Los Picos de Europa, in Asturias, forms a unspoiled and wild mountain range. One is immediately under the spell of these grandiose and chaotic landscapes which alternate between dense forests, karstic mountain ranges, winding gorges and mountain pastures. It is in this region of northern Spain that you come across the highest peaks of the Cantabrian Mountains. To take in the sights, we recommend taking El Anillo de Picos, a loop trail through the Montes Vindios. This is where the last warriors of the Los Vadinienses tribe lived, taking refuge in the mountains to protect themselves from the Roman invaders. This land of history and legend has been toured by millions of hikers exploring one of the most spectacular scenery in Spain. Highly sought-after for climbing and trekking, the Picos de Europa keeps all of their promises of adventure and freedom in the heart of nature. There are many easier options available for less experienced trekkers. For a few days or a week, the Picos de Europa are really for everyone!
