If you're feeling a little adventurous, I recommend at least a day hike that starts with a ride up to the top of the mountain from the Fuente De cable car. I have hiked a lot in North America, but these mountains are very rocky...More

We began this walk from Poncebos near to the Bulnes funicular. Parking was difficult as this is a very popular walk, especially at the weekend. As you drive from Arenas to Poncebos you'll pass through a short tunnel and the road swings to the left,...More

The scenery is breathtaking with many spectacular walking trails. The many villages within the park contain restaurants serving local foods. Local cider is very popular. Staying in the smaller villages is like taking a step back into the past with cows walking down the narrow...More

Hiking is a thing you should do while you visit them. There are many routes that you can download before going, the easiest way is to catch the Bulnes funicular in Poncebos or "El cable" in Fuente De. Remember to take enough water with you...More

We did a two day trip through these gorgeous mountains. The sharp gray peaks, swift flowing rivers and contrasting green scenery provide some of the best scenery in Europe. We stopped to shop in a delightful quaint old village called Santillana del Mar and then...More

Hello, I know there is a large bronze statue of a stag, but I am unable to locate it on any map and Google is of no help. A map reference or coordinates would be sooo appreciated. Thanks

Sorry, but I never came across this on my travels.
Hi! My girlfirend and I are planning a trip to Picos De Europa. We are thinking about flying into Bilbao, Spain and renting a car to drive to Picos. Sounds like you had a great two day road trip to Picos! Do you mind letting me know the details of your route? Any websites on suggested reading for planning something similar? Thanks so much! Cheers.
