The expansive national park offers a range of thrilling outdoor activities, including canyoning, white-water rafting, and mountain climbing up to peaks of 5,000 m (16,404 ft). If you're looking for a more relaxed way to appreciate the scenery, hire a guide and embark on one of the park's many excellent hiking trails. Take it easy in the higher-altitiude regions: you'll tire very easily until you acclimatize to the thinner mountain air. Sierra Nevada is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
