SNOWSHOE TOURS - Guadarrama. Madrid From 30€ Code: SN001

BEGINNER LEVEL

Snowshoe Initiation. Puerto de Navacerrada area.

Without doubt, one of the most enjoyable mountaineering activities is snowshoeing. Snowshoes are devices that allow us to move over snowy terrain with relative ease. With snowshoes we can comfortably do winter routes that would otherwise be almost impossible to attempt. They are a fantastic tool and also very easy to manage. And of course they are fun, allowing us to experience the joys of snow, putting us in an immediate good mood just feeling all that snow underfoot.

These activities are highly recommended for people not experienced in snowshoeing, who either just want to spend a great day in the mountains, discovering the fabulous winter landscapes of the Guadarrama, or for those wishing to learn how to use snowshoes as a starting point for more ambitious excursions. And of course for kids, who will love them!

 

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.

Snowshoe Initiation. Puerto de Navacerrada area.

These activities are highly recommended for people not experienced in snowshoeing, who either just want to spend a great day in the mountains, discovering the fabulous winter landscapes of the Guadarrama, or for those wishing to learn how to use snowshoes as a starting point for more ambitious excursions. And of course for kids, who will love them!
Guides from our partner company will teach you all you need to know about snowshoes, and will take you to the forest to practice and marvel at the beauty of the immense Guadarrama pines. They will tell you anecdotes and explain interesting details about the medium through which you are walking. And of course they will ensure you are safe, and share their experience. We want you to spend an enjoyable and different day.
To ensure that this is so, our groups are never bigger than 12 people, because we believe that not only it makes it easier to attend to you, the group also interacts better and the excursion just works better.

We like dealing with people and getting to know you personally.
 

Program

The sites chosen will be around Puerto de Navacerrada: Siete Picos, Navalusilla, Navalazor, Telégrafo ... depending on the quantity and quality of the snow our guides will choose one of these areas with conditions suitable for an initiation into snowshoeing.
We want you to spend a fantastic day in the mountains with us, and we look forward to meeting you!

* MIDE is a classification system for hikers, taking into account the difficulty on a scale from 1 to 5 of (a) the level of challenge of the natural environment, (b) the route, (c) the level of difficulty in moving around, and (d) the amount of physical effort required. Furthermore, otherrelevant technical data is added if appropriate. While this system tries to be as objective as possible, the subjective experience of each climber may well differ. Still, as it takes many useful factors into account, we like providing this information to you as a guideline to assess your abilities.

COMMENTS OF TRAVELLERS WHO HAVE BEEN ON THIS EXPERIENCE

Amelia White

Eduardo, the guide was an amazing, knowledgeable guide. He knows so much about the history of the mountains and has great stamina and kept us going all day. It was awesome cardio fun with these raquetas under our shoes. We truly enjoyed our first ever snowshoeing experience. And your logistical arrangements were so perfect. We loved the Hotel La Torre Box Art - the food was great and the staff is super kind. They even arranged to serve us breakfast at 6:30am, before regular hours, as the trekking pickup was 7am. Thank you for your professionalism and for connecting us to a professional guide, especially as we confronted 'ventisca' (heavy snow, wind) on the first day and everything became snow white with zero visibility at 2,300m altitude. This is the time when having a knowledgeable guide is even more appreciated so a safe return is guaranteed :)

Look forward to booking more adventurous experiences via your company next time I come to Spain.
