Description

DescriptionCross-Country Skiing in Madrid.

Discover & Enjoy Cross-Country Skiing in Madrid. Dreampeaks organizes Private Cross-Country Skiing Tours in the Guadarrama National Park during the winter season. Guide, all gear and Transport Included.

Cross-country skiing is a form of skiing where skiers rely on their own locomotion to move across snow-covered terrain, rather than using ski lifts or other forms of assistance. Cross-country skiing is widely practiced as a sport and recreational activity; however, some still use it as a means of transportation.

Cross-country skiing provides a great workout for the cardiovascular system, while also training all the major parts of the body. It is probably among the healthiest of winter sports!

Cross-country skiing is a fantastic way to spend a winter’s day. We would like to guide you on a cross-country skiing adventure in the Navafría Cross-Country Ski resort in Guadarrama National Park close to Madrid city.

Located between Madrid and Segovia, at 1.860 meters above sea level, The Cross-Country Ski Center of Navafría has 33 kilometers of tracks, which makes it one of the largest in Spain. The six proposed routes run along forest tracks, inside the thick pine forests and alpine prairies of the Carpetanos Mountains. The routes are graded in three levels of difficulty: green, blue and red. We have no doubt you will have an unbelievable experience.

This trip is open to people of all skill levels and ages. For beginners, this trip is a great way to learn how to properly and safely cross-country ski. You will learn the basics including equipment usage, how to get up from a fall, uphill techniques, the diagonal stride, double poling and much more. And for more advanced skiers, we will focus more on helping you improve upon your existing skills, while perhaps teaching you some new ones as well.

What do I need to bring?Practical Information

Temperatures can easily be -5°C, but it’s a dry cold. Temperatures rise dramatically when the sun comes out, and snowshoeing is quiet strenuous, so you need lightweight layers that you can add or take-off quickly. Cotton t-shirts will stay wet and cold on your body; thermal clothing is best (capilene, merino wool, Odlo, etc.).
As important as it is not to underdress for the weather, it’s also important not to overdress. Learn to listen to your body and anticipate your needs. Shed a layer BEFORE you start to overheat, and add a layer BEFORE you start to chill. And, always carry an extra layer of dry clothes and socks in your pack.

-Backpack.
-Mountain/Hiking boots or aprés ski boots.
-Mountain wear/Sport wear (according to the winter season).
-Fleece.
