Picos Family Adventure

Canoeing, Via Ferrata and Canyoning

This program has been specifically designed with families in mind.  If you are after a fun and exciting adventure holiday with a carefully selected set of activities, that the whole family can enjoy, then this is the adventure for you.

The Picos de Europa mountains are one of Europe’s wildest, most beautiful and relatively undiscovered regions.  No where else in Europe can you be exploring spectacular snow capped mountains in the morning and surfing crystalline Atlantic waves, on pristine beaches, in the afternoon.

Picos Adventures is based in the beautiful seaside town of Llanes, with over 20 beaches, wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants, serving both traditional and international food and a good selection of shops.

DAY 1 – Arrival in the beautiful seaside town of Llanes. Reception at your selected hotel.

DAY 3 – Breakfast. Hiking Tour of the Covadonga LakesThe walk starts from Lake Enol, in the heart of the Picos de Europa and heads up to the top of La Reblagas and then on to the beautiful Majada del Bricial. A Majada is a high mountain meadow, where horses, sheep or other animals are put out to pasture during the mild summer months. The route then continues towards Majada Vega de Enol, crossing a beautiful beech forest, where we will stop to eat with spectacular views of the peaks of the Peñas Santas. The route continues until Lake Enol. In the afternoon, there is a stop in Covadonga to visit the cathedral and Cueva Santa or Saint Cave, in English. Back to Llanes and your accommodation.
