Stewart T – Walking, Scrambling & Via Ferrata Week (April 2017)

Had a great time with Sam and Laura, as you say they are really good people, and I enjoyed my time with them. I’ve offered them the flat in London for Christmas and New Year so they can experience a bit of grey dampness away from all your end to end sunshine.
Just written a review for Trip Advisor.
Thanks for everything, I came a bit stressed and wired and had such a great time with you both, and of course Ms dry martini.
Best wishes to Jose and Felipe, and I’ll be in touch about both trips!

Carly Brooks – (Scrambling, October 2016)

I went on a scramble with my guide Victoria. We had a great day, she pushed me and encouraged me all they way. Victoria is an amazing and confident guide with great knowledge on the area which she’s more than happy to share as well as taking tons of pictures along the way that i can take back with me!

Can’t wait to come back.

Cheers for the photos. And thanks for the guiding and help during the trip. I think all three of us found it to be a great experience.

Had a great time in the Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Cogollos, guided by Spanish Highs. All the scenery and landscapes are brilliant and definitely worth visiting. There is also some great fun to be had on the rocks and slopes of the mountains, with multiple scrambles and hikes to choose from. Our guides, Richard, Jose and Victoria, were all very accommodating and informative, making the trip even better. Whether you’re new to being in the mountains or more experienced and looking for new adventures, Spanish Highs’ accommodating style, organization and openness will make sure you get a brilliant and enjoyable trip.

Thanks for the photos and for organising the trip, we had a great time.


Simon G via Trip Advisor “Hiking in the high Sierra Nevada mountains”

Spent a cracking few days with Richard Hartley and friends in Lanjarón which we used as our base for hiking in the high Sierra Nevada mountains. A day scrambling on Penon de la Mata and a fantastic summit day on a snowy Mulhacen. From the 1st email to the goodbye handshake the trip couldn’t of gone any better. We will definitely be returning

Dalquhurn via Trip Advsior “Hiking/ climbing in Sierra Nevada”

Along with 9 other friends I spent a week with these guys in May 2015. Take it from me Richard and his team are excellent. If you want adventure in Sierra Nevada the go with these guys. Helpful, professional, good fun – and all at a really fair price. I’ll be back next year for more of the same. Alastair.

TomP via Trip Advisor “Fantastic week in the mountains”

We spent six amazing days with Spanish Highs covering a huge range of mountaineering experiences. From Alpine gulleys and peaks, through ice climbing, ski mountaineering, a stay in an unguarded refuge deep in the mountains to grade 1 and 2 scrambling, and Via Ferrata. The region is simply stunning and I was deeply impressed by the quality of the guides. Richard and his crew were professional, friendly and also knew the best watering holes!

Ben Clark (via Trip Advisor – 2 day trek Mulhacen, Alcazaba, July 2014)

“Absolutely fantastic trip – Excellent, professional guides”

Having just completed a 2 day expedition to the summit of Mulhacén (at just under 3500m, the highest mountain on Spain’s mainland) I would thoroughly recommend Richard and Spanish Highs for any kind of adventure, particularly exploring the vast Sierra Nevada.

We reached the summit on the second day, but on the way also summitted Alacazaba, bivvy’ed next to a lake, saw the Milky Way + a couple of satellites whizzing around, and traversed the treacherous north face of Mulhacén, all experiences I won’t forget.

Excellent trip, already planned the next one.

Davina, Alex & Eve Green (Activity holiday, April 2014)

Thanks Spanish Highs for a fabulous experience! We took a family holiday at the start of April 2014 with no prior experience of any outdoor activities and wanted to try a few new things in beautiful surroundings. We tried scrambling, rock climbing, sleeping out in the mountains under the stars, and walking the GR7. Eve(10) loved the rock climbing, I loved the birds and butterflies and we all loved the amazing scenery. One of the highlights for us was the honour of having Rita La Perrita the lovely mountain dog accompany us on our two-day walk to La Cebollar. We had loads of fun sledging with her! Thanks for great memories and the best holiday photos ever!
Definitely be back!
