Walking Holidays in Andalucia

skiing in Sierra Nevada

The Sierra Nevada mountains range has the most southerly ski resort in Europe. Although it is quite small in comparison to other European resorts, the facilities are considered top rate and it has, therefore, hosted numerous national and international ski events. Depending on the snow levels, the season generally runs from the end of November or the beginning of December until sometime in April.

The nearest airport to the Sierra Nevada is the airport of Granada. From there you are still about a 40 minutes car drive to Pradollano, the mountain top skiing resort.

The bigger and better linked airport is the one of Malaga (Pablo Picasso - AGP), but it is about 1.5 hours away by car to Granada.

There is a fast motorway from Malaga to Granada. If you like to enjoy the Sightseeing then the best route by car is the seaside road from Malaga to Torre del mar, Torrox Costa, Nerja, Almijara, La Herradura, Torre del Diablo, Salobreña, Maracena, Vélez de Benaudalla and then Granada.

It is worth including Granada and Al-Hambra in your itinerary. You could stay in Granada and visit both the ski resort in Sierra Nevada and Al-Hambra in addition to sightseeing Granada itself.
