“Amazing views”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This was an unexpected detour for me but I'm glad I made the trek. The mountains are beautiful and everything was lush, green, and pristine. I stayed in the quiet town of Potes and the people were very nice and accommodating. A lovely, lovely destination.

“Great Mountains”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great walking territory all round. Beautiful country. Best visited out of high season for easier temperatures for walking and no crowds. Numerous routes for strollers and more serious walkers

“Creation at its best”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stayed in Sames, down the road from Cangas de Onis, at the end of August and beginning of September 2013. This is a great place to stay if you want to disconnect and decompress.

Their are plenty of things to do and visit, and wonderful places to just go for long walks in unspoiled countryside.

The food is excellent, and you do not have to spend a lot of money to eat well. On the other hand if you want there are a couple of Michelin stared restaurants in the region if you want to splash out.

If you like hiking then this is the place for you.

“Fantastic walking”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

First of all - Get to the top car park at the lakes (Enol & Ecrina) before 8.00am in the morning as they close the 10km long mountain road by Covadonga at 8.30am - Otherwise you have to pay to take the coach up.

The views of lakes Enol and Ercina are beautiful. Then head towards the Refugeo de Vegarredonda in the mountains for a coffee / recharge, then further up to Mirador de Ordiales. Outstanding views all the way! Note: This is for serious walkers!
