If you want to capture the true essence of the Montanhas Mágicas, the best to do is walking.

Few things will give you more pleasure than walking on the rails that cross the valleys and mountains of this territory! Contemplate the spectacular scenery, listen to the sounds of nature and watch its vibrant colors. Approach people, traditions and local culture. Go through ancient paths of farmers, shepherds, miners and postmen and enjoy the beauty of our villages. Cool your feet in a stream of clear water and watch a magnificent sunset from the top of these mountains!

To enjoy all this we offer you more than 600km of pedestrain itineraries, ecotrails, walkways and Santiago Ways. Discover them and enjoy the pleasure of walking outdoor!
