Walking Highlights of the Picos de Europa & Costa Verde

All the spectacular mountain trails and cosy inns of the Picos de Europa, with extra time to enjoy glorious coastal hikes and peaceful golden beaches.

As with all our walking holidays, this is a trip where "wow, look at that view" by day meets "this is the life" by night, as you kick off your boots, fill your glass with something local and relax in three peaceful rural hotels, where the welcome is warm, the food delicious and the surroundings blissfully restful.
