We’ll depart from Tuiza de arriba, a charming town at 1,230 meters. Then we’ll head to the Meicin shelter (1.549m). Due to its excellent location, right in the center of the circus formed by the highest peaks in the massif, I’ve chosen this shelter. After reaching the hut, I will take you to the summit of Peña Cerreos (2,104m). From there, you’ll have fantastic views of Peña Ubiña and it’s a great place to take the best photos. The total distance of this trek will be of 8 kilometers.
We will begin our day at the Meicin shelter, from where we’ll head to the Terreros hill. Then, I’ll guide you to the top of the Peña Ubiña peak, another great spot for pictures and mesmerizing views. Today, the walk will be 7 kilometers.
Departing from the Meicin shelter, we will go to the town of Tuiza de arriba. There we will begin a wonderful circular route. We’ll pass by a stunning lake in a balcony on Puertos de Agueria. Then, to finish our route we will climb the Bocaron pass, that will take us back to Tuiza. Finally, we’ll arrive to our shelter to spend the night and recover for next day’s adventures. The total trek will be of 16 kilometers
Finally, we’ll spend our last day trekking through some of the most beautiful parts of the route. We will head to the town of Lindes (930m). Then, I’ll take you to the summit of Peña Rueda (2.155m). After that, we will cross the Puertos de Agueria, to complete anotehr circular route that will take us back to Lindes. By the end of the day we would have walked 15 kilometers.
