What you'll do

Minimum 2 People, for 1 person booking, please ask before and I'll check if there are more people coming.

We will meet at the train station and I will take you to explore some of the most beautiful Spanish landscapes that Madrid National Park Mountains can offer during 2-3 hours approx. The hike is easy and relaxing, perfect to have a rest from the city hustle and bustle and connect with nature (it is only known by locals so it won't be crowded). We'll hike along mountains, little streams, oaks, holm oaks, pines, blackberries, wild roses, sometimes cows and horses will be free roaming among us...

We will see some of the most amazing natural treasures that "la Sierra de Madrid" hides (including local ranches), we will also see some historical remains and will stop at a lookout to contemplate the chain of Mountains and the nearest towns. During winter time, we will be able to enjoy the snow if the forecast is with us, and during summer, we will enjoy the fresher temperatures from the city centre.

⚡️⚡️NEW: Optionally (if all the group agrees and an adequate dog is available) we can have a special guest: A rescue dog!. We will open our hearts and help a dog bringing it out of the rescue shelter for a couple of hours and sharing its time with us while doing the hike.

p.s. ~ don't see a date or time that works for your group? Send me a message & I'll see if I can accommodate you
Other things to note
Bring sunscreen and adequate clothing (comfortable and good for the day's climate)

We'll be in Madrid lovely mountains, about one hour by train from Madrid centre. We'll walk for about 2 Hours through a unique forest filled with old oak trees and amazing views on the top, an area far from the normal tourist routes, and if you are lucky, you will see horses, bulls and cows from very close

We enjoyed this very gentle hike up into the mountain and forest, seeing cattle, horses, birds and other wildlife all with local knowledge from Marcos. The views are wonderful. Great history and local stories of life in the area. Very enjoyable sharing of experiences between the guests. This is an experience which has really added to our pleasure in Madrid. If you’re tempted - do it!!!

We had a nice walk with Marcos! He showed us his town and the national park. It was a great compensation for the big city life in Madrid.

Amazing day out walking in the mountains and forest with Marcos. Marcos was very friendly and helpful throughout the joruney. We learned new things from him about cow farming and new plants as well as some other stories about the place (not to spoil the story). Truly wonderful experience.

Wonderful experience from the first communication, travelling from the city centre to the actual experience itself. A great addition to what would have been a city focussed break. A little hill walking and great company. Thank you x
