Sierra de Gredos
Apr, May, Jun
Located in the Iberian Peninsula, Sierra de Gredos is one of the most popular destinations for hiking and mountaineering in Spain. Discover incredible mountains and spend the night in the Refugio Laguna Grande on this 2-day adventure.
On the first day of the program, we’ll depart from La Plataforma and start the ascent through Las Escaleruelas and Prao Puerto, until Puerto de Candeleda (2,080 meters). The path we’ll follow is an old trail formerly used by farmers to transfer their herd. Then, we’ll continue to the ruins of El Refugio del Rey and reach the peak El Morezón (2,389 meters), from where we’ll contemplate the amazing Circo de Gredos. Lastly, we’ll descend to our refuge in Laguna Grande, where we’ll get to rest and spend the night.
On the second day of the program, we’ll hike in the direction of Ameal de Pablo, a rock formation in Circo de Gredos, and get to see great views of the Almanzor, the highest peak in the range. Then, we’ll ascend to El Venteadero mountain pass (2,484 meters) and descend through El Gargantón to return to our starting point.
Please, take into account that we’ll cover a distance of 10-12 kilometers per day and face very steep slopes. That’s why it’s mandatory to have a very good physical condition for this program.
So, would you like to explore these fantastic natural spots in Sierra de Gredos? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. It will a pleasure for me to be your guide!
I also lead a day hike in the range with an overnight in Hostal Almanzor. Check it out!

I am the founder of Enjoy Gredos and a UIMLA-certified mountain leader affiliated to the AEGM (Spanish Mountain Guide Association). Sierra de Gredos is my home, I know its paths and trails like the back of my hand but its beauty never ceases to amaze me.
My passion for the mountains has taken me all over Spain, including the Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Guardarrama, and to some of the Earth's major mountain ranges, including the Alps and the Himalayas. But I always come back to my beloved Gredos! Join me and discover this beautiful region with me.

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!
