On a clear day, the peak of Veleta offers 360° views of the surrounding mountains of the Sierra Nevada, the Mediterranean and even Africa. In summer and early autumn the ascent is remarkably straightforward for being such a high mountain, and the fresh mountain air at the summit is a welcome relief from the heat at lower altitudes.

This walk starts at an altitude of over 3,000 metres, making use of the ski lifts that are open in summer. As a result, you get a taste of the high mountains without having to walk up thousands of metres! There are great views down to the city of Granada and the surrounding mountains. The walk takes you to some beautiful mountain tarns and meadows where the water bubbles up from the ground, before heading back down through the ski station.

This walk starts from Borreguiles, at the top of the cable car. The first part of the walk isn’t particularly attractive, as it goes through part of the ski resort. After that, however, the countryside becomes much prettier, and there are some great views. The last part of the walk takes you down into the Dilar valley. Here there are lots of small streams and some lush meadows that are perfect for a picnic.
