Turn your city break into a microadventure

Madrid: Hike the Cuenca Alta del Manzanares Mountains

Begin your hike from the town of Manzanares el Real, beneath the quintessential Spanish castle. Stand on the pretty lakeshore, look past the castle, and you'll see the peaks rising up behind the town.The climb up into the Cuenca Alta del Manzanares mountains gives spectacular views and a real escape from the city vibe for a discreet night’s bivvy amongst the boulder fields and unusual granite outcrops. If you search well, or ask locals, you may even find the gorgeous swim hole of Baños de Venus de La Pedriza... 

There are lots of short distance suggested hikes (called PR) that run through the park. One popular day hike is the trek to the Yelmo, one of the highest peaks in the area. The route from the village is well-marked by red and white stripes painted onto rocks. It's a long day walk so be sure to pack enough food and water. 

Level of Difficulty: Medium (if you're going to bivvy, Easy if you're just going for a day hike).  Bus 724 from Madrid’s Plaza de Castilla interchange departs every half an hour.

What to pack: Warm clothes (check the weather forecast!), woolly hat, headtorch, raingear, sleeping bag, mat and bivvy bag.

Best time to go: late spring or early summer before the fierce Madrid summer heat descends.

Europe's third largest city may not have a beach like Barcelona, but if you come on a city break to Madrid sunbathing is the last thing that'll be on your mind.  Spain's capital is one bursting with culture and activities for tourists at every turn, with museums, art galleries and night after night of sexy flamenco.

Madrid's tourism board will proudly inform you that the city has more bars per square metre than anywhere else in Europe.  When it comes to appearances Madrid is hard to beat too, having retained much of its historic and regal flair seen in its wide boulevards, elegant fountains and royal parks. And for those of you who are bad with your bearings, don't worry, despite the size of this metropolis, Madrid's centre is surprisingly small. It has one of Europe's best metros too.
