Av. daily elevation:
The highlight of our Vuelta a Sierra Nevada is undoubtedly the climb to Pico de Veleta, at 3,395m Europe’s highest paved road and the scene of Miguel Angel Lopez’s victory in the 2017 Vuelta. It’s a brutally long and challenging climb (2,600m ascent in 43km at 6.2% average gradient) and you’ll need to be fit to take it on, but it’ll be worth it!
When you get to the top, you’ll have an exhilarating 90 minute downhill mountain biking experience, a great lunch and the thrill of the long descent back to Granada.
There are no shortage of great roads in Andalucía and we'll make sure you ride the best of them.
You’ll be based at the 4* Hotel Granada Palace in Monachil, close to the best roads and just outside the historic and beautiful mountain city of Granada, home to the Alhambra. Your evenings will be spent wandering the narrow streets of the Albaicín, visiting the many excellent tapas bars and we’ll make a special visit to watch Flamenco in nearby gypsy caves.
