Spanish Highs Mountain Guides - Mountain Activities in the Sierra Nevada
We run activity holidays in the Alpujarras and Sierra Nevada of Andalucia, southern Spain. The area provides great opportunities for all, from the high and wild mountains, in winter, to the more gentle hills of the Alpujarras. There is something to interest everybody.
We have been operating here, from our permanent base in Lanjaron, since 2002 and offer a wide range of holidays. Our enthusiastic team of qualified professional mountain guides live and work here permanently and have vast experience and knowledge of these mountains.
Trips can be of any duration and any start date. Singles and groups are welcomed. Tailor made, family friendly activity courses available and also support for self guided climbers, walkers and trekkers.
