Seasonal Splendor in the Valleys of Gredos

Ride Overview

The Sierra de Gredos passes through one of the most distinctive regions of the Iberian Peninsula. River valleys, surrounded by rugged mountains, are dotted with small villages. Here and there a towering castle perches in austere grandeur on a hill and an ancient monastery lies in a valley. The final day of this ride is spent exploring the medieval town of Avila.

This is a very representative part of the Sierra.  Riders will be inspired by this National Park’s diverse display of flora and fauna through the Tormes, Corneja and Alberche river valleys.  Ride up slopes of oak, pine and chestnut trees, discover wildlife from rocky overlooks, and gallop across pastures and open fields.  The small villages along the trail display their architecture, their traditions, and the way of life of their people.

These ride dates allow you to admire Gredos at its best depending on the time of year: Easter, spring, summer and the fall mushroom ride.
