The guide Alberto Marset was professional and knowledgest at day hike Sierra de Guadarrama National Park; the experience was great because all the hike was snowing and the trails were covered a lot of snow.



Our guide Daniel picked a challenging route for us and pointed out a lot of interesting things during the hike.
