Description

Pico Almanzor (2,591 m) lies within the Sierra de Gredos in the province of Ávila. And it is the highest peak in Central Spain. If you are looking for a program to explore this dazzling mountain, search no more. Join me on this fantastic adventure to reach its summit.

This colossal peak made of granite, stands out not only for its size but its incomparable beauty. Also known as Moro Almanzor it is the perfect destination for this 2-days mountaineering trip.

The highest point in Sierra de Gredos is Pico Almanzor. Thus, we will get unrivalled views of this magnificent mountain range from its summit.

Sierra de Gredos extends through the provinces of Salamanca, Cáceres, Toledo, Ávila and Madrid. And it forms part of a larger range, the Central System. Also, it was declared a natural park  by Castile and Leon. Therefore it remains in excellent conditions.

On this marvellous adventure we’ll head to Hoyos del Espino and then Circo de Gredos, taking an easy path. So it will be a pleasant and beautiful hike. Then, we’ll reach the bivouac where we’ll spend the night.

After a good night sleep and recovering our energies, we will prepare to reach the summit of Almanzor on our second day. Upon completion and once we take in the breathtaking views of the area we’ll descend, and head back home.

Do you want to join me on this trip? Just send me a request. It would be my pleasure to guide you on this wonderful place.

I also guide this 1-day ascent to Pico Almanzor as well.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
