Exploring Spain presents a trip to Picos de Europa to discover some of the most emblematic places of this massif in the Cantabrian Mountain Range.
Picos de Europa are a big secret for mountaineers from outside Spain. And we want it to keep it that way… Because as travellers, we have a big affection towards Asturias, and as mountaineers towards Picos de Europa.
It was in 1018 when Picos de Europa was first declared National Park, the first of Spain and one of the first natural protected areas in the world. Since then, the National Park has grown to cover 67.000 hectares distributed between Asturias, Cantabria and León.
Sleeping in a comfortable country house in Valle de Cabrales, everyday we will do a walk visiting places as famous as the Cares route, Fuente Dé and Horcajos Rojos, La Vega de Sotres and the Picu or the Lakes of Covadonga.
These walks go along valleys, cols, gorges and crags. Villages and mountain huts, and the Cantabrian Sea at sight from the summits… A trip that we assure you that entails a great experience in one of the most beautiful terrains from the Spanish mountains.
As the icing on the cake, we will taste the local gastronomy in some of the numerous traditional restaurants of the area.
On your return, we only ask you to keep us the secret…
