Picos de Europa

Picos de EuropaRising dramatically straight from the rugged coastline to a height of over 2600m (very nearly twice Ben Nevis) the spectacular Picos de Europa form the rocky heart of Green Spain. The Picos, as they are commonly known, are divided into three massifs, in Asturias the Central and Western, which are dramatically divided by the mile-deep Cares gorge - providing one of the regionís most famous walking routes - and the Eastern, which sits above the Valle de Liťbana on the Cantabrian side. Home to bears and wolves as well as a host of birds of prey, vultures and other bird life and a myriad of butterflies, this is a nature loverís dream and a paradise for walkers of all abilities, mountaineers, cyclists and all who enjoy adventure sports.
