Granada is one of the most unique cities in Spain, not only for what lies within, but what surrounds it. The Sierra Nevada is Spain’s highest mountain range and hides some of the most breathtaking and well-managed hiking trails, providing the perfect spot for a day trip.
After a comfortable ride from the city center we will reach the village of Monachil, a tranquil town and the perfect place to unleash the intrepid explorers you’ve been hiding within. We’ve seen many adults and children dig deep to find them! This is the perfect route for family fun and a little adventure.
Here we begin our journey through Las Cahorros and into the peaks of Andalusia. First, meander downhill, through farms and olive groves, between lush vegetation – all against a backdrop of jagged rock. See if you can spot any wayward rock climbers scaling its face!
Keep on your toes, this route is not for the faint hearted. Here, many daring travelers have met their match. Together we will swing across the wooden hanging bridges (not suitable for those with vertigo), the only way to cross the valley’s drop. Inside the gorge who knows what lurks. Scuttle, crawl and jump to find your way out, stay close to your expert guide!
Don’t worry, there are plenty of moments to pause. Inhale the crisp air, take in the peaceful scenes and truly unwind. Make sure you have your camera ready as the mountains are never shy to offer their best angle for some amazing shots.
As we follow the stream of the fresh crystal waters, don’t let the luring glisten tempt you in for a dip. The waters can be icy! And then, you have made it. Return to the city, tired and rejuvenated.
