Explore the undiscovered gem of Asturias on foot
8 days €1400 2019: June 24-July 1
For our travelers who love to discover their environment on foot, our most popular B&B based retreat involves daily guided hiking and exploring in Northern Spain. Unpack, unwind and relish in the comforts of home each morning and night, while enjoying the extensive mountain trails of Asturias each day. We are situated in a small rural hamlet, inside the Urbinas La Mesa Natural Park and there is a large selection of routes, many of which leave right from our back door. Whatever your level, ability or desires there are trails to suit you.
As with any great vacation, food is an integral part of what we offer to you. A hearty breakfast, freshly prepared by your hosts, Judy and Juan Carlos, will set you up for your day’s activities. Pack your small daypack and away we go! We will follow gentle hiking trails along footpaths and ancient trade routes, through narrow canyons, over mountain passes, and into wildlife reserves. Surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges, and crystal clear rivers, there is nowhere better to breathe in the pure mountain air and stretch your limbs than right here.
Hiking between 8-12 miles each day, we will find solitude in Spain’s natural spaces and inspiration its untainted villages and rural architecture, where it feels like we have stepped back in time.
After a day of trekking, we’ll unwind with a glass of delicious locally made wine and dine on traditional fayre using local ingredients and produce from our bountiful organic garden. Let us share with you how best to make paella, tortilla de patata or our secret recipe for sopa de ajo (garlic soup). Step inside our Asturias paradise: click here!
