6 Reasons to not think twice about enjoying Madrid's natural side
# 1 Free your lungs
You have to recognize it; Madrid as a city does not lead the list of pollution-free cities. The gases produced by the thousands of cars that day after day pass through their roads are a fact that ends up affecting health.
Give a breath to your lungs with a little clean air while doing some sport in nature. Not only will it be good for your body, but also for your mind.
# 2 Accessibility for all
Everyone deserves to enjoy life and nature without impediments of any kind, that's why Madrid is one of the destinations that has put the batteries in terms of accessibility and there are many activities that are adapted for everyone to do them.
Living in connection with nature should not know barriers.
# 3 Value the nature of Madrid
How many have walked along Gran Vía or taken the grapes at Puerta del Sol? Surely many. But how many really know the Sierra Oeste or Sierra de la Cabrera? Surely many less.
Enjoy the cultural heritage is very important, but we must not forget the natural. Both are equal fragile, and if both are given the same importance and knowledge may continue with us for a long time.
# 4 The heat can be fought in Madrid
How far is the beach of Madrid. Being in the center of the country you might think that stepping on water other than your bathtub or pool is out of the question, but let's not forget the reservoirs and the rivers!
In the El Atazar, San Juan, Pedrezuela, Valmayor and Picadas reservoirs you can practice sailing and other water sports such as windsurfing or kayaking.
# 5 The winter star: Sierra de Guadarrama
The highest area of the Sierra de Guadarrama is one of the favorite places for skiers and winter sportsmen. Its Navacerrada and Valdesquí ski resorts are perfect for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and even climbing on ice or rock walls.
# 6 The best way to know a place?
Whatever destination you visit, the best way to get to know it is to discover the nature of it through active or adventure tourism. Each activity you do will give you a different perspective of what you can get to see of the place and that not many see.
Do you dare to leave the city?
