Santander: Picos, Santo Toribio Monastery and Potes Day Tour

1. Santander: Picos, Santo Toribio Monastery and Potes Day Tour

Depart from Santander towards Fuente Dé at 8:30 AM. Arrive at 10:30 AM where you will be able to take the cable car to the upper station, if you wish, price not included. The ride lasts 4 minutes and will take you to a height of 1,823 m above sea level. Spend about an hour at the top to take in the breathtaking views and explore the station surroundings. If you do not wish to go up, you can walk around. Afterward, visit the Monastery of Santo Toribio, a holy place for Christians which houses the Lignum Crucis, the largest preserved piece of wood from the cross of Jesus. Finally, arrive in Potes, the capital of Liébana and considered one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, with its cobbled streets, bridges and medieval tower, Torre del Infantado. Take a short walking tour of the town and you will have free time to eat and shop if you wish in one of its many souvenir shops.

From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

2. From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

Experience part of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route on this half-day tour. Start your tour at the Cathedral of Oviedo, a very important visiting point for pilgrims where you will learn more about the roots of the Camino de Santiago and Primitivo and the role that the Asturian kings and Oviedo played. The first part of the route leads through Oviedo city center and its outskirts. Here, learn more about Asturian culture and gastronomy before entering the beautiful Asturian countryside. You can stamp your pilgrim passport (which you'll receive at the start of the tour) in chapels and bars along the way. Follow the road through small villages along the original, hilly route that hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have taken in previous centuries. Stop along the way to sample some delicious typical Asturian snacks. The tour guide will lead you and tell you about the Camino and Asturias, but there is ample opportunity to enjoy the landscape in silence and meet fellow pilgrims in order to get a real taste of the Camino.

What people are saying about Asturias

This is a great day trip, helped by the fantastic weather (a bit too hot for me, but better than rain and low cloud in the mountains). Jairo was friendly and informative, particularly on nature and ecology. We had an all English-speaking group and there were 6 of us plus Jairo in a 7 seater vehicle. The cable car ride is an extra cost but absolutely worth it and the highlight of the day. Good value for money.

Yes it's wonderful. May be the trip duration could be more and giving more time on the top of Fuente de. But The view and experience at the top is beyond explanation. Gabriella is very knowledgeable and explained in details.

Very well organised. Loved the cable car and drive through Gorge. About the right amount of time in each place. Guide great driver-very friendly and knowledgeable.

It was awesome! Rafael is a great guide, very insightful, funny and an absolute connoisseur of the region's traditions and history. We recommend!

Very nice trip to the mountains "Picos de Europa" with cable car ride and sightseeing of Potes.
