Sustainable and active tourism in Segovia
You can also enjoy hiking in the Natural Park of Hoces del Duratón. The Duraton River, on its way through the northeast of Segovia, fits into a deep gorge in which numerous pairs of griffon vultures live. Both they and the golden eagles, peregrine falcons and Egyptian vultures will be your companions if you practice canoeing in this river. Of course, you can enjoy all these species with a day of birding in this space.
Kayaking can also be done in the Pontón Reservoir (at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama) or in the Sickles of the Riaza River, another important Natural Park of the province. Although of reliefs less steep than the Hoces del Duratón, this park has great geological richness. The different paths will allow you to enjoy hiking and geotourism in a unique way.
On the other hand, in winter, lovers of nature activities in Segovia, go to the ski resorts of Puerto de Navacerrada and La Pinilla. The first one is only 30 kilometers from the capital. While the second one is closer to Riaza. Both offer good opportunities to enjoy snow sports.
The offer of active tourism activities is completed with balloon rides. A booming activity that allows you to enjoy incredible views of the plains and the Sierra de Guadarrama, and that even those who are not accustomed to aerial activities can enjoy.
