Step into the wilderness and explore the rugged wilderness of La Pedriza in Sierra de Guadarrama on this trekking expedition!

On this trip we'll have the opportunity to explore the Sierra de Guadarrama, just 40 kilometers from Madrid, which divides the Castilian plateau in two as it majestically rises. This ancient, weathered mountain range features smooth, towering peaks exceeding 2,400 meters (7,874 feet) in height.

Here, we'll journey to La Pedriza, a unique granite massif on the southern slopes of the Cuerda Larga. As a true climber's paradise, it features a variety of spires, needles, cliffs, channels, and subterranean passages—a veritable mountaineering school that we know and appreciate for its uniqueness.

La Pedriza is a labyrinth of granite crags, each with its own unique name. We call this route the Pedriza Escondida (Hidden Pedriza) since it's rarely seen. Beyond the Elefantito, the path winds through a maze of rock formations, as beautiful as they are otherworldly. The Muralla China, Yelmo, and Lagunilla are just a few of the unforgettable sights you will encounter on this journey.

Enhance your Madrid getaway by exploring the captivating Sierra de Guadarrama mountains on day trips. We'll take care of transportation to and from your hotel, so you can focus on enjoying the stunning scenery and outdoor adventures.

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.
