The province of Granada offers a lot of beautiful hikes, from easy afternoon walks to high mountain adventures. Of course a lot of those you can find in the mountains of Sierra Nevada, but there are also amazingly beautiful hikes through the natural parks of Sierra de Huetor and Sierra de la Alfaguara which are next to our house.
On this page we are linking you a few selected hikes, most of which we recorded ourselves. In the first section you can find the ones starting from our hostel, for many of those you don´t even need a car 🙂
Below you will find a few selected hikes, that we can highly recommend. The town of Cogollos Vega has some more hikes on Wikiloc for you.
If you need any more information, feel free to contact us!
You can find all hikes with their GPS tracks on the platforms Wikiloc, Outdooractive and komoot, see the links below each hike.
