Alpine Spring in the Sierra Nevada - includes two nights at the Refugio Poqueira (2500m) below the highest peak of the range, Mulhacen (3479m).


As the heat of June builds in Andalucia our walk routes take us to the higher mountain areas within the Sierra Nevada National Park. The beginning of this week provides time to acclimatise to the altitude as well as the warmer weather, and get legs into high mountain ratio ready for the ascent to the peak on Thursday!
