Spanish Highs Mountain Guides provide a wide range of activity holidays including walking & hiking, trekking, scrambling, mountaineering, snowshoeing and skiing in the Alpujarras, Sierra Nevada (highest mountains in western europe outside the Alps!) and other varied destinations in the remote sierras of Andalucia Province, southern Spain. Also regular expeditions to the Southern Patagonian Icecap.
The area provides great opportunities for all, from the high and wild mountains in winter, to the more gentle spanish walking found in the hills of the Alpujarras. Downhill ski packages are provided for the alpine skier. There is something to interest everybody. Our sites provides a wealth of resources for those travelling independently or those who just want to learn more about these wonderful mountains! Easy access is available with flights to Granada, Malaga or Almeria airports. We offer trips of any duration and any start date. We cater for both the single person and also Group Walking Holidays. Also support for self guided climbers, walkers and trekkers.
In our blog "Inspiring the Adventure" we create new innovative mountain routes, ideas, areas and activities. We hope you will use these as an inspiration for your own adventures here!
