HIKE TO NARANJO DE BULNES
Excursion to the iconic peak of the Picos de Europa
We drive to Sotres Village and then the short distance to the tiny hamlet of Pandebano. Leaving our vehicle, we walk up to Collado Vallejo (1.500 m), where the huge monolith of the Naranjo de Bulnes (Pico Urriellu 2519 m) comes into view.
This rust-coloured mountain is the famous iconic image of the Picos.
We walk up to the very base of the mountain (2.000 m) where there is a refuge. We rest, eat packed lunch and the chance to see climbers attempting to scale the improbable sheer face.
We retrace our steps to Pandebano where our transport awaits us to return to our base.
