(5 reviews)

Although backcountry skiing is the main sport in the Spanish winter season, there are also excellent routes for snowshoeing.

The Pyrenees, both in Aragon and in Catalonia, are a must-see spot for those who love hiking even when the landscape turns white. The Sierra de Guadarrama National Park in Madrid also offers a great environment for snowshoeing. Follow the most popular routes and reach La Bola del Mundo or Peñalara, the highest peak in this mountain range.

What people are saying about Snowshoeing | Spain



Andres was a phenomenal guide who made every day feel special and unique. Even when the weather was so bad we couldn’t go out he found a local oddity for us to go and explore based off of something I mentioned in the first day. I cannot recommend him highly enough!



Great first experience with snowshoes. The route is very scenic, with great view of San Glorio area. It is accessible for all levels, and it's really worth it. Andrés is a great guide and teacher, I hope I can do more adventures with him.



Excelent experience with Andrés as a guide. I booked the activity as my son's birthday gift, then did it again with a friend, and I'll go once again for sure... Andrés is an experienced, didactic and attentive guide. He adapts the route so you can enjoy 100% and be safe. He shares his love and respect for the mountains, and helps everybody to enjoy the trip. It's ideal to disconnect and recharge batteries.
