The Sierra Nevada hiking trail takes walkers to the scenic mountain paths of the Alpujarras, with its picturesque white villages and breath taking mountain views. The Sierra Nevada and Alpujarras region in the province of Granada, in Andalusia in Southern Spain, is an area of unique natural beauty, unspoiled landscapes and fascinating Moorish heritage.

The area’s difficult access meant the Moors kept control over the region for more than a century after the fall of the caliph of Granada in 1492. While an important hiking destination, the Alpujarras remains relatively unknown outside the walking community. A truly hidden gem, the Alpujarras and Sierra Nevada region will amaze you: mountain scenery, pretty whitewashed villages, Moorish heritage, local food, as well as its traditional music and flamenco dancing. You will stay in the heart of the Alpujarras and trek the region’s famous white villages, including Trevélez: the highest village in Europe, at 1,480 meters and famous for its delicious air-cured hams.

We’ll organise luggage transfers for the group so you just have to take a light backpack each morning and enjoy the hike. Our Sierra Nevada hiking trail is ideal for groups of 8 or more people and can be combined with a visit to Granada and the Alhambra palace, an absolute must-see.

This UNESCO-listed palace was built in the 13th century by the Moorish emir of Granada over the ruins of a 9th century Roman fortress and has been inspiration to many legends. Our group tours also include airport transfers. This tour is currently available for groups only. Talk to our group tour specialists to tailor this tour.
