The many limestone peaks of the Picos de Europa make for an amazing place to rock climb. There are over 1,000 climbing routes that vary in difficulty, length and styles. Plus, it tends to be a largely unknown rock climbing spot by people not from Spain. This means you don’t have to share it with hoards of crowds (for now anyway). Situated in the North of Spain in the Asturias region, these peaks are located just 130 km from Santander.
The winters are cold and wet and the summers are dry and humid.
Fly into Santander Airport, then get a bus or taxi to the national park.
The best months to visit for rock climbing are the summer months. The best months June and September as they are more quiet.
