Snowshoeing in Picos de Europa45 € IVA incl.
We usually do the activity in the Eastern Massif of Los Picos de Europa, but it depends significantly on the weather and snow conditions.
We leave Llanes at 9.00 and make collections in Cabrales around 9.30.
We reached the Jito del Escarandi at about 1,300 meters above sea level.
First, we put on the Snowshoes, and we explain their use and how to progress with them on different terrains: flat, ascent and descent.
We take the Ándara mines track, an easy track with an ascending but gentle slope until we reach the Ándara Refuge. During the tour, we will make different stops, and we will explain the following contents:
– Choice of safe itineraries with Snowshoes
– Types of avalanches and how to identify them
– Types of snow and how to identify them
We stop to eat a picnic at the Refuge and enjoy the snowy landscape of the Picos de Europa.
After lunch, we can return through the Canal de Las Vacas, a wilder area where you can try Snowshoeing on more complicated terrain.
WHAT TO BRING
Mountain pants, boots, fleece, waterproof jacket, gloves, beanie, suncream, sunglasses and backpack.

The duration is approximate, since depending on the weather and experience of the participants it may vary.
As a general rule and for people who are doing a snowshoe route for the first time, we usually do a route of about 3-4 hours but making several stops.
The route is about 6-7 km with a gradient of about 400 meters.
