Hi Trek Sierra Nevada. Circular Route

Welcome to the South. To the highest mountains of the Iberian Peninsula. To the southernmost mountain range in Europe. To the snow kingdom with views over the Mediterranean Sea. The Yabal Sulayr, or Monte del Sol (hill of the sun) as the Muslims used to call it when they ruled this land. If what you are looking for is the sun and the good weather, you have chosen the right option. Sierra Nevada stands out for the good climate, although being a high-altitude route –we will be above 3000 metres in many occasions– we can never let our guard off. Big climbs and legendary summits await us like Alcazaba or Mulhacén, with its 3.428 metres, the highest mountain of the Iberian Peninsula, just to start off, next to beautiful mountain lakes in a space that, despite its arid appearance, it is considered Europe ?s botanical jewel. In fact, it gathers two categories of protection, National Park and Biosphere Reserve.We will not only visit the most alpine area of Sierra Nevada, but also we will have time to see and relax in some of the most famous white villages of Alpujarras, like Capileira or Trevélez.
