Sierra Nevada Gravel

361 km / + 8.700 m
Level: ★★★★☆
Departure: June - September
4 or 5 stages


If you want to do something different that it is not possible to do anywhere else in Europe, going to more than 3200 m of altitude and reaching the coast, this is your route.

We have designed a route that can only be done in gravel, high mountain passes that reach almost the highest peaks in Spain, passing through high mountain lagoons and the foothills of the highest mountain in the Peninsula (Mulhacén, 3482 meters) .

The Sierra Nevada Gravel route is a demanding route, although totally different from any other type of route of this type throughout Europe, since it connects the highest peaks in Europe, which can be reached by bike, with the tropical coast and Granada city.

It is a route that you can do in 4 or 5 stages, with 5 stages being the most recommended, due to its great slopes. If it seems too hard for you, we will adjust it to your level and number of days.

You will climb different ports of the Vuelta a España and you will get to know the high mountain environment of Sierra Nevada, where you can enjoy the views of the great colossi (Veleta, Mulhacén, etc.) and the Mediterranean Sea with Morocco in the background.
