  • It is a good place to walk and if you want even to a swim in the SUMMER, WATER is ice-cold eye. But you NEVER get to go on a WEEKEND during the SUMMER, there are more people than in the WAR

  • Beautiful location with spectacular views! For these times of winter frozen Peñalara great Lake looks beautiful, and there is a trail of wood which you can climb the mountain, or there are also other more advanced routes for those walking like that.

  • This incomparable Peñalara natural park is located near the capital. You must upload drive to the port of Cotos or use the mountain railway from renfe to part of the Cercedilla's train station. There we can start the ascent to the Laguna grande de Peñalara by a road with enough slope and difficult if you are with ice as happened to us, because it is a tad dangerous, now, the views are breathtaking if you visit it in winter and snow. A walk of essential if you visit our sierra.

  • It's a beautiful place for an easy hike. Once you reach the summit of Peñalara keep going as there is an interesting pass with large boulders that makes it fun for newbies. It's a protected area so don't strand away from the path and please don't litter. There are several fountains which come from the river going down the mountain, you can use them for drinking but still try to bring plenty of water. Additionally it's better to rent a car as the bus service is highly unreliable, we were stranded for 5 hours and it's not the first time.
  • Beautiful park near Madrid. With a large fauna diversity.
  • A beautiful place to go hiking! Beware, in the winter months the place is covered in snow!
  • Just half an hour away from Madrid, you can be above 2k :)
