What You Can Expect

Sierra Nevada Day Trip from Granada

Sierra Nevada, Spain

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).

The guide, Michael was very friendly, very willing to share information and to answer many questions. He also had patience for all our requests.
The scenery was wonderful, as was the weather, - and in all, it was a day to remember! Thank you!

We had a wonderful tour up to the sierra Nevada's. The views on the way up were awesome and so great to get up on the snow . Michael our guide couldn't have been better and he was so obliging and helpful and he was so knowledgeable about the whole area as well as Sapin. Thanks Viator.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2014

My husband and I enjoyed the tour. We were the only ones and we were in a car. The driver was very friendly and informative and it was pleasant spending time with him and getting his perspectives on living in the Granada region. The view was good and the weather superb. However, the trip was shortened - we started late and returned early as we ran out of things to do. It was more a half day tour - fortunately we had only paid for the 'bus tour' and as a the private trip - so the price was right. It met our needs for the day as we did not have time to do the longer southern Sierra Nevada tour. We returned to Granada for a late lunch. This was fine.
