Bring your friends and family for an easy and beautiful hike from Fonda Real to Valle de la Barranca in Spain. Located in the Guadarrama mountain range, this hiking route is ideal for a short getaway. Join me and let’s spend an exciting day in an unforgettable setting!

We’ll meet in Fonda Real and hike towards the Chiquillo Dam. Then, we’ll follow the route to the Valle de la Barranca and pass through the Real Sanatorio del Guadarrama and the PR – 17. Along the way, I will teach you about the history, culture and wonders of the places we visit.

After this first part of the hike, we’ll go into an area of beautiful pine trees and come across two dams: Pueblo de Navacerrada and Ejército del Aire. Then, we’ll begin the slow and slightly more challenging ascent through the Barranca valley by the Navacerrada stream until we reach the Mingo fountain. We’ll then descend through the Ortiz route until we reach Ventorrillo and continue to our starting point.

In total, we’ll hike 16 kilometers in a stunning route filled with different landscapes. Because it is easy enough for everyone, there are no specific requirements to join. However, a good fitness level is recommended for this trip.

So book your place now! If you love the outdoors, I can guarantee you’ll love the Guadarrama mountain range!

And, if you are looking for more adventures in Spain, you can join me for a day trek in La Pedriza or a seven-day hike in Sierra de Guadarrama.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

My name is Vicente Reyes and I am an accompanying mountain guide or also called a Sports Technician in high Mountain qualified by the CFEM de las Rozas (Madrid) in 2016 and also holds the first level of Technician / guide titled in 2015 by EMAM (Madrid High Mountain School) and also associated with the AEGM (Spanish Association of Mountain Guides) with membership number 1073.

As you can see in each of our excursions, I am a big fan of the mountains, I love to breathe fresh air, enjoy nature in all its splendor, and escape from the stress of big cities, and consequently this love for nature and the mountain took me to get my degree as a mountain guide that I currently own.
I love being able to teach people what nature offers us, what we sometimes have so close to our homes, places so incredible that we do not imagine that they exist within a few kilometers, and also teach to respect nature and take care of it as she does do with all of us.

Among my other hobbies you can also check in our trips that I am a great passionate about meteorology and climatology, a hobby that as a mountaineer always comes in handy to foresee possible changes of time in advance.
Without more here I leave this little presentation about me and I hope we will see each other soon learning and sharing a nice time on the mountain. You will not regret it !!

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.
