Sierra Nevada

01 Jul 2018


Go somewhere else than the Alhambra!

A lot of people already know about the beauty of Granada and almost everyone visits Granada on their roadtrip through Andalucía. Sadly, a lot of people who visit Granada forget to visit the Sierra Nevada. That's a shame, because after visiting the big city, who doesn't want to see some beautiful nature?

You can easily combine a trip to Granada with the Sierra Nevada. I recommend you to stay three nights or four nights in Granada. This is perfectly enough for you to see the city and the Sierra Nevada before you continue your roadtrip. In summer it might be better to stay a little longer because we all know that in mid-summer, it can get really warm in the south of Spain. That means that doing stuff in the middle of the day is almost not possible. From the centre of granada its only a 40 minute drive to enter these amazing mountains.

The area has a lot to offer. It has a lot of amazing routes and sights. Some interesting places for you to discover might be:

Las Alpujarras

This beautiful historical area located south of the Sierra Nevada National Park is really worth to visit. You can find amazing little villages surrounded by incredible nature.

Los Cohorros

If you are looking for an adventure on your trip through the Sierra Nevada, try Los Cohorros. This ravine has some breathtaking sights and will guarantee a adventurous day trip.

The mountain range is also perfect to ski. A lot of people come to the Sierra Nevada to do this. The Sierra Nevada has even hosted a skiiing world cup in 1996. There are a lot of resorts and slopes for you to try out when skiing through the mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

So, if you are into nature and wants something different during your roadtrip besides the cities, try the Sierra Nevada!
