Birdwatching at Ponga Natural Park

The headwaters of the Sella River are located in La Fuente de los Infiernos, in the township of Oseja de Sajambre (León). Over thousands of years it has been digging a step towards the sea, the Beyos Gorge: a defile between limestone rocks that allows communication with Castilla and its plateau from this area of Asturias.

Both population of this remote area and the local fauna have got used to the orography of these mountains, which makes them they are unique.

We suggest a great and easy way to recognise and enjoy with birds who live in these valleys. Meet with us the birds from Picos de Europa: we drive you in a birding rout, with a 6-places van, through the most espectacular locations form the Beyos Gorge.

All being well, we might watch griffon vultures, eagles, some beautiful birds from the woods and even bearded vultures (or lammergeier).

We pick you up in Cangas de Onís (or in a meeting point in Amieva or Ponga, if you acommodate there) and start our trip to find the birds inhabiting this natural pass towards Castilian plateau.

We have some scheduled stops at places where we might easily watch birds. We make some short walks, in order to see a few really interesting places.

You will enjoy birds from Asturias and discover a unique landscape at the same time. Although we can not assure the sighting of 100% of the birds this we guarantee: you will enjoy the tour!

In order to avoid the sun bothering us while birdwatching, we visit different places in the morning and in the afternoon. Choose your favourite option:

4 hours tour (morning). We leave at 10 a.m. from Cangas de Onís and get back around 2 p.m.

Full day tour (7 hours). We leave at 10 a.m. from cangas de Onís and get back around 5 p.m. This tour goes around all interesting places at the defile. In addition to these amazing sights, we’ll enjoy having a picnic in a beautiful nook.
