Thank you, Raton, for your Cantabria website and your comments here. After reading them I amended my itinerary but still need help.
We are a couple from Melbourne (Australia) in our fifties, mobile, flexible and curious. It is our third big driving trip in Spain (people don't understand why we are going to the same country again and again – they just don’t know how beautiful and diverse Spain is). We will arrive to Oviedo on the 15th of June and will fly out from Biarritz on the 30th.
I will really appreciate if you and other travelers comment my plan for the first 10 days of our trip:
Day1. Oviedo (Hostal Romero-2 nights) - exploring the city
Day3. Oviedo to Las Arenas de Cabrales (3 nights): Holy Savior de Valdedios – Villaviciosa – Ribadesella - Llanes- Villahormes/Llames ( Playa Gulpiyuri) - Las Arenas de Cabrales (Casa de Aldea Florentina)
Day4. Puente de Poncebos - the Cares Gorge walk
Day5. Canges de Onis, Monasterio de San Pedro, Covadonga & Lakes of Covadonga walk (or skip the Lakes walk and go to Bulnes? Can we do both in one day? )
Day6. Las Arenas to Potes (2 nights): Trescares – Panes- Hermida - Liebana - Monastery of Saint Toribio – Mirador de Santa Catalina - Potes, a bike ride to Iglesia de St Maria Piasta(?)
Day9. Cueva El Castillo (may be El Pendo or Monedasas well ) – bike ride to Ontaneda
I am overloaded with info & start to panic. May be the days are overloaded and I need to skip some places? I will be very happy to hear any suggestions. Thanks to everyone.
