Day trip to Sierra Nevada
The Sierra Nevada mountain range is only 40km from Granada and you can easily drive there to explore. It is a popular tourist destination both for skiing in the winter at the Pradollano ski resort or during the warmer summer months since there are plenty of walking trails and many things to discover. At 3478 metres above sea level, Mulhacén is the highest peak in Spain and the third highest in Europe.
There are also organised guided tours which include transport from Granada. They last a day and are lead by an official mountain guide who will tell you about the Sierra Nevada mountains, lakes, legends, plants and wildlife. Click here for more information about the Sierra Nevada guided tour.
