Description

I will take you on an amazing two-day trip to one of the most beautiful parts of the Picos de Europa! We’ll take incredibly scenic routes to the glacial Lakes of Covadonga and Puertos de Aliva and enjoy magnificent views as we trek the heavenly landscape of serene lakes, meadows and high mountains!

The Picos de Europa is a mountain range located in northern Spain and is a part of the Cantabrian Mountains.

On this 2-day trek, we’ll hike a terrain that is mostly flat and ideal for beginners.

On the first day, I will pick you up from the previously agreed spot and we’ll drive to the Lakes of Covadonga. We will see Vega de Carrasco, the flock of Belbín or the Vega de las Mantegas on the way.

We’ll enjoy nature in all its glory, taking short breaks whenever required, to enjoy the beautiful landscape.

You’ll be able to take in the fresh mountain air as we hike. And once we reach the Covadonga Lakes, you’ll be awe-struck by the stunning views of the two glacial lakes, surrounded by mountains.

We’ll begin the second day by driving to the starting point of the hike. It involves a walk from Collado de Pandébano to the Puertos de Aliva. The route is about 20kms and is easy to cover, like our previous route.

First, we’ll visit Las Vegas de Sotres, an ideal spot for shepherds and grazing cattle, located on the flat bottom of the valley. Here, you’ll be able to spot the old stone houses. Next, we’ll head to Puertos de Áliva.

You’ll be spellbound after seeing long stretches of meadows surrounded by soaring peaks at this peaceful spot!

Don’t miss this chance to visit the Asturias and live an authentic rural experience! Request to book now. Also, check out this 2-day trek in the Sierra de Cuera if interested in another adventure in Spain.
