Description

This isn’t a regular trek. As we explore the Ruta de la Reconquista, we will discover some of the most beautiful areas in the Picos de Europa mountain range. On this 4-days hiking adventure we’ll learn about the cultural and historical significance of this route, that goes along the GR-202.

The road we’ll take guards important historical sights, from when the Visigoths controlled the Iberian Peninsula, with its capital in Toledo. The route keeps remains of the bereberes troops after the Covadonga battle, along with spectacular valleys, glaciers, paths, canals and shepherds folds. Some highlights include the Vegas de Sotres y Ávila glacier, the Cable de Fuente Dé viewpoint and the Hermida cliff.

Our route consists in four stages that go through the three massifs of Picos de Europa, staying in charming refuges and hotels and the end of each stage.

Furthermore, I’ve designed this itinerary to keep it comfortable and accessible. Thus, participants won’t have to carry heavy bags. Exquisite meals will be served for us every day, and we’ll stay in places with all the amenities necessary. All you have to worry about is enjoy the breathtaking sceneries of Picos de Europa, as you trek across them.

We’ll begin at one of the most important grasslands in Picos de Europa. Then, we’ll head towards Cornión, the western massif. Upon arrival, we’ll trek to the central massif, hiking through the Texu canal to reach the town of Bulnes. Up until 2001 that a telepheric was built, the channel was the only connection to the town. Due to its isolation, it is one of Europe’s most interesting villages to visit.

If you want to come with me on this adventure, all you have to do is send me a request. It would be my pleasure to guide you on this incredible trip.

I also guide this Half-day Hike to the Lakes of Covadonga, if you want a shorter trip.
