Fantastic hiking experience
Megan_M, 04-07-2022
The tour was fantastic with a mix of challenging hiking landscapes, great views and learning all about the Sierra Nevadas.

Jaime was a wonderful guide and we would highly recommend a tour with him to anyone looking for a unique adventure while visiting Granada.
Fantastic experience!

We had a fantastic day walking with Jaime, his dog Ki and met Melissa and Tim. The weather in the city was very hot so we didn’t need the extra layers that we brought as the temperature in the mountains was very comfortable. I was the least fit of the group and struggled at the last incline after 2 hours of walking. But the group went at my pace and I was able to enjoy the walk despite many breaks to get my breath. It was absolutely beautiful in the mountains and the best way to get away from modern life. Jaime was an incredibly good guide providing support and information about the history of the area, the fauna and flora. The walk back was very easy and we celebrated with a beer. It was well worth the effort and I would thoroughly recommend it.
Great views across the Sierra Nevada and brilliant guide that kept us safe

We had the most amazing hike with 'Jamie' and Kai. Jamie was considerate all the way and helped me when I was struggling. Kai, his dog kept us fully entertained with his antics in the snow. It was a brilliant trip and I would thoughly recommend.

This is an amazing experience! A day among the snowy peaks. I learnt about the flowers and the rocks and had lunch alongside Spain's second highest mountain. Thanks so much Jaime and his dog. An unforgettable day out. The view on the drive up and down from the start point is also breath taking.
Great Hike experience

I was picked up in Granada and driven out to the Mountians for a Hike. There was much to see on the drive over and the Hike was incredible. It was in Mid November so there was ice at the top of some of the Mountains so we took a trail at a lower altitude but it was still a good hike with many vantage points of the main peaks of Granada.
We looked out for Mountain Goats and Eagles but did not see any
