About this tour

The Picos de Europa, the third-highest mountain range in Spain, is a region of dramatic limestone peaks and lush valleys. Carpeted in beautiful wildflowers in spring, this area is also known as Green Spain. The terrain, tranquillity and inaccessibility make the Picos a walker’s paradise. Chamois, griffon vultures, golden eagles and many other species are regularly seen. Seen less are the bears, wolves and boars that roam the wilds here. We base ourselves at the family-run Hotel Torrecerredo, positioned in the heart of the region and offering panoramas of the highest peaks from its bar and restaurant.
