Sierra Nevada in Summer
Activities, Routes, Hiking and Horse Riding
In summer, the peaks of the Sierra Nevada change colour from white to green, brown and blue. This is the time to discover its fauna and flora, see its lagoons, walk through the lofty places of these spectacular mountains, and enjoy their tranquility at the end of the ski season.
English Camps are an opportunity to combine language learning with leisure activities and sport in nature, and to make friends. These courses usually last 15 days and are mostly for 7- to 16-year-olds, although this varies with each company.

Trekking in Sierra Nevada
welcome sign at the entrance to Sierra Nevada If what you like is hiking, you can explore the Sulayr trail, which crosses the Sierra Nevada.
This route is divided into 19 sections which can be covered over several days, although there are other, smaller paths that you can cover in a single day.
We recommend visiting the Dornajo Visitor Centre, where you can obtain information on many different footpaths, and on accommodation and restaurants in the area. There you can also take a leaflet or route map of the Sierra Nevada. It is located in Carretera de Sierra Nevada Km 23 (Sierra Nevada).
Phone 958 340 625.
You can also do horse-riding and mountain biking.
Beginners can rent their material from Borreguiles, located at the top of the Sierra Nevada, adjacent to the beginners’ area.
The Sierra Nevada never sleeps. At night, the atmosphere is impressive in the tapas bars, pubs and clubs.
There are activities throughout the year, even when there is no snow. Don’t miss it!
