This gorge, with its narrow passes and gullies, is right in the heart of the Picos de Europa Mountains. The area’s stunning landscape affords unique views of the National Park.
Getting to know this route is a unique experience. The trail is narrow, surrounded by wild vegetation, with water ever-present. The river flows along the valley-floor, its sound a constant companion in route. Now and again the path takes you through small tunnels carved out of the rock and across bridges that hang over the abyss. All the while, rocky mountainsides tower up on either side of the trail. The itinerary runs between Cain, in Leon province and Poncebos, in Asturias province. It runs parallel to the Cares, the area’s wildest river. The route covers 12 kilometres over easy terrain. The excursion starts in Poncebos where our off-road vehicle will be waiting for you. A wonderful scenic drive from Poncebos until Posada de Valdeón and Cain where your walking path starts. When you finish walking, our transport will be waiting for you in Poncebos.
