the ice has been excaving the rocks during thousand of years: beautiful lakes, waterfalls and shiny rocks, as well as mountain goats, eagles, birds migrating from Africa, and insects and plants that just exist here, as Sierra Nevada is Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO). After 4 hours, we will get the top of the Veleta peak: amazing views of the second highest range in Europe, the Mediterranean sea and even Africa; This is a beautiful hike off the beaten path, as we know the most secret spots in Sierra Nevada after more than 30 years hiking here.

Jamie loves the mountains and the outdoors. This is clear from his passion displayed towards both. With that passion he is able to deliver a great experience up on the mountain. Jamie gave us lots of choice of which routes to take, explaining pros and cons of each. Great guy to chat about hiking with or just share a few jokes. Great hike, beautiful location, awesome guide. A must in Granada.

Had the most amazing day! Jaime is a great guide with a lot of knowledge and things to tell. I’m a little bit afraid of heights but felt totally safe even tho it was very steep thanks to J. The trail we walked was very beautiful and I enjoyed every step of the day. I would absolutely recommend this to people who love to hike and I will probably be back for the highest peak another time. I have nothing negative to say.
