Trekking in Picos de Europa: The Circular Ring

Picos de Europa are a big secret for mountaineers from outside Spain. And we want it to keep it that way… Because as travellers, we have a big affection towards Asturias, and as mountaineers towards Picos de Europa.This trek will take you to one of the most alpine and wild calcarean landscapes of the Cantabrian Mountains. Between sharp calcarean landforms, green meadows and the echoes of a rural life reluctant to disappear.First of all, we want you to relax in the beautiful village of Arenas de Cabrales, one of the main entrances to Picos de Europa. Here you will be able to confirm the goodness of the famous Asturian cuisine in a traditional “sidrería”, and of course, to rest before the mountain days that await us.It was in 1018 when Picos de Europa was first declared National Park, the first of Spain and one of the first natural protected areas in the world. Since then, the National Park has grown to cover 67.000 hectares distributed between Asturias, Cantabria and León.This itinerary goes along valleys, cols, gorges and crags. Villages and mountain huts, and the Cantabrian Sea at sight from the summits… A trek that we assure you that entails a great experience in one of the most beautiful terrains from the Spanish mountains.As the icing on the cake, once we have finished the trek, we want you to know the beautiful and picturesque town of Oviedo, the capital of Asturias. A perfect opportunity to go all over the mPROGRAMME:Day 1. Meeting point for the group in Arenas de Cabrales. Day 2. Puente Poncebos (218 m) - Cares Route - Caín (460 m) - Cordiñanes (860 m).
