El Soplao Cave Trip

After picking you up from your hotel in Santander, we'll set off for the town of Rionansa. During the trip, you'll be able to admire northern Spain's characteristic landscapes of valleys, forests and mountains.

When we arrvive we'll visit the El Soplao cave, that used to be a mine. You'll be amazed by the beauty of this Cantabrian mine, considered to be one of the country's greatest geological wonders.

We'll explore its different tunnels on board a small train and admire the incredible range of stalactites, stalagmites, columns, calcite crystals and rock formations that have formed over the years.

Once we've explored the El Soplao cave, we'll go to the Tina Menor viewpoint in Pechón. You'll marvel at an impressive natural landscape that overlooks the Ria Menor estuary

Finally, we'll head back to the Santander hotels at around 2:30 pm.
