Fantastic, fun day hiking to Trevenque peak, taking in the majestic view, and then exploring the Cumbras Verdes. Jens is an expert guide who knows these mountains and trails and is great company. Richard and his staff are professional and attentive. Highly recommended!

I'd wanted to see those hills and hike across them and Kiersten was the perfect guide to show me how and where. From village to village as I'd hoped, with lots of varied terrain and some excellent naturalist observations. Thank you Kiersten and Richard for a marvellous day.

We've just returned from a perfect 4-day break in Granada with our grown up children. We had 2 days hiking with Richard and Jens and the experience was unforgettable.
We were picked up in Granada, taken to start point in 20 mins by 4-wheel drive, and then absolutely glorious walking. Thank you Richard ( guidebook author to boot!) and Jens for your kind expertise.
We will definitely come again. Our plan was to visit Granada ( wonderful in itself obvs ) with a couple of days walking just to have balance, I'm ashamed to say that I hadn't realised how beautiful these mountains actually are and despite tough competition between delicious meals, Semana Santa ad the Alhambra itself these walks were the highlight.

Just returned back to the UK after a weekend break with girl friends to Granada. Whilst there we had a day trip to Sierra Nevada. All I can say is what a fantastic day we had. Our guides Richard and Felipe were brilliant. It was unsure for a while if we could go snow shoeing as the area was having freak weather and both ski lifts and treking area were closed. This didn't stop us and our guides took us through the pine forrest where it was much calmer.
I would 100% recommend Spanish Highs and will definitely book an excursion with them again.

Thank you again to Richard and Felipe for a memorable day.
