The Catalan Pyrenees, the Sierra de Guadarrama, the Cantabrian Mountains or the viewpoints of the Costa Blanca are some of the most interesting mountain routes and ski destinations in Spain
The December long weekend is approaching and it is a great opportunity to get to know some of the best mountain routes in our country and admire the beautiful snowy landscapes of Spain. For this reason, Sixt recommends some of the best enclaves to enjoy the mountains and the snow through the best tourist routes that can be traveled by car. And with
the best car that can be brought to these enclaves.
First of all, Girona is a province that offers unforgettable landscapes, from the coast to the mountains. To enjoy the natural beauty, it is advisable to follow some of the best hiking trails. Excellent options such as Fageda d’en Jorda, in the interior of the region, to discover medieval towns such as Besalú or Santa Pau, or the Serra Cavallera route, between the Ter and Freser valleys, a space where you can discover unique Romanesque monasteries can visit. And if you also enjoy skiing, the Catalan Pyrenees offers five ski areas, all of great tourist importance in Spain and perfect for those who practice alpine skiing and cross-country skiing. The most famous stations are La Molina and Masella, followed by Vall de Núria, Vallter 2000 and Guils Fontanera. And the Audi Q2, Q3 or Q5 vehicles are perfect models to carry all the necessary luggage to ski and enjoy the route. They offer the versatility of an SUV, with space, technology and quality.
Secondly, Madrid is the capital of the country and the cultural and leisure offer is endless. It offers art, culture and gastronomy, but also nature. You can enjoy the best premieres and musicals on the Gran Vía, but also visit some of the most beautiful towns in the Sierra Madrileña. Some of the most famous rural routes are the towns of Patones de Abajo, with streets and squares built in slate, or Buitrago del Lozoya, surrounded by one of the best preserved walled enclosures in Spain. But Madrid also has an offer for snow lovers with the most central resorts in the capital, Navacerrada and Valdesquí, located in the Sierra de Guadarrama, and if we move a little further towards Segovia, we can also enjoy La Pinilla. However, the most interesting thing is that the capital has become the perfect point to go to any north or south ski area. And choose the new hybrid Jeep as your travel companion, an excellent opportunity to unite sustainability and nature. The Compass, a spacious SUV, is perfect for testing the powerful plug-in hybrid experience on tarmac.
And to enjoy the landscape and the good gastronomy you only have to go to the north of the country. If you want to enjoy Galician seafood and some of the most beautiful snowy scenery you can find, Galicia is the perfect route. A BMW X1, a premium SUV committed to great practicality and space on board, is perfect for driving through the Ribeira Sacra and reaching Manzaneda, the only ski resort in the autonomous community.
Another alternative in the north is also to drive along the Basque coast, enjoying the proximity to the sea, until you reach the Cantabrian mountain range, where you encounter the natural immensity of the Picos de Europa and enjoy the San Isidro Winter Resort , located at an altitude between 1,500 and 2,100 meters above sea level.
Finally, on the Costa Blanca in winter you can enjoy one of the routes with the most beautiful views in the country, that of the viewpoints of the cliffs of Jávea. You can discover one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, such as El Castell de Guadalest or visit Sierra Helada. The province of Alicante is bathed on this coast and winter sports are also an option, as there are less crowded and charming ski resorts. On this occasion, Sixt recommends a BMW X2, an efficient, compact and spacious plug-in hybrid SUV, with a sporty design and lines. It will be the best travel companion to discover the Sierra de Aitana in Alicante, or just an hour from Valencia, the stations of Javalambre and Valdelinares.
