When we went to Picos De Europa last year to plan a 2016 Tour, we had high expectations of a lovely landscape and a nice time of year to see it- uncrowded, warm but not overly hot.
We certainly weren’t disappointed, and add a hefty dose of local friendliness, ease of getting around, and relative ‘off-the-tourist-trail-ness’ and you are landed.
With majestic scenery and a wonderful welcome from friends we had made at Picos Rock and Snow, getting around the Picos on satisfying walks each day was easy. The Picos are a myriad of great walking trails that link into Camino de Santiago routes heading west across Cantabria and Asturias in Northern Spain- with something to offer walkers at every level of ability.
In May our tour will start with a gentle warm up on the trail from Fuente De– you can see it in the distance in the above picture. Over-nighting in the picturesque village of Sotres nestled among the hills, evenings are to catch up with others, chat to locals, rest and recuperate with fine food in the local Auberges.
Since the start of 2016 Ryanair flights ex Dublin and London have dropped in price so it is even easier now to book your place. In April we are offering deals to people booking together (just ask!) so if you and a friend or partner want to go- it works out cheaper.
Walks are graded each day to suit how you are feeling- how long you want to spend on the trail and what height you want to get to each day. Topping and tailing the tour in local guest houses, a night or two is recommended in the Mountain huts where the atmosphere is truly Cantabrian and the air pure!
As a special bonus, our May 2016 is accompanied by accomplished photographer Tyler Collins, who will be taking extraordinary pictures (as usual) of this special landscape and sure to pass on some handy hints for buddy photographers.
