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


With the warmth of early summer in Andalucia luring us up into the fragrant air of the higher mountains, this itinerary takes us up to enjoy the heights of the Sierra Nevada peaks – second only to the Alps. 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!

"High Mountain week - The top of the Sierra Nevada felt like the top of the world. We got there steadily, so it only dawned on me when we were actually at the top what a real achievement it was. And it really was. Paul and Fi had walked me through both physical and mental aches and pains and maybe even sense of limitation. I went home elated and took on the world!" — S.D.
