Muntania suggests you a 5 days circular tour in Picos de Europa crossing the Central Massif, also called Urrieles.
We will start the trip in Asturias in Puente Poncebos, between the central and western Massif crossing the Cares Valley. We will ascent Urrieles through Cordiñales enjoying beautiful places like Jermoso Col, Puertos de Avila and Vega de Urriello, where the famous Naranjo de Bulnes is located. We will finish the tour in the picturesque village of Bulnes.
Without a doubt this is a perfect journey to enjoy Picos de Europa, its steep peaks, its fancy geomorphology and contrasts.
A very complete tour that will not leave anyone indifferent.
It is important to carry little weight in the backpack to walk comfortably, so it is recommended to take only the essential material and clothing. Each day you may wash some laundry by hand and you do not have to carry food. We will inform you so you backpack weighs no more than 6-8 kilos.
Aside from the regular travel trip dates, we are flexible to reconsider new dates if those are more convenient to the client’s leisure plans. Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any different dates in mind.
Time and meeting point
One week prior to the trip departure date, an email will be sent to each participant to give away the meeting point and time along with the guide contact information. At this point any information considered essential to the trip organization will be shared.
It is very important to carry the lightest backpack possible (6 to 10 kg) to walk at ease; therefore, it is highly advised to take exclusively the essential material and clothing. Huts will offer handwash facilities and there will be no need to carry food.
This activity includes a basic insurance policy; however, we highly recommend to add, for wider coverage, an extra specific travel policy. This extra policy can be contracted exclusively for the activity dates or annually (flexible starting coverage date), covering not just Muntania Outdoors trips but any other sport activity you may carry out throughout the year.
Extra insurance coverage with cancellation option, will allow you or a family member, in case of incident, to get back the total paid amount (or a percentage if you are already travelling) either for plane tickets or any trip service you might have hired. Moreover, through this coverage home return expenses will be taken care of.
Intermundial insurance company is our supplier for extra coverage insurances; thanks to the signed agreement between parties, Muntania gets to offer lower prices than handling directly with them. The travel insurance with cancellation option offered by Muntania will covered up to 900€ for national trips and 2000€ for abroad travel. In case your total trip cost is higher than the given coverage limit, an extension is always possible (please consult).
