If your children are not always keen to go walking in the mountains, an easier and more fun alternative is to go for a donkey back ride.
The region of the Somosierra pass is magnificent and is perfect for this type of excursion.
The hotel Los Cerezos has a farm a stones throw from Somosierra pass where they have about 40 donkeys.
They organise rides of 1 or 2 hours. If the weather is chilly and you are more than 8 in your group they can organise you a barbeque lunch (very copious) by the huge chimney.
Children will be mounted on a donkey suitable for their age. As for the adults they can choose whether to follow on foot or ride a donkey.
