Description

The Sierra de Gredos is one of the largest mountain subranges of the Central System. It is located in Spain, covering part of the provinces of Toledo, Madrid, Cáceres, Salamanca, and Ávila. I am offering a 2-day tour to explore this amazing area and reach two of its most popular summits: La mira and Morezón.

The Sierra de Gredos comprises primarily granite. This rock consists mainly of mica, quartz and feldspar. They form imposing vertical faces around the area. 

The first day we will hike to La Mira  (2,341 ms), one of the most visited peaks of Gredos. It is easy to climb and stands in a wonderful environment. From its summit, we will enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view: the peaks of Los Galayos, the upper part of Circo de Gredos, and in the distance the Montes de Toledo.

The following day we will head up to Morezón (2,389 m.). This peak  is the big buttress closing the east side of Circo de Gredos, a glacial cirque located in the northern slope of Sierra de Gredos. The climb is rather easy, and you will also enjoy very good views of Laguna de Gredos and Pico Almanzor, the highest mountain in central Spain .

So, if you are up for this wonderful hike around Sierra de Gredos, please contact me! I’ll be glad to guide you to the summits of La Mira and Morezón!

I you only have one day, I’m also offering this outings separately. Check them out: La mira and Morezón.

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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
