Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

This is a hike done in snowshoes in mid-April with my dog. We started from Puerto de Navacerrada, just to the right of the old cafeteria/shop, towards the ski slopes. There is a sign pointing towards the "Telegrafo" ski slope. Follow the chair lift up to the Telegrafo hill, and from the follow the ridge all the way West up to the obvious rocky formations that make up the "Siete Picos". There are 6 rocky peaks that you can climb (some require some scrambling) and the views are magnificent from all of them.
