Picos de Europa

Walking in the Picos de Europa

The Picos de Europa is one of the most impressive mountain ranges in Spain and a superb environment for walking. This self guided holiday will take you through jagged limestone mountains providing magnificent scenery and harbouring a rich variety of flora, fauna and wildlife. 

 

Initially based in the quiet village of Arenas de Cabrales, your first day's walk is a colourful, rewarding ascent to Nava above the Cares River. Further on the village of Tielve awaits with neighbouring Valfríu tempting you with their famous ‘Queso de Cabrales’ - local blue cheese. Through landscapes of heather, beech woods and flowing streams you arrive in Sotres, the highest of all the villages and your base for four nights, before finishing your trip in Arena de Cabrales.
