Depart from selected Granada hotels in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach to begin your journey into the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. As the most extensive mountainous area in Spain, the Sierra Nevada massif is habited by the most diverse range of fauna in Europe; listen as your guide offers fascinating insight into the multiplicity of plants and wildlife in the area.
Embark on relaxed exploration of the area with your guide, wandering through deciduous forests comprised of holm oak groves, chestnut tress and Melojo oak groves. Gaze at the jagged peaks of Mulhacen and Veleta, mountains whose summits reach up to 3,482 meters (11,423 feet).
Scan your surroundings for wonderful wildlife, spotting some of 20 species of butterflies as they flutter amid the trees. Return to the coach and venture back to Granada, stopping for some traditional tapas at a rustic restaurant along the way (own expense).
