  • Enjoy the striking beauty of Sierra de Guadarrama National Park in the winter
  • An experienced guide guarantees safety and fun


Join me on this snowshoeing tour to explore the beautiful Sierra de Guadarrama National Park while trekking on recently fallen snow.

The park, while stunning year-round, becomes a winter wonderland from December to April. Snowshoes allow us to walk on snow comfortably by distributing our weight over a larger area. Snowshoes have always been essential for people whose livelihoods require getting around in deep snow, but these days snowshoeing is also a popular recreational activity. No previous experience is required and it’s a blast for kids (ages 6+) and adults alike.

As we trek through the snow we’ll admire the silent forests, frozen rivers and high mountain peaks. It’s an enchanting experience and a great way to connect to nature in the winter.

Book now for a snowshoeing adventure in Sierra de Guadarrama National Park that will fill you with wonder.

This activity depends on snow and weather conditions in Madrid mountain area. For large groups, please inquire directly with me. No previous experience required. Standard fitness level. Custom snowshoe hikes in Madrid according to your fitness level, age, experience and preferences.

Temperatures can easily be -5°C, but it’s a dry cold. Temperatures rise dramatically when the sun comes out, and snowshoeing is quiet strenuous, so you need lightweight layers that you can add or take-off quickly. Cotton t-shirts will stay wet and cold on your body; thermal clothing is best (capilene, merino wool, Odlo, etc.). As important as it is not to underdress for the weather, it’s also important not to overdress. Learn to listen to your body and anticipate your needs. Shed a layer BEFORE you start to overheat, and add a layer BEFORE you start to chill. And, always carry an extra layer of dry clothes and socks in your pack.

What to bring: -Backpack. -Mountain/Hiking boots or aprés ski boots. -Mountain wear/Sport wear (according to the winter season). -Fleece. -Waterproof jacket (windproof/waterproof Gore Tex type). -Warn hat and warm gloves. Headband/buff. -Sun screen and lip balm. -Sun hat. -Sport Sunglasses or ski goggles. -Mobile phone and camera, Passport/Identification document and personal belongings and medication in a plastic bag. -1,5 L of water and snacks (sandwich, fruit, nuts, energy bars, etc…) per person. Thermo flask (hot tea/coffee).

What people are saying about Dreampeaks



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.



We took the hike to the national park with Danielle the guide. It was an extraordinary trip. We really enjoyed the view. We climbed on the rocks and through the forest. So beautiful scenery and rivers, waterfalls and everything was fantastic! I truly recommend Doing this for those who love nature



Absolutely amazing experience horseback riding on a ranch about 1 hour from Madrid. The horses were incredibly well trained and the staff were able to provide very good technique pointers for both beginner and intermediate riders in multiple languages including English and Spanish. The ride was well catered to the abilities of the group. Gabriel was absolutely amazing in organizing the trip, picking us up and dropping us off in Madrid and catering to some last minute changes we had. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy beautiful nature with good people and horses! I would also 100% recommend DreamPeak Tours and Gabriel for any outdoor activities!



Thank you so much for arranging this adventure perfectly. The guide Dani was very kind, polite, communicative and punctual. The track was exactly what I wanted. So, I definitely recommend your service and this via ferrata to everyone. Thank you very much again! :)



Perfect hiking day!
