The beautiful Sierra Nevada in the Granada Province is one of the best mountain regions in Spain, if not THE best! Not just for winter pursuits, the Sierra Nevada, which is just a short drive from the Lecrin Valley, is also a great place to visit in the summer, with loads of activities from hiking, cycling, snow melt watching, waterfall jumping and much more!
Right now is a great time to go and see the winter snow finally disappear from the top of the mountain. The brilliant blue of the lakes merges into the sky and it’s a truly spectacular site.
While temperatures are pleasantly warm down in the valley in July, once the heat ramps up in August, it’s the perfect time to escape to the mountains and walk, run or cycle up in the fresher mountain air.
