Segovia - National Parks & Segovia City - Hotel to Hotel Trek Self Guided walking holiday - Click here to find out more about Self Guided walking holidays 

The routes on this trek are fairly gentle as you can take your time strolling along country lanes of exceptional beauty and staying in charming rural accommodations near to the mountains of Guadarrama, an area which implements special protection for local wildlife. The most spectacular days are when you visit the breath-taking Duratón Canyon Nature Reserve where you walk alongside the river and on the clifftops which form this remarkable Canyon. You end your trek in the historical town of Sepulveda, the following day you are transferred back to Segovia for your last night to further explore the exquisite World Heritage Sites this notable city has to offer.

The majority of our walks are easy to navigate on clear paths, our walk notes and maps will also help to guide you through the stunning landscapes.

Day 3: Another circular walk today taking you to the scenic El Chorro Waterfalls. You will walk across town and up through oak woods to the base of the falls, continue by climbing above the falls and returning along a lovely woodland path the Palace Walls. As todays walk is quite short, you should have enough time to explore the Royal Palace and Gardens in El Granja should you wish. Overnight La Granja de San Ildefonso.

Ascent: 400m. Descent: 400m. Distance: 6.5 miles. Time:  3 hours.

Day 4: For the most part of today you follow an ancient drovers trail (Cañada Real) running along the foot of the Guadarrama Mountains. It’s as close to cowboy country as you will find in Europe because in the Middle Ages, Segovia was central to the Spanish wool and cloth industry. Overnight Gallegos.

Ascent: 280m. Descent: 240m. Distance: 9.5 miles. Time: 4 hours.

Day 5: Your walk today is in two parts. First you walk from Castilnovo and across wide grassy plains, passing through tiny villages and into Sepulveda in time for lunch. In the afternoon, you walk along the Sepulveda Canyon created by the beautiful River Caslilla. Overnight Sepulveda.

Ascent: 300m. Descent: 280m. Distance: 10 miles. Time: 4.5 hours.

Day 6: Todays walk is along the spectacular Duratón Canyon to the accompaniment of vultures. You will be taking the same route back, so the length of the walk can be determined on the day should you wish. Overnight Sepulveda.

Distance: 10 miles. Time: 5 hours (these are the figures for the entire walk there and back).

Day 7: You have a choice today - either spend some time exploring the historic village of Sepulveda and transfer to Segovia in the afternoon or alternatively transfer to Segovia in the morning where you can enjoy a ‘city tour’. There is a lot to do and see in Segovia and it is undoubtedly a beautiful city. We have prepared an exciting itinerary for a suggested ‘self-guided’ walking route which takes in many of the most popular visitor destinations, as well as some that are somewhat lesser known.
