Hi and welcome Birthe!
If you are planning to come to Sierra Nevada
during wintertime, haven´t you been thinking about skiing? A good part of the Sierra is covered in snow and not really advisable for hiking if you are not into ski trekking. Nevertheless, in the foothills you can go for nice excursions as well in winter. Places I know personally and which I can recommend are the Cahorros de Monachil
, Cumbres Verdes
and Güejar Sierra
. All these villages are situated relatively close to the capital and can be reached by bus, although the connections are sometimes very bad, especially on Sundays and Bank holidays.
Another part of the Sierra Nevada, more towards the Mediterranean Sea, is the Alpujarra
. Here is situated the Barranco de Poqueíra and the white villages of Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira. This is a very magic area, with a lot of water; I can especially recommend it in spring!
Other beautiful natural reserves in the province of Málaga
are the Sierras of Almijara
in the east; and more to the west, the Sierra de las Nieves
and Sierra Bermeja
Below you can check a link to a website with routes in German and English, maybe be you can find something interesting there! Enjoy and thank you for posting in our forum! http://www.topwalks.net/es/sierra_nevada.htm
