The Sierra de las Nieves Trail - GR 243 runs from north to south through almost all the towns of the Sierra de las Nieves Biosphere Reserve, a nature paradise where man has achieved perfect balance with nature throughout the centuries. Its various stages connect the villages from Ronda to Istán. The route, which runs almost exclusively through areas of low difficulty so that it can be used by most people, can also be done in the opposite direction: south–north.

The impressive natural richness of the Sierra de las Nieves, with its fairy-tale landscapes, a wide variety of ecosystems and species that can only be found here —such as the "pinsapo", a rare and beautiful fir tree that is native to the southern Iberian Peninsula— along with an impressive cultural, historical and ethnological heritage were the basis for declaring this territory a Natural Park and World Biosphere Reserve.

The Sierra de las Nieves Trail - GR 243 allows you to enter and get to know this spectacular natural area, and is the main axis for the important network of trails that exists in this Biosphere Reserve.

(The El Burgo to Yunquera stage and vice versa requires authorisation from the Department of the Environment of the Regional Government of Andalusia)
