Highlights

Explore Spain in a very unique way. Learn about its history, culture and nature on this day hike across the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park and through the historical town of Segovia.

The first part of our trip will be trekking the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park for about 3 hours. This fantastic park is a protected area with enchanting forests, creeks, lagoons, meadows and mountains. It covers more than 30,000 hectares. And it has unique flora and fauna encompassing 11 different ecosystems, including high Alpine mediterranean vegetation, exclusive to the area.  Thus, you’ll encounter over 1,280 species, 13 of which are in danger of extinction. Plus, there are many animals that inhabit this place, that include eagles, deer, boars, wolves, mountain goats, foxes etc. So keep your eyes open for the many creatures you cold spot.

Then, once we explore this fantastic place, we’ll head towards Segovia. This ancient town is home of some of the most interesting sites in Spain, most of them in the Old Town.  Take in its medieval atmosphere, through its cobblestone streets and old alleyways. And let me show you its most interesting spots, such as the Aqueduct, the gothic Cathedral, the Jewish Quarter, and of course the mesmerizing Alcazar castle.

What’s more, you’ll get to try the exquisite local delicacies. So you can discover new flavors like the roast suckling pig, paired with a delicious Ribera red wine.

If you want to join this incredible trek through the Sierra de Guadarrama and Segovia, just send me a message. Request to book this trip and live an unforgettable experience.

What People are Saying about Ole Outdoor

 

My guide Luis was great! He was very informative and entertaining, and made sure that we walked at my pace. He was very knowledgeable about the area and told me a lot about it. I like his philosophy of \"leave the places you visit better than how you found them\" and his passion for hiking, camping, and the outdoors. We also went to El Escorial, which was impressive and fascinating. I really enjoyed my day up in the mountains with Luis and thank him for inspiring me to continue on this path of exploring our beautiful world. I would highly recommend Luis and your company for others looking for hiking or trekking opportunities.

Our guide was not Gabriel, but a subcontractor names Luis. He was great! (very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) and should have gotten 5 stars except that he arrived late to pick us up, and he said he would send pictures but didn\'t. Our scramble at La Pedriza was awesome! Explore Share should maybe get 3 1/2 stars, I found their description of this adventure not accurate. It said we would climb La Pedriza and Penalara (not possible in one day) and no experience was necessary. A beginner hiker would find this challenging, would have to turn back before the real adventure begins, and be disappointed. Scrambling requires an intermediate fitness level. And the picture shown with the advertisement isn\'t what we saw, no jagged peaks, no helmets, no ropes. All things considered it was still a great experience!
