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!
