AN ADVENTURE IN ASTURIAS
Asturias, a natural paradise – 7 days
The ‘Picos de Europa’, Kayak, Bicycle, Forest, Cantabrian Coast, Culture, Comfort and Nature
Asturias: one of the best-preserved areas of the entire peninsula. A paradise for nature lovers. Spectacular mountains, valleys and small towns. The National Park of the ‘Picos de Europa’; ‘Tejeda de Peña Mayor’, is one of the most unique mountain ranges of central Asturias; walk through magical forests of ancient yews and small villages of pure Asturian style. The mountains next to our village are virtually unknown, small idyllic rivers run through them surrounded by vegetation more typically found in tropical countries. From the mountains to the best-preserved coastline of Spain, according to a Greenpeace report. Crossing in peace and quiet by kayak to the Ría de Villaviciosa Nature Reserve; bird watching; Rodiles beach.
Cycling the route along the coastal path of Cantábrico, from the small village of Buelna to finish in Andrín: exploring caves, canyons, unexpected inland beaches and huge cliffs that seem to fall into the sea. Nature, culture, traditions and exquisite cuisine, by the sea and in the mountains: Fabada stew, fish and seafood, Asturian hotpot, cheese and, of course, cider … Suitable for everyone with a spirit for adventure and in average physical condition.
An active but simple trip in a rural environment, mountaineering and at the same time marine, as welcoming as ‘La Casona del Faro del Norte’, the wonderful accommodation where you will rest after the routes. Contact with nature away from the hustle and bustle. An unforgettable experience… this is Faro del Norte.
