The Sierra Nevada, the highest mountain range in the Iberian Peninsula, is easily accessible by several roads and has a number of marked hiking trails. The mountain range is about a hundred kilometers long, so the possibilities for hiking are really extensive. Let's see what all the interesting things you can do here.

Trip to Velet

Probably the most famous trip in the entire Sierra Nevada is a drive from Granada to the Hoya de la Mora car park (2,515 m above sea level) and from there to the second highest peak of the mountains – Velet. But count on the fact that during the winter and spring there is a lot of snow and in the summer you will be sintered by heat

The village of Alpujarras

On the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada you will find the picturesque villages of Alpujarras such as Capileira, Bubion, Trevelez or Orgiva, which are definitely worth a visit.


To the north of the mountains lies the interesting city of Guadix with a beautiful cathedral, castle and especially cave dwellings. From the city there is of course a nice view of the Sierra Nevada
