  • Spend two days exploring the gorgeous Sierra de Gredos.

  • Get to the top of different peaks and contemplate amazing views.

  • Get to relax in the comfortable Refugio Laguna Grande.

 

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.
