Santander: Picos, Santo Toribio Monastery and Potes Day Tour

1. Santander: Picos, Santo Toribio Monastery and Potes Day Tour

Depart from Santander towards Fuente Dé at 8:30 AM. Arrive at 10:30 AM where you will be able to take the cable car to the upper station, if you wish, price not included. The ride lasts 4 minutes and will take you to a height of 1,823 m above sea level. Spend about an hour at the top to take in the breathtaking views and explore the station surroundings. If you do not wish to go up, you can walk around. Afterward, visit the Monastery of Santo Toribio, a holy place for Christians which houses the Lignum Crucis, the largest preserved piece of wood from the cross of Jesus. Finally, arrive in Potes, the capital of Liébana and considered one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, with its cobbled streets, bridges and medieval tower, Torre del Infantado. Take a short walking tour of the town and you will have free time to eat and shop if you wish in one of its many souvenir shops.

Cangas de Onís: Sella River Canoeing Adventure

2. Cangas de Onís: Sella River Canoeing Adventure

Start your Sella River canoeing adventure on a 500-meter practice stretch before getting to the good stuff in Arriondas, the most heart-pumping fun you’ll find along this river. Continue on for another 8 kilometers to Toraño or the extra 15 kilometers to Llovio, depending on what option you’ve selected and how much of the beautiful landscape you want to experience. During the summer, these sections don’t have as many rapids or canoe traffic. If you’re with family, the first section from Las Rozas to Arriondas, which lasts about 1 to 2 hours, might be the perfect stretch for you during the summer months. During the spring, this stretch is more for those seeking adventure.

From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

3. From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

Experience part of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route on this half-day tour. Start your tour at the Cathedral of Oviedo, a very important visiting point for pilgrims where you will learn more about the roots of the Camino de Santiago and Primitivo and the role that the Asturian kings and Oviedo played. The first part of the route leads through Oviedo city center and its outskirts. Here, learn more about Asturian culture and gastronomy before entering the beautiful Asturian countryside. You can stamp your pilgrim passport (which you'll receive at the start of the tour) in chapels and bars along the way. Follow the road through small villages along the original, hilly route that hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have taken in previous centuries. Stop along the way to sample some delicious typical Asturian snacks. The tour guide will lead you and tell you about the Camino and Asturias, but there is ample opportunity to enjoy the landscape in silence and meet fellow pilgrims in order to get a real taste of the Camino.

What people are saying about Asturias

It was very enjoyable and informative journey with the lovely knowledgeable driver. If she was not there we would not be able to know certain historical facts though would have enjoyed natural beauty. Thanks to her. I will certainly recommend my friends and will like updates to be sent to me for any such excursions.

I enjoyed this trip. I got to see things I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I am traveling without a car, so it was the best way to see the mountains. It is a little bit expensive considering lunch and the cable car are not included. But, I still enjoyed a full day of sightseeing.

Yes it's wonderful. May be the trip duration could be more and giving more time on the top of Fuente de. But The view and experience at the top is beyond explanation. Gabriella is very knowledgeable and explained in details.

Gabriela ha sido una excelente guia, súper responsable y muy explicativa con cada uno de los puntos que visitamos. La experiencia de todo el tour fue excelente, lo recomendaría y lo volvería a hacer sin dudas.

it was perfect people were very cute the guide was perfect and available all the time for any question
