Picos de Europa

The secret is out there

Most people have never heard of the Picos de Europa. Which is no bad thing for those of us who love the peace and quiet of big mountains and deserted beaches. It is very hard to feel stressed in the Picos, it is a place which almost immediately takes you out of the day to day. It might be the echoing cowbells or the constant flow of water. It might be the prospect of a lunch of wood-baked bread, cheese and chorizo made in the nearby village eaten high in the hills, or a harbourside feast of seafood fresh from the sea. There is something for pretty much everyone in the Picos de Europa, they just don’t know it yet.


Whether you sample artisan cheeses at the market in Cangas or walk ancient Roman roads across high mountains, set your own pace as you explore Spain's Picos de Europa mountains equipped with insights from days spent with your own local guide.
