Description

The habitat of the brown bear and capercaillie

Apart from the great landscape beauty of the Reserve, its most important feature is its unique species of fauna, that are almost mythical, such as the brown bear, capercaillie and wolf.

The Reserve is formed by the high basins of the river Ibias and Narea, and closed to the south by sierra de Degaña, and the north by that of Caniellas. Inside you can find the Reserves of Muniellos and Cueto de Arbás, habitats where different populations of brown bear and capercaillies are protected. Other outstanding species are the peregrine falcon, partridge, Pyrenean muskrat, grey dormouse; as well as the roe deer, wild boar, wild cat and martens.
