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.

We had a wonderful Sunday up in Puerto de Nevacerrada, after a fresh fall of lots of snow. It was wonderful walking around the mountain in the fresh snow. The guide Nico was very good and helpful, and a wonderful experience, we both loved it.

We have loved the experience. We have done today a snowshoeing route through the snow and the professional treatment has been impeccable. At all times they have tried to help us and teach us curious things about the environment. Thank you!

Awesome snow rackets and Igloo experience – 1 hour from Madrid
We had an amazing snow rackets + igloo experience with Gabi and Jorge in Puerto de Nevacerrada. During 4 hours we could walk pretty much alone at 1900 – 2000 m altitude, and had the opportunity to learn about the nature, wildlife, mountain, igloo construction. Very professionnal and friendly guides – Recommend 100%.

A great day in the mountains.
Booked a hike to Peñalara Peak in January. A recent snow transitioned it to a snowshoes. It was an incredible day. Gabriel picked me up right on time from my hotel and we drove to the mountain. There I met my guide (Dario). He was was super — professional, friendly, knowledgeable and the experience was unforgettable (covering approximately 10k in fresh snow). I have already recommended Dreampeaks to friends from Madrid.
