Take me to: Hotels - Sierra Nevada Ski Resort
The Sierra Nevada national park is easily accessible from the surrounding villages and towns which provide accommodation for tourists, whether it be a hostal, a hostel or a hotel. There are a few villages located just inside the park providing lodges and rural houses where one can stay as a guest, however the majority are located on the outskirts. There is a network of mountain refuges (refugios) in the Sierra. Generally, refugios offer beds and showers at a reasonable price. Book in advance for the Refugio Poqueira, 608 554 224. Refugios vivacs are stone shelters where you can stay for free. Camping is now banned in the national park.
In the Sierra Nevada ski resort, you will find many forms of accommodation ranging from basic hostels to luxury hotels. There is no shortage of hotels in the resort, accommodating the waves of tourists that descend upon this beautiful destination in the winter. A popular option for tourists is to rent out an apartment or chateau for their holiday, of which there is an abundance on offer through various letting companies. There are also hostals (guesthouses) and youth hostels available in the area.
