Activities 2019

Adventure hiking, initiation to rock climbing and caving  | 25/05/19

Family Club – Outdoor Activities – 2018 2019 - 6

Who – Adults, seniors and children from 3 years old and up (children under this age will not be able to climb / rappel) Suitable for strollers with thick wheels (no pushchairs with Maclaren type wheels). Some flights of steps where prams will have to be folded or carried)
Place Patones

For children 
Kids will have the time of their lives. There will be trees to hang from like monkeys, creeks to splash in, rock walls to climb up and descend rappelling, a dry cave that can be travelled for varying distances and with quick exits… From the most timid to the most daring they’ll all have the best time!

More details
The path that connects the town of Patones de Abajo with the beautiful town of Patones de Arriba is a gorge where we can enjoy a cave, initiation level, without any danger, suitable for all ages. Wearing helmets and frontal lights the little ones will be amazed and the parents will be entertained, all in total safety and with an easy exit at any time if someone is ‘overwhelmed’. And, for extra excitement, while some people visit the cave, others will try their skills rock climbing in nature and going down in very simple, but no less exciting, rappels. This is always with the help of specialized instructors and accessible to all ages. An ideal way to share a most adventurous family day before going for a picnic on the banks of the Lozoya River, near the Pontón de la Oliva dam, a majestic enclave that retains all the charm of the places of legend.
