Description

Join me on this incredible adventure across the Tres Macizos in the Picos de Europa. Stay at an authentic shepherds cottage, and summit Sagrado Corazón on this 3 days adventure.

Our hiking adventure will take us through the Sierra del Cuera, which dominates Llanes. Also, it is one of the best viewpoints of the Picos de Europa and the Cantabrian Sea.

On the first stage of our trekking trip we’ll explore enchanting shepherds folds, learning about their traditional lifestyle. Even though this was an area once brimming with shepherds, nowadays, only a few dozen of families remain, mainly producing the famous Gamoneu cheese. Furthermore, we will stay at an authentic shepherds cabin. So we’ll get to recover our energies sitting by the fire and enjoying an exquisite meal.

Then, next day we’ll venture to the heart of the Central Massif as we reach the summit of the highest point at Sierra del Cuera. This area is famous not only for its beauty, but for the production of the Cabrales cheese.

Finally, on our third day, we’ll head back to our starting point, as we enjoy the most incredible views of Picos de Europa. What’s more, we’ll discover a unique mining scenery. And we’ll get to stand at the top of the Sagrado Corazón peak, standing at 2,220 meters approximately.

The first day of our trip, we will trek four about 13 kilometers and the second about 8 kilometers. The hiking routes we’ll take are quite easy. And we’ll do it at a comfortable pace. Hence, this program welcomes everyone, even beginners.

If you want to come with me, send me a request. Let me guide you on this fantastic program in Spain.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
