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.

 

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!

About the Guide

 
 

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.
