Highlights

  • Spend two days hiking across the stunning Sierra de Gredos.
  • Get to the top of El Morezón and admire its beautiful surroundings.
  • Explore Cinco Lagunas and Puerto de Candeleda, among many other areas.

Description

Cinco Lagunas is a group of glacial lakes in the Central Massif of Sierra de Gredos. On this 2-day program, I invite you to explore these beautiful lakes in the mountains as well as many other natural spots ideal for hiking lovers. We’ll reach some of the peaks in the range, contemplate breathtaking panoramas and spend the night in a mountain hut.

Our adventure will start at the municipality of Navalperal de Tormes, in Ávila, near Puente de las Ranas. We’ll hike through Garganta del Pinar up to the Cinco Lagunas and reach La Portilla del Rey, at 2,362 meters above sea level. From there, we’ll take the ancient Trocha Real path to our refuge in Laguna Grande, where we’ll spend the night.

On the next day, we’ll follow the same path to the top of El Morezón (2,389 meters) and descend to the ruins of El Refugio del Rey. Then, we’ll continue the walk to Puerto de Candeleda and descend to La Plataforma, where we’ll end our trip.

Please, keep in mind that it’s mandatory to have a very good level of fitness. We’ll cover long distances on our hikes and face a considerable elevation gain each day.

So, are you ready for an exciting trekking adventure in Sierra de Gredos? Then don’t hesitate to send the request and book your place on this trip. I’m sure it will be an experience you’ll never forget!

A similar option could be this hiking program that I lead from La Plataforma in the same area. Check it out!

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
