Somiedo Natural Park Day Trip

At the selected time we'll meet at the Avilés Central Station and head southwest until we reach the Somiedo Natural Park, one of the most spectacular natural areas in Asturias.

We'll then arrive at the Santa María del Puerto de Somiedo, winner of the Exemplary Town of Asturias award in 2021. This town is located in the Somiedo Natural Park, which is home to the Cantabrian brown bear and some of Spain's most spectacular valleys and lakes. This particular park is made up of four different valleys and is located in the central part of the Cantabrian Mountains.

Our route will continue to La Peral, where livestock farmers once lived with their animals during spring, summer and autumn. Here, you'll see the typical huts with braña roofs that have withstood the test of time. We'll also pass through Pola de Somiedo. This beautiful village appears in the book A Journey through Spain in the years 1786 and 1787 by the English researcher Joseph Townsend, who speaks admiringly of its natural beauty.

Next, we'll head to Alto Farrapona, where we'll go on a hike across the surroundings until we reach the Saliencia Lakes, one of the most breathtaking places in the park. We'll explore the area for 1 hour and take pictures of this breathtaking natural setting. Later, we'll visit the Ecomuseum of Somiedo, which is the perfect place to learn about the life and rural essence of this area. 

At the end of the trip, we'll head back to Avilés and drop you off at your hotel, arriving 11 hours after starting time.
