Winter walking in the Picos

This snowshoeing adventure takes us through the dramatically beautiful snow-capped mountains of Picos de Europa National Park. We experience a variety of mountain scenery on snowshoe routes in the Eastern, Western and Central Massifs. As a fitting finale we leave the snow behind and trek along cliff-cut pathways through the imposing Cares Gorge. Snowshoeing is fun and easy, and doesn't require previous experience.

Tour Highlights

  • Winter Wonderland - Snow shoeing through some of the most dramatic landscapes in northern Spain
  • Covadonga - Visit the imposing Basilica Santa Maria and walk around the stunning glacial lakes of the Western Massif
  • Fuente De - Ride the longest unsupported cable car in the world for dramatic views over the valley 1,834m below
  • Bulnes - Remote and picturesque high mountain village
  • Garganta del Cares - Dramatic one kilometre deep, twelve kilometre long gorge
