Central Spain in Summer and Winter
Sierra de Gredos is an easily accessible regional park about 2 hours to the East of Madrid and not far from the walled city of Avila. The region boasts fine alpine lakes and rugged peaks. Great hiking, several climbing areas with routes of all grades, ice climbing and mountain skiing are all available in season. A variety of refuges from simple shelters to huts with meals is available. Good guides are available for training and leading trips year round.
The presentation will describe a series of trips in both summer and winter to visit two of the principal valleys, El Circo de Gredos and La Garganta de Bohoyo, and peaks such as Almanzor (2,592 m) and La Galana in El Circo.
