Join an expert mountain guide on a fun-filled half day of via ferrata near Madrid open to all levels.
Enjoy a via ferrata experience close to Madrid
Learn all you need to know about via ferrata from an expert
Take on a new physical challenge in beautiful scenery
If you have some free time when you’re next in Madrid, you do not want to miss my half-day trip to the Priego via ferrata in Cuenca. This spot is close enough to Madrid that it’s easy to get there and far enough away that we’ll feel like we’re escaping the city.
A via ferrata is a system of steel cords, metal steps and bridges that are attached to a rock face. We’ll have a clip and harness that allow us to attach ourselves to the rock and move along it, without the risk of falling.
Before we start, I’ll give you all the information and tips that you need to successfully tackle this via ferrata. And to have lots of fun.
The first section of the via ferrata is less physically demanding but the second section is more challenging. We’ll climb an iron ladder that is attached to the rock, then we’ll traverse limestone rock on a narrow trail. To finish we’ll cross a hanging bridge. The whole time we’ll be able to take in the beautiful scenery.
So what are you waiting for? Request to book now and I’ll be waiting for you to come along on this mini adventure!
And, if this via ferrata experience leaves you wanting more, you should check out my mountain climbing day trip in La Pedraza, near Madrid.

Great tour, nice nice guide always trying to teach things. Helpful and great experience The views were wonderful. Weather fine, the stars at night amazing. I liked very much
Very enjoyable trip and hassle-free organisation. Everyone involved went out their way to make sure I had a fantastic time, and personalised the trip according to my interests and needs.
My guide Luis was great! He was very informative and entertaining, and made sure that we walked at my pace. He was very knowledgeable about the area and told me a lot about it. I like his philosophy of \"leave the places you visit better than how you found them\" and his passion for hiking, camping, and the outdoors. We also went to El Escorial, which was impressive and fascinating. I really enjoyed my day up in the mountains with Luis and thank him for inspiring me to continue on this path of exploring our beautiful world. I would highly recommend Luis and your company for others looking for hiking or trekking opportunities.
Our guide was not Gabriel, but a subcontractor names Luis. He was great! (very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) and should have gotten 5 stars except that he arrived late to pick us up, and he said he would send pictures but didn\'t. Our scramble at La Pedriza was awesome! Explore Share should maybe get 3 1/2 stars, I found their description of this adventure not accurate. It said we would climb La Pedriza and Penalara (not possible in one day) and no experience was necessary. A beginner hiker would find this challenging, would have to turn back before the real adventure begins, and be disappointed. Scrambling requires an intermediate fitness level. And the picture shown with the advertisement isn\'t what we saw, no jagged peaks, no helmets, no ropes. All things considered it was still a great experience!

Thank you Luis for a great trip to La Pedriza! We learnt a lot and thank you for bringing us hiking around the area even after we were done with the climbing :)
