Self-guided, easy-moderate level walking tour in Segovia

  • Delightful walks along beautiful countryside in Guadarrama National Park.
  • Stunning traditional villages.
  • Area of special protection for wildlife.
  • One night is medieval town of Segovia.
  • Possible extension your stay to visit Segovia, World Heritage Site.

This holiday takes place in the province of Segovia, one of the 9 provinces that make up the autonomous region of Castile and Léon. Just half an hour north of Madrid by car, the area is heavily influenced by the proximity of the capital; Madrileños come here to relax, eat out and unsurprisingly, purchase second homes in some of the prettiest villages.

The route is very varied; crossing open expanses of granite strewn tablelands, grass covered steppes, stands of juniper and oak forest, through delightful wooded river valleys and between honey coloured limestone outcrops. The whole journey is framed by the soft peaks of the Guadarrama mountain range - often snow-capped until mid-May.
