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.
