Climb the Pico Veleta!

If you like to explore the highest mountains in the world by bike, then the Pico Veleta package is for you. An ultimate highlight: with its 3,395 altimeters the Pico Veleta is the highest tarmac covered mountain pass in Europe. Well, as for covered, the last mile (2 km) will be an adventurous trip on the rough, non-paved road. You have to try this climb!

Sunhillcycling offers an all-inclusive cycling holiday. Every day we will arrange a beautiful daytrip and on the last day we will ride to Granada to climb the Pico Veleta.

Our transfer will take you through Granada to a small place, Pinos Genil. It is situated at the foot of the climb to the Pico Veleta. From here, it will be a climb of 26 miles (42 km) along the ski village Sierra Nevada (2,100 altimeters). In Sierra Nevada there is a top sports centre, where many professionals and professional teams have their internships. In 2015, the road surface to the top was re-paved, which means that you can now drive over good road surface up to 1 mile for the mountain top. Only the last mile will be hard to ride, but the spectacular view to the mountains of Africa is totally worth it!

This offer is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website.
