Looking for an easy walk in an amazing natural area? This snowshoeing program in Cantabria will be great for you.

Located in the Cantabrian Mountains, Sierra del Cordel is a beautiful mountain range that offers incredible natural areas to explore. I invite you to discover it by taking a route across its valley on this half-day snowshoeing program.

Our starting and ending point will be Abiada, a little village in Cantabria at an altitude of around 1,000 meters above sea level. From this point, we’ll start the ascent to the Brañavieja ski resort  with our snowshoes on. On the route, we’ll get to relax in a beautiful natural environment. Once we get to the resort, we’ll be at an altitude of 1,600 meters. The duration of the ascent will be of around 3 hours and we’ll spend 2 hours on the descent.

Due to the low difficulty of the route, the program is ideal for those who want to get started in snowshoeing. However, keep in mind that it is important to have a good level of fitness.

Would you like to join me on this program in Cantabria? All you have to do is send the request and book your place. I’ll be happy to be your guide.

I also lead rock climbing programs in the area, such as this introductory trip in the Cantabrian Mountains. Check it out!

About the guide

AEGM-UIMLA Guide from Spain

I did my first steps as a mountaineer as a teenager in Madrid. But the desire to enjoy all the possibilities given by the mountains convinced me to move to Benasque valley, at the heart of the Pyrenees.

Along the years I did several winter and summer activities not only in the Pyrenees, but also in Picos de Europa, Sierra Nevada, Sistema Central...

One of my passions is to travel and discover new places and cultures, so I did climbing trips to other European countries, USA, Canada, Morocco, India, Nepal, Kirguistán... This trips gave me a priceless experience that made me grow as a climber, and set the stone to my formation as professional mountain guide.

I now live in Cantabria, and usually guide both in summer and winter in the Cantabrian range.
