Only an hour and a half drive from Malaga and the Costa del Sol are rising the highest mountain ranges of the peninsula, Sierra Nevada in Granada, the southernmost ski resort in Europe. With the recent rains, this resort located on more than 2,400 meters above sea level, and from where on clear days you can see the Mediterranean Sea and Africa, is preparing for the new 2012-13 season.
Among the varied promotions we also found an offer of the company Hispania Airways, which offers free billing of skiing equipment or Snowboards on its flights to Granada. This promotion, which is already available on the company’s website, will be valid as from the first days of December, specifically the 6th, when the airline starts connecting Granada-Sierra Nevada with London, Rome, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona.
From London-Gatwick flights take place twice a week (Mondays and Fridays, round trip). This offer responds to the growing numbers of British skiers who book a getaway to Sierra Nevada. But not only the British enjoy this ski resort with more sun in Europe, just 30 minutes from the historic city of Granada, about an hour from the Costa Tropical and 90 minutes from the Costa del Sol.
However, if you prefer to stay in the resorts of the warm Costa del Sol but want to enjoy a getaway to the snow and the cold of Sierra Nevada, you can take your flight to Malaga airport and from there book a transfer to Sierra Nevada or hire a car in Malaga.
