Hiking and Health Spa in the Picos de Europa

We will leave Santander in the morning and head to Fuente Dé, a town in the heart of the Picos de Europa. During the journey of an hour and a half, you will admire some of the most impressive landscapes of Cantabria, such as the Hermida gorge.

Upon arriving at Fuente Dé, we will take the cable car, reaching an altitude of 5980 feet in just 4 minutes. From the Mirador del Cable observation point, you will have some exceptional views of the Picos de Europa.

Then we start our hiking route of around two and a half hours through the Picos de Europa National Park, enjoying the mountain air and impressive landscapes.

After the hiking experience, we will travel to Potes, a beautiful medieval town in the middle of a valley. After the walk, we will recharge our batteries with a delicious stew of the Liébana region in a local restaurant (food not included).

Then we will take you to the nearby Monastery of Santo Toribio de Liébana. This shrine was established in the 11th century and, according to tradition, houses a fragment of the Vera Cruz.

The last stage of the tour takes us to the Hermida thermal spa, one of the most important sets of natural hot springs in northern Spain. After our day of adventure in nature, you will be more than ready for an hour of relaxing thermal treatments which include a steam bath, a Finnish sauna, a jacuzzi, and a bi-thermal shower.

After you have rested, relaxed, and recovered, we will start our return to Santander, where we will arrive at around 7 pm.
