Outdoor Activities in Madrid

By Viator, November 2017

Relatively flat and walk-able, Madrid is the kind of city that begs you to get lost in its streets, discovering hidden plazas and Castilian-style tapas bars. Here are a few of the best activities to get you outdoors and exploring the Spanish capital.

Walking Tours
Hitting the pavement on foot is an excellent way to get the pulse of the city. Walking tours of Madrid often begin near Plaza Ramales and include visits to Plaza Mayor, Plaza de Oriente, Campo del Moro and the lush Sabatini Gardens, and the Royal Palace of Madrid, ranked among the most beautiful palace complexes in all of Europe. Depending on the option chosen, your tour might include skip-the-line access to the Royal Palace, a visit to the Prado Museum, or a traditional flamenco show.

Bike Tours
Cyclists of all abilities with a moderate level of fitness can cruise past Madrid’s legendary landmarks on a biking tour of the capital. Stop at the city’s top attractions, such as the Royal Palace, Plaza de Mayor, Retiro Park, and Puerta del Sol, to hear interesting anecdotes about Madrid’s culture and history from a local guide.

Tapas & Wine Tasting
Madrileños love to eat al fresco, so grabbing dinner can be an outdoor activity. Burn off some of those calories on a small-group tapas and wine-tasting walking tour. As you hop from tapas bar to tapas bar, sample Spanish favorites like chorizo in cider, Galician octopus, Iberian ham, local cheese, cider from Asturias, sherry from Andalucia, and Spanish wine. Tours are available for lunch and dinner.
