Enjoy a wonderful family day out in a huge, impressive nature area. Accompany your children as they gaze on in amazement at exotic animals in semi-liberty from all over the world. You don't have to go on safari to see Bengal tigers, desert antelopes and African elephants. Come and see them in the extraordinary surroundings of the Cabárceno Nature Park.
Cabárceno covers an area of more than 750 hectares and is the largest park of its kind in Europe. It is a large open area where you can marvel at the way animals from all over the world live happily in semi-liberty. This amazing place is located in the Cantabrian Mountains, just 20 kilometres from Santander, in truly exceptional surroundings: the Peña Cabarga Nature Reserve.
At Cabárceno children can enjoy a wonderful walk amidst friendly ostriches, majestic lions, elegant jaguars and impressive rhinos. There are more than 118 species living in the park, and you will often come across delightful animal cubs, given that this is one of the few places where these animals reproduce naturally.
The park is ideal for the whole family to enjoy a visit in complete comfort. Its network of asphalted paths means that you can gradually explore the park in your car. This wonderful place can also be discovered on foot or by bicycle, on special alternative trails. On your way, be sure to have a look at the park's unique landscape made up of strange, unusual, limestone rock formations produced by erosion.
At Cabárceno, everything is designed so that young children have a wonderful experience of nature: displays of birds of prey in flight, or sea lions' acrobatics will leave them speechless; they can catch trout in Acebo Lake - a real achievement; and in the environment workshop they will learn the secrets of the park's flora and fauna. There are other complementary services such as a café, play park, picnic area, shops and restaurants that will ensure you have a perfect, happy family day out.
Come and live an extraordinary and completely original experience. The savage beauty of wild animals in fascinating surroundings will leave you amazed. Cabárceno Park awaits you - come and have a fun day out with your family, in complete harmony with nature. More information: Cantabria Tourism
