Description

Sign up for this spectacular trekking expedition and ascent to Pico Almanzor and La Galana in Spain! We will spend 3 days together among the most amazing and wild landscapes of Sierra de Gredos in the Central System.

The summit of the Almanzor raises to 2591 meters, being the highest in all Gredos, the Central System and the province of Avila.

We will do two exciting bivouacs to add up to the adventurous spirit of the trip. We will sleep in tents, not huts, in total autonomy.

The path we will follow is a circular one which passes through Gredos most characteristic cliffs.

These are the Barranco del Pinar and Barranco de Gredos. Both are rarely frequented at this time of the year.

The Barranco del Pinar will take us to the Cañada de las Cinco Lagunas. Here is where we will camp the first night.

On the second day, we will trek entirely on ice or snow, and the path will lead us to Circo de Gredos. By following this route, we will reach Pico Almanzor’s peak and also the La Galana’s one, at 2564 meters.

Reaching both summits requires a climbing effort of grade III. Of course, our guide will be there to assure your ascent is safe.

On the second night, we will camp at an idyllic place, surrounded by small lagoons and granite mountain blocks.

But the adventure is not over yet! On our way back, we still pass through the Barranco de Gredos with its pools, lake system prairies and gall-oak woods.

Although not extremely challenging, this trekking activity requires some previous mountain climbing experience. And also, to be in optimal physical shape since we will carry our rucksack with what we will need for the bivouacs,

I will make sure your trip is both safe and well-organized.

So join me in this amazing hiking trip and ascent to Pico Almanzor and La Galana. Spending time in the insides of the Central System is a unique experience! I’ll be waiting for your contact. It will be a pleasure to be your guide in this splendid adventure to Sierra de Gredos in Spain.

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!
