Highlights

 
     

    Picos de Europa National Park is located in the Cantabrian Mountains and is shared by three Spanish provinces: Asturias, León and Cantabria. Comprising a total area of 67,455 hectares, it is one of the best nature reserves in the world and includes the largest limestone formation in all Atlantic Europe.

    Today I have the great pleasure of inviting you to enjoy some snowshoeing time around the best spots of Picos de Europa National Park. It will be an incredible snow experience that will allow us to try a new way of hiking in an unusual place and from one of the highest points of the national park.

    I have several routes to go snowshoeing. In this way you can choose the one you most like, depending on the length and difficulty that suit your level. These snowshoeing tours take just a day although it can vary depending on the chosen route.

    Our starting point will be Puente Dé, a locality of Camaleño. From there we’ll move to our goal of the day. Then, let me share with you some of the itineraries I have in mind to spend a great snowshoeing moment in Picos de Europa National Park:

    • Upper cable tour (5,79 km) *Easy*
    • Cable – La Vueltona tour (6,44 km) *Easy*
    • Cable- Igüedri- Fuente Dé tour (11,83 km) *Moderate*
    • Fuente Dé- Puerto Tesorero- Horcados Rojos tour (10,86 km) *Moderate*
    • Puerto de Ávila- Fuente Dé tour (12 km) *Moderate*

    So if you want to visit this stunning area in the Cantabrian Mountains in a different way, please send your request. I can help you decide which is the most suitable route for you and your group!

    About the Guide

     
     

    My name is Andrés de la Torre and I´m on of the lead guides at Guías de Picos. I'm a Middle Mountain Sports Technician AEGM, deeply knowledgeable of the Cantabrian Mountains and Picos de Europa.

    Always thinking of new and different activities, the routes I propose are not limited to walking through beautiful places... you will remember the experience for life!

    With a degree in Digital Journalism, I try to organize innovative programs that value local resources and traditions.

    I can not conceive the mountain without friends and I believe that there is no better experience than a bivouac under the stars.

     
     


     

     

    What People are Saying about Guías de Picos

     

    There were a few organisational issues before we started, but for the most part they were resloved. The trip it’s self was absolutely amazing! And the guide was very good.

    Andres was the perfect guide, very accommodating and made the trip fun. Some of the trails were challenging but Andres motivated us and kept us safe throughout. We learnt a lot about Picos de Europa and stayed in some fantastic places. Would recommend to book with Andres.
