Spanish Three Peaks Trek

Our adventure takes us to the Sierra Nevada National Park, where we’ll trek to the summits of three of Spain’s highest peaks, Veleta, Alcazaba, and Mulhacén – the highest peak in mainland Spain!

Following our arrival in Lanjarón, we’ll enjoy dinner and a briefing on the adventure ahead, and after a good night’s sleep we’ll be ready to spend the next 3 days taking on Los Tres Picos! Veleta is first on our list, with a rough and rocky path to the summit at 3,394m. Next up is Mulhacén, mainland Spain’s highest peak at 3,482m, offering unbeatable views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range from the summit! Our final trekking day is our toughest, taking us to the top of Alcazaba (3,371m), with a steep climb to the summit plateau after a trek through the lush green valley of Siete Lagunas.

Crossing the Sierra Nevada is going to be a tough challenge, but the view across Spain’s mainland from its highest peaks will provide all the motivation we need!
