Skiing in Navacerrada

The winter season is automatically associated with snow and mountain sports, but there are many other outdoor activities that you can practice during this time of year in the Region of Madrid.

We start with the most winter sports and at this time of year the Sierra de Guadarrama, for example, is dyed white to offer visitors the opportunity to practice skiing, mountaineering or snowshoeing.

If you are more of an adventurous sport, the Sierra Norte de Madrid awaits you with a multitude of activities in the snow and in this privileged environment. Canyoning, horseback riding, climbing, paragliding, mountain biking or canoeing are just some of the sports you can practice in this unique enclave of the Region of Madrid.

If your thing is skiing or snowboarding, you have to visit the Puerto de Navacerrada as it has one of the main ski resorts in the Community of Madrid. Seventeen slopes to slide down the white mantle that covers its mountains at this time of the year.

But there is more! For cross-country skiing do not hesitate to visit the old Valcotos station; and if you prefer ice sports in the city, you have to visit the slopes of Leganés, Valdemoro and Majadahonda, among others.

Although all these environments offer activities and dreamy landscapes throughout the year, in winter they acquire a special splendor that make it the ideal destination for winter sports without leaving the Region of Madrid.
