If you love strong cheeses and want to discover the process of making one of the most famous in Spain, you can't miss this tour of Picos de Europa and of Cabrales cheese from Avilés.
Cabrales Cheese Tour
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Avilés at 8:30 am and set off for the Picos de Europa, one of the most beautiful National Parks in Spain.
The first stop will be the viewpoint of the Pozo de la Oración, an excellent observation point located in the council of Cabrales. From here, we'll admire the immensity of the landscape and talk about the species of animals and vegetation that thrive in this area of Asturias. If the skies are clear, we'll see the Naranjo de Bulnes, one of the symbols of the Picos de Europa.
In the heart of the Picos de Europa National Park, we'll also discover the lifestyle of the shepherds who are dedicated to keeping tradition alive. To do this we'll visit the villages of Arenas de Cabrales, Tielve and Sotres. In addition, we'll also visit a traditional cheese factory and a cave of natural maturing. Afterwards, we'll have the opportunity to taste the product.
Finally, we'll return to your hotel in Avilés, where we'll arrive at 4:30 pm.
