and many thanks for your visit to our web
you shall find a whole lot of information
in connection with trekking, backpacking
and generally speaking walking out in
the open. This place is dedicated to
people who love nature or at least like
to walk out in the wilderness, step
into places seldom visited or in other
words to walk along trails different
than those in city parks.
of the routes herein provided imply
having to camp or sleep out, that is,
all of them shall allow you to go back
home within the same day exception made of touristic visits to places rather far from Madrid which clearly include information relative to accomodation and recommended places to eat. There are
routes for all tastes: short and flat,
medium long but needing some unusual
effort and some other medium long too
but requiring medium to high efforts
thus needing some kind of better or
special physical shape. There are also
descriptions that involve a whole weekend
and approach more to touristic goings
than to pure trekking events as we say above. These
are clearly indicated.
greatest part of them all are based in Madrid
or close areas as an origin and go to places located
within the same province of Madrid or
within the neighbouring provinces of
Avila, Toledo, Cuenca, Segovia or Guadalajara.
There are some more places too located
you need to know a little more than
some spanish to understand the contents
of each individual route. Unfortunately
we do not have the time to translate
them all therefore at least a more than medium knowledge of spanish language
is a must.
May we also add that we do not organize events of any kind and for that purpose you should have to contact local clubs or some travel agencies dedicated to that particular job for weekends or longer periods. How come it is so ? The reason is that this website is made and maintained by just two people and we do not have the time or the means to engage in a task requiring time and expenses (it would more or less be a business, small, but a business after all) and more people than just the two of us.
you have reached this page we must sincerely
thank you for coming all the way down to
this point and if you do not know enough
spanish but decide to come over please
be aware that at less than 60 miles
from Madrid there are enough open places
to make you wonder how come you did
not make it here before. Please use the maps in nearly each route (the ones missing are in preparation or cannot be shown) to locate yourself with the aid of a road map. Should you have a question just drop us a message and we shall be glad to reply in english.
In any case
have fun and hasta la vista.
