Pico de Almanzor is a magnificent mountain that rises at 2,591 meters, towering over Sierra de Gredos. If you wish to reach its summit, don’t hesitate and join me on this half-day program.

In about 5 to 7 hours you will be standing at the top of Pico Almanzor. We’ll depart from Refugio Laguna Grande (1,950 m) at the Circo de Gredos. Thereon our fantastic mountaineering adventure will begin. As we hike to the summit, we’ll pass by many enchanting paths, discovering the local flora and fauna. Moreover, we will enjoy the most breathtaking views of the Sierra de Gredos.

Sierra de Gredos is a mountain range that forms part of the Central System range. It extends through the provinces of Madrid, Toledo, Salamanca, Caceres and Ávila. And its highest point is Pico Almanzor. Therefore it is undoubtedly one of the best places to enjoy the dazzling views of this majestic mountain range.

Pico de Almanzor is not a difficult ascent. Reaching the top of this granite colossus makes up for a beautiful hike. Nonetheless, participants need to have a good fitness level. But worry not, as this is a private trip. This means I will be with you the whole time, making sure you and your group are safe and having a great time. It also means you won’t have to share this wonderful experience with unknown participants.

Are you ready to conquer Pico Almanzor? Just send me a request and let me guide you to the top.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
