Itinerary and details

Itinerary description

Reserva tu trekking por los picos de Europa durante la Semana Santa. Vive la naturaleza y la montaña como nunca antes. ¡No esperes más y reserva tu ruta!

Day 1. Arrival at Arenas de Cabrales
Description:

Arrival at Arenas de Cabrales. Reception at the Villa de Cabrales Hotel. Accommodation.

For those who travel by public transport, we can pick them up in San Vicente de la Barquera or Llanes and take them to the hotel on Wednesday the 27th.


Day 2. HIKE LA VEGA DE ARIO. + 600m/– 600m 15 Km
Description:

Breakfast. Transfer to Lake Ercina to begin the HIKE TO LA VEGA DE ARIO. Suppose there is another privileged place apart from the Ordiales Viewpoint in the Western Massif. In that case, it is the Vega de Ario, where we will have incredible views of the entire Central Massif with its highest peaks, Torrecerredo, La Bermeja, the Picos de los Cabrones, etc. and the depth of the Chares Gorge beneath them. The route to the Vega de Ario is very entertaining, crossing different shepherds' flocks to the Marqués de Villaviciosa Shelter in the valley. We rest and eat with magnificent views, and if we still have strength, we can climb the Cabeza La Verde Peak, where we can enjoy unbeatable landscapes, the entire Central Massif, the Cares Gorge and the town of Caín and the Peñas Santas del Cornión. On the way back, we will make a variant to return through Majada de Belbín, famous for producing Gamoneu cheese. Dinner and accommodation.


Day 3. ASCENT TO PEÑA MAIN PEAK. TRAVESÍA SOTRES-TIELVE + 700m/–900m 10 Km
Description:

Breakfast. ASCENT TO PEÑA MAÍN PEAK. This route in the Central Massif takes us to the summit of Peña Maín (1,605 m), which is a strategic location since the panoramic views of the Central Massif are challenging to beat. We leave the Invernales del Texu, near the town of Sotres, to climb towards Collado Pandebano; before arriving at Majada La Roble, we begin the direct ascent towards the summit, first crossing a beech forest and then an area of rocky terrain that will have to be beware. Instead of descending along the same route, we do it through the Invernales del Vierro towards the town of Tielve, which provides us with more interest and new landscapes. Stop in Tielve to try Cabrales Cheese and Asturian Cider and transfer to Arenas de Cabrales. Dinner and accommodation.


Day 4. ASCENT TO BORU PEAK. +600m/– 600m 14 Km
Description:

Breakfast. To finish this beautiful trekking, today we will do the ASCENT TO BORU PEAK in the Eastern Massif. We leave Jito del Escarandi, and following the path that takes us to the Ándara Mines, we arrive at the Casetón Shelter. We continue towards Lake Ándara and attack the ascent to Pico Boru (1,897 m), where we will have a magnificent view of the entire Eastern and Central Massif of the Picos de Europa. We eat at the top and descend along the ridge that will always take us back with the view of the Áliva glacial valley. Return to Arenas de Cabrales. To finish these days and as a culmination, we go to a cider house to celebrate an Asturian Espicha, based on typical portions and Asturian cider. Accommodation.
