  • Driving for 7 hours to reach the Santiago de Compostela from San Sebastián, we had one day of poor weather over the entire month long trip. So here we were in the chilly altitude and broken clouds...

  • At the time of visit (September 2022) you can only gain access via the road before 08:00 in the morning. After 8 o'clock, the barrier at Cavadonga is lowered and access is only for arranged guided tours. We got up early and made the effort and was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise. Well worth getting up for but the ride up is a little daunting in the dark. Do it!
  • An area of truly outstanding natural beauty, there's something for everyone from hiking & climbing, canoeing, gastronomy, flora, fauna & much more. Picturesque, traditional villages provide a warm welcome wherever you go.
  • An amazing experience at the first national park in Spain. Great hikes , plus you can do a 4 hours SUV tour of the view points
  • The headline says this is a well forested mountain range but really the cable car gets you above tree line quickly and you have an excellent high mountain experience. If you are a birder look for the Wallcreeper on the trail going up to the pass. But gets you to some rock walls up close. Look for the high Mt specialties too. Good chance for rare mountain goat too, Cantambrian Chamois.
  • the Picos Europa form a barrier behind the coast of Bilbao San Sebastian and other cities along the north coast of spain. They are magnificent and totally sublime. Travelling up from the plains of Spain (where it doesn't rain) is such a marvellous experience if not a little teeth clenching at times! You ascend through huge gorges cut out of the Picos and wind your way through the breathtaking scenery until you reach Fuente De and then continue to the coast. A virtually unknown delight
