Discovering the enchanting winter landscapes around Madrid has been made more accessible and budget-friendly with the launch of Renfe’s new winter campaign on the ‘Carnaías’ system.
Madrid, a captivating city throughout the year, transforms into a magical destination during winter, especially with its picturesque surrounding mountains. Renfe, the Spanish rail operator, has introduced this campaign to encourage travelers to explore the natural beauty of the Iberian Peninsula, specifically the stunning Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range.
Renfe has invested in significant enhancements to the ‘Carnaías’ system, particularly the zona verde (‘green zone’) C9 line and the individual stations within the region. The revitalization of this rail service aims to entice visitors to immerse themselves in the scenic wonders of the mountains, providing a convenient and affordable means of transportation.
The green zone C9 route takes passengers on a captivating journey through the Sierra de Guadarrama, allowing them to experience the southern side of the Seven Peaks, the Valsaín Valley, Navalmedio, Fuenfría, and the Mirador de la Reina. The exploration of this breathtaking landscape begins from stations situated in Cercedilla, Puerto de Navacerrada, and Cotos.
Running from December 2 to March 31, 2024, the promotional offer is available on weekdays, offering a compelling package of two adult tickets at the affordable price of €34.80 (£29.80, $37.50). What makes this deal even more appealing is that it includes a complimentary ticket for a child up to the age of 11, making it an ideal choice for families seeking a memorable winter adventure.
To take advantage of this promotion, travelers need to purchase tickets in person at the stations, with the added convenience of booking up to six days in advance. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to discover the winter charm of Madrid’s surrounding mountains with a travel option that is both economical and family-friendly.
