Sierra Nevada

8 Days 538 KmAVG 89 Km

From the whitewashed, mountain villages of Las Alpujarras to the Moorish splendour of Granada, and from the eternal snows of the high sierras to the shining Mediterranean Sea, this is a bike ride that stretches the senses. We will take in the full, rugged grandeur of the Sierra Nevada National Park, scaling the panoramic pass, Puerto de la Ragua (2,000m), which regularly features in the Vuelta. On the final day, we will ascend the mighty Pico de Veleta, an extraordinary climb by any measure. At 3,393m, Veleta is the second highest peak in mainland Spain and Europe’s highest road. From the top, the view is astounding: you can see the entire Sierra Nevada range of mountains rolling out to the south and the east in a series of cappuccino brown peaks. Beyond that are the narrow, green, winding valleys of Las Alpujarras and in the distance, the silvery Mediterranean Sea.

In this profoundly rural corner of Andalucia - a region of sleepy villages, arid highlands, terraced hillsides, wooded valleys, almond trees and olive groves

- the weather is excellent. The roads are light on traffic and long on good tarmac and views. Off the bike, there is plenty to enjoy too – from the gentle pace of life in the cafes to the fine architecture and superb tapas in the essential Andalucian city, Granada.
