Europe’s Highest Cyclable Climb


Climb El Pico del Veleta, Europe’s highest cyclable climb, either by road bike or by mountain bike on both road and off-road routes to reach the peak at 3,394 m (11,135 ft). Ride is fully-supported with shorter options available. This is a full-day ride lasting up to eight hours.

Clear dates


After an early morning start from Granada, our tires will turn upward to sustain a climb lasting 43 km from the city center to the peak of Veleta. Depending on ride choice (road or mtb), we have several options available to us. Those include steeper options for both road and off-road, and shorter options for those who’d prefer a little less suffering. Support vehicle will travel the main road and stop at various meeting points to supply food and drinks. This ride can last up to eight hours with stops to refuel and rehydrate.

What’s Included?

Bike rental (road bike, mountain bike or e-mtb) including helmet and water bottle; guide; SAG support; homemade ride fuel; picnic lunch; transfer from Granada to Prado Llano (for shorter options); the right to say you’ve ridden Europe’s highest climb.

We are an open book when it comes to cancellations and refunds because we want your experience with Trails of the Alhambra to be a positive one from start to finish.
