Hiking In The Picos De Europa

This week-long trekking adventure takes us into the beautiful high mountain scenery of Picos de Europa National Park. We explore the area in depth with walks in the unspoilt and wild landscapes of the western, central and eastern massifs. We base ourselves for six nights in Sotres - the highest inhabited village in the Picos. This tour showcases some of Spain's finest scenery and includes a hike to the base of the iconic peak of Naranjo de Bulnes. On a trip highlight we trek along cliff-cut pathways through the imposing Cares Gorge - over 1000m deep and 12km long.
