  1. Alpine Introduction Dec 21 - by Ryan Thomas

    Been a great week out here in Sierra Nevada with @spanishhighsmountainguides getting to grips with some alpine basics and then doing my first peak over 3000m.

  2. Self Guided Support - by Sam Briels

    We are back in Lanjaron, safe and sound! Thanks you so much for the amazing service you guys have provided. We were absolutely blown away by it, especially since we only booked the taxi ride through you guys. Also, I normally don’t do this but I added a review to google which I hope will help you guys in the future.

  3. Cortijo Hornillo - by laura Hill

    Thank you so much for all your help organising and answering all my questions. I really enjoyed the walk and feel much more confident in my hiking ability after Jens was so supportive.

  4. Supporting Kenton Cool Visit October 2021 - by Kenton Cool

    Thanks guys….for everything

    Great day today. Thanks for your help.

    You guys have been magical on organising this trip

    Big shout out to Richard from the logistical team I used down here, Spanish Highs. The Sierra Nevada, how beautiful is that, it has a stark beauty to it. A lot of the guides that I work alongside in Europe have talked about the Sierra Nevada, looks really wild and remote, and it is. Good weather this time of year, generally, it's just had it's first dusting of snow and it ticked all the boxes, relatively easy to get to, covid friendly, and I will certainly be coming back, for sure. It's a really interesting, none aggressive, in terms of the hills are quite rolling but there's some fantastic ridge lines, scrambling with abseils and easy grade climbing, great food, great coffee and great climate. Yeah definitely be going back, it's a beautiful place."

  5. Pico de Cartujo October 2021 - by Ian Stansfield

    Just a quick note to say what a great day we had on Thursday with Felipe.

    The north ridge of Pico de Cartujo (full fat version) was great and we were lucky with the weather.

  6. Mulhacen Morning Sunrise Oct 21 - by Annie Moran

    We had a wonderful time and Jens took care to bring us up and down the mountain safely.

    We appreciated his expertise on the mountain and his guidance around pole use, breathing and walking technique.

  7. Trail Running Sierra Nevada Sept 21 - by Des and Deborah

    Great two days out on the trails in the Sierra Navada Mountains. Chris has a vast amount of interesting knowledge about the area. As an added bonus, Chris helped us improved our trail running techniques. Which has made a huge difference to our running. Was a great couple of days. Highly recommend 5 stars.

  8. Mountaineering week March 2021 - by Callum

    Brilliant thanks. Also can I please stress how fantastic Leo was all week. I couldn’t have asked for a better guide. A great week in the mountains, thanks again.

  9. 2 Day Winter Skills January 2021 - by Ann and Alistair

    We had a brilliant time, my confidence is much higher but understand we still have lots to learn, little by little eh. Leo was brilliant patient and informative. The refuge was chilly but not as cold as the other week at piedra negra, the sleeping bags we bought although not expensive or the best we could by are fab once in them we are often too warm which is not to be complained about.

  10. Mulhacen in July 2020 (Helen Dell family) - by Helen Dell

    Thank you for these great photos. We have had a fantastic three days with Spanish Highs and really enjoyed ourselves. Leo has been an excellent guide and did a good job keeping the kids motivated and trudging up the last bit to the summit of Mulhacen. Thanks for the photos - great snaps for the family album and shows that the sky’s the limit even in CV times! A very happy and enjoyable time. Our thanks to you and Richard for making it happen.
