Walking Picos de Europa show some of Picos de Europa finest culture and mountains, including a hike to the base of the iconic peak of Naranjo de Bulnes. On a trip highlight we trek along cliff-cut pathways through the divine Cares Gorge – over 1000m deep and twelve kilometres long, amazing views of the picos national park valley.
The Picos de Europa area was the first National Park to be created in Spain at the start of the 20thcentury. Consisting of a limestone massif rising from the northern coast the mountains reaching a height of 2648m. The mountains were primarily formed through glacial erosion; however they now form a barrier to the clouds coming off the Atlantic and are heavily eroded by rivers. The area is not like the Spain most of us picture, the mountains are green with forests at the base containing a massive variety of flora and fauna. Its just like somewhere in Himalayas. And less crowded walks them Camino. Beautiful villages in between the valleys and nice and authentic old Spanish hospitality.
There is a great variety of walks to choose: from leisurely strolls in the foothills, to more challenging routes reaching the peaks of the Picos. However, as the impact of tourism is minimal, you may find that in some areas you don’t meet anybody all day sometimes in the route. Most routes have a history attached, there are old villages and by ways tucked away in the valleys that have changed little through the years. Many of the classic routes that are now popular with walkers were once the only access to these remote villages 30 years ago. These destinations give a fascinating insight into times gone by, as well as picturesque spots for rest and refreshments. In short, the Picos are a captivating mixture of canyons, crystal blue rivers, caves, history and wildlife. Its not less then Himalayas of Europe.
