Picos Trekking Week – Northern Spain

This is a trek of ever changing and spectacular scenery from vertical rock spires which climb skywards to plunging and steep sided gorges which descend into the depths. It is also quite remote in places and its possible to really feel the quiet of the mountains and experience a lot of wildlife as we

get away from the crowds. We will see a lot of birds of prey, including vultures, eagles and buzzards and wild Chamois and mountain goats while we are trekking.

This is a six day trek, with seven nights accommodation in a mixture of refuges (mountain hostels) and small hotels. The walking and views are stunning, but it is a demanding trek, with significant ascents and descents on some days over rocky and uneven ground.

The Northern coast of Spain is perfect for combining mountains, coast, beautiful cities and of course wine (Rioja is very near) in a single trip. The schedule will finish around mid-afternoon in a comfortable hotel near Potes with a swimming pool. This then gives you the choice of staying on to relax by the coast, explore one of the many fantastic cities, or returning home to the UK.
