Highlights

 
     

    Morezón is one of the most visited mountains in Sierra de Gredos, the main subrange of the Sistema Central, the mountain range located in central Spain. In this day tour we will climb to its summit and enjoy a privileged panoramic view of the entire area.

    Sierra de Gredos is a stunning cirque of high granite spires glaciated in the last ice age. With an altitude of 2,392 metres, Morezón is one of its most popular peaks.  

    We will hike to the top of Morezón over a 13km circular trail starting from Plataforma de Gredos. The traverse is rather easy. It goes by the river Garganta de Prados to the Lagoon of Gredos. In a section of the trail we will use ropes. 

    Morezón is like the Gredo’s balcony. From its summit you will see the natural landscape dominated by Circo de Gredos, an amazing glacial cirque, El Gargantón and the peak of La Mira.

    After taking our time for pictures we will follow the trail to the hut Refugio del Rey. In this charming refuge  where we will eat before going back to La Plataforma, via Garganta de Prado Puerto.

    So, if you are up for this amazing hiking trip to the Morezón peak, please contact me! I’ll be glad to guide you in this area that I know so well!

    And if you want to explore Gredos, we can also hike to La Mira: check out my 2-day hike around Sierra de Gredos, Spain.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I love mountains, nature, animals and sports. That's why I became a guide, so I can share with others these passions and amazing places.

    I live in a small town called Plasencia, surrounded by the beautiful Sierra de Gredos, La Vera (Gredos south face with nice canyons), Jerte Valley (with Garganta de los Infiernos Nature Reserve and it's famous cherries), Monfragüe National Park, Sierra de Gata...

    I started guiding in 2002, and obtained my AEGM and UIMLA guide certifications in 2012. My hobbies are closely related to my work: climbing, alpinism, canyoning, btt, kayaking, skiing...

    If you want to discover the Spanish mountains, getting to know the customs, people, and hidden places, come with me and let's begin the adventure!
