Valles Pasiegos & Puente Viesgo Caves Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Santander at around 9 am and set off on a half an hour journey to Puente Viesgo, home to four extraordinary caves which have been declared World Heritage Sites!

First, we'll discover the Cueva del Castillo cave and marvel at its rock paintings believed to be the oldest in the world! Next, we'll head into the Cueva de las Monedas cave to admire more fascinating prehistoric paintings and original karst formations. 

Our tour will continue with a visit to the town of Puente Viesgo. After exploring its most iconic parts, we'll make our way to the Valles Pasiegos valleys, where the landscape is full of cascading waterfalls and charming wooden houses! We'll stop in Vega de Pas, where you'll have an hour and half of free time to enjoy the local cuisine at your own leisure.

After lunch, we'll head to the Ethnographic Museum so we can learn all about the traditional Pasiego way of life. To finish the tour, we'll take a stroll through the town until we reach the Cascada del Puerto de Estacas de Trueba waterfall. It'll take your breath away!

At the end of the trip, we'll return to Santander and drop you off at the starting point at 6 pm.
