Sierra Nevada National Park is a perfect location for many beautiful hikes. This is just a selection:


A very famous one is Vereda de las Estrellas. This route incorporates one of the classic hikes of the Sierra Nevada, it forms a circuit using a higher path on the other side of the valley, which gives you a more open view of the rugged north faces of the three highest peaks in the mountain range -Mulhacén, Veleta and Alcazaba. A long walk, but well worth the effort. The scenery in this deep valley is stunning, and the Vereda de la Estrella path, originally built to access the Estrella copper mine, is a feat of engineering. If the full walk seems too much, it's still worth considering going part way along the main path.


Lavaderos de la Reina means “the Queen’s washing place”. It is an area of lush meadows fed by mountain springs. By far the best time to visit is in late spring or early summer, when the melting snow feeds the gushing streams. The first part of the route also gives some great views of the Sierra Nevada. This is a long walk, but not particularly difficult, although there is a steady climb at the beginning, and you also need to clamber down some rocks beside the waterfall. Remember to check the conditions locally before you go - the area can still be snow-covered well into May or even June.


There are many more possibilities to hike, also shorter hikes and we have many maps in the B&B at your disposal. You can also find maps and hikes on the website of   TREK SIERRA NEVADA

Biking (MTB) Gravel and roadbiking


The B&B is a perfect base for biking with beautiful trails for MTB, gravel bike, road bike, with or without a gide, with gps or just a map. Many years la Vuelta de España passes through Sierra Nevada and in 2016  passed through Güéjar Sierra and up the Haza Llana with climbs up to 22% to finish at the visitors center of Sierra Nevada.


If you wish to rent a roadbike and do some serious touring, we can offer you a specialised dutch guide who knows all about great routes to do and has excellent bikes for rent: Rent-a-bici


Of course you can hire or bring a mountainbike or motor bike and go by yourself in the mountains, but Joël is also a very fanatic cyclist and also a motor driver. He will be very happy to guide and accompany you on beautiful daytrips. 

Horseback riding in Sierra Nevada


In the mountains, at 15 minutes by car, lies the beautiful rustic cortijo las Encinillas, where Victor runs a horse centre in the old cortijo of his family. You can have a trip from 1 hour up to several days in the Sierra Nevada. Victor speaks also English.  Go to the website of the Holly Oak.
