Start the day with a 30min transfer to Fuente Dé located high in the mountains at 1100m. Take the famous cable car right up to a height of 1835m and the edge of the Central Massif of the Picos de Europa mountain range. The limestone landscape up here is almost lunar-like and home to some amazing wildlife such as chamois, vultures and alpine birds like the Snowfinch and Rock Thrush.Walk through pastures filled with mountain chalets, cross a glacier valley and finally the wonderfully scenic Aliva Pass to arrive in Sotres, the highest village in the Asturian side of the Picos.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

 

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
