Granada is a must-see destination for the thousands of ski lovers who come every winter to practice this sport in Sierra Nevada. Many travelers choose the city of Granada as their headquarters.

WHERE TO GO WITH YOUR RENTAL CAR

Our departure point is one of the most popular destinations in Granada: its ski station. In winter its white mountains invite those who are eager to enjoy a day in the snow. Hoya de la Mora, one of the most popular spots for star gazing in Spain, is located here too. In the warmer months Sierra Nevada is an idyllic place for hiking or riding a bike.
Drive along the road A-395 for 50 minutes, as the distance from the ski station and the center of Granada is about 36 kilometer.
