Full description
After being collected from your accommodation in Granada, you will be driven to 2,500 meters above sea level to the top of the Sierra Nevada Road. From here you will head to the most beautiful glacier valley of Sierra Nevada, San Juan Valley. Here you will learn how the ice has been excavating the rocks throughout thousand of years. You will also encounter beautiful lakes, waterfalls, and shiny rocks, as well as wildlife such as mountain goats, eagles, birds migrating from Africa, and insects and plants that only exist here. This is an easy but beautiful hike, off the beaten path. Your guides know the best secret spots in Sierra Nevada after more than 30 years hiking here. Your tour will eventually conclude in a beautiful panoramic restaurant, where you will enjoy a refreshing drink.

    We really enjoyed our trip and would really recommend it to anyone considering it. The guide knew the area very well and we felt safe with him. We got to see mountain goats and cows on the way up to the peak as well as plants and insects not found elsewhere. You need reasonable fitness for this trip and no fear of heights as you'll be going high. The views are great though and it was strange seeing and touching snow in Spain, and in July too!
