Food Included

Navafría is a place of wild and spectacular natural beauty. It is the least visited mountain pass in Madrid. There is not even parking space apart from a couple cars and the quota is so limited that we will practically be alone in the forest. We will have a private bus for us from the restaurant to the slopes and back. Cross-country skiing, flat and relaxed, is an activity that we do not usually see in Spain so for most, it will be a discovery. It’s fun, easy and suitable for all ages. But since the little ones under 6 years of age still don’t have the physical shape, coordination or patience, we have prepared for them a mixed activity of cross-country skiing and snowshoes, through games, so that they immerse without any effort in these winter sports. We will walk among the fir trees quietly, guided by instructors. About halfway we will stop for a mid-morning snack and then return to the cabin to leave the gear and go down to the restaurant, where we will eat in a rustic mountain hut, overlooking the river and just 20 minutes on foot from the Los Chorros waterfall, more than 20m high, in the middle of one of the largest extensions of wild pine in Europe. A beautiful winter postcard. Children can play outdoors safely in this special area away from the typical hustle and bustle of the weekenders, deep inside this secluded area of the National Park.

• Transportation by private bus from restaurant to activities area (15 min)

Food Everyones bring their own picnic. Some tables available at the activity area
This is an activity that is simply amazing, fun and so special, also perfect and for the whole family, from 0 to 99 (like board games). It’s also set in one of the most beautiful areas of the National Park, La Barranca. We will make two parallel groups, one for adults and over 5 years old, and one for other adults and under 5. Both groups will share in the same area so anyone can move from one group to another as they wish throughout the day.

Activity 1 consists of orientation, survival and first aid in the wild through all kinds of group games that promise both learning and laughter, including: interpretation of maps and following of a route, use of the compass, orientation by signs in the natural environment, orientation by sun and shadow, search, purification and carrying water, making fire, finding natural shelters and construction, first aid, care and evacuation of wounded, prevention of accidents and problems before we set off, the hikers’ first aid kit, etc . They will tell us how to discern what we can eat and what not, what to do if we get trapped by snow, night, fog or fire, what to include in your hiking backpack, how to deal with an insect bite, a sprain, hypothermia or a heat stroke, etc.

Activity 2 is for the little ones and parents who wish (but adults can swap with others during the day). We have prepared a super original day to learn and have fun in: games to discover nature, construction of shelters with natural things we previously collect, stone painting workshop, manufacturing tools using elements of nature, search for plants and activities with them, finding animal trails, etc. They could be divided into two levels, by age, if the group is very large.

It includes
• Basic games and techniques: orientation, survival and first aid for adults and children from 5 years

We’ll start the day in a beautiful organic farm set at the end of the tiny Lozoya town, a valley surrounded by the Guadarrama Sierra peaks, and washed by the Pinilla reservoir. A mid-morning snack will be waiting for you to gather strength until lunchtime. After the Adolfo, its owner, tells us about his plantation, which is specialized in all species of organic berries, we will go harvest them.

Raspberries of various species, currants of all colours, blackberries, blueberries… A real pleasure for the palate and a super fun activity for kids, with beautiful views of the reservoir. The first two trays per person are included in the price but you can take as many as you wish and pay the excess on departure!

After the harvest, we will walk 15 minutes before topping to enjoy the picnic that everyone has brought from home. There are some tables but we can bring your mats to put on the ground under the shade of the trees.
