Home > Nature Spairience! en España > San Rafael > SNOWSHOE TOURS - ADVANCED LEVEL

Snowshoe Walks and Ascents – Medium / Advanced Level

This season, we suggest going on some slightly more ambitious snowshoe excursions. Snowshoeing permits us to traverse areas in the mountains that would otherwise be very difficult and tiring. And what is more, it’s addictive – so we’d like to propose a programme of ascents and walks tailormade for those who feel they have outgrown just walking around in the woods.


Spairience will find and book accommodation for you. However, if you prefer taking care of this yourself you have the option of doing so directly from here, and simply booking the activities and other services with us.  

Enter Booking.com to find your ideal accommodation in the San Rafael area!

We believe that these routes are not only perfect for snowshoeing, but also of great interest for mountaineers: Maliciosa, Montón de Trigo, Asómate de Hoyos, the Fuenfría valley, the Cabezas de Hierro forest, trips to the Gredos, to Picos de Europa … the surroundings are certain to appeal to you.

We’ll repeat our introductory programmes, and we’ll continue with small groups of no more than 12 persons (except for trips, where we will be a maximum of 15).

Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for a good snow season - see you soon!

In each excursion’s respective section, you will find its technical specifications, general information and MIDE classification (a system for classifying the level of difficulty and hazard).
