Live the adventure
The itinerary of the activity will be the following:
1st day: We will meet at a meeting point to depart to the final point of the route to park the cars. Later on, a taxi will take us to the starting point of the first stage. We will have to obtain nine stamps in total and the first one will be received at the first refuge. Then we will continue our route until we reach the next refuge where we will spend the night. This first stage is made-up of 14 km, about 5 to 6 hours walking.
2nd day: This is one of the shortest stages of the route. It consists of about 9 km which will be done in 5 to 6 hours. The first part of the route follows a path that will take us to the Naranjo de Bulnes, there, apart from receiving the second stamp, we will have a mandatory stop to see the well known climbing walls. Later, we will continue the route that will take us to the Heart of the Picos de Europa where we will arrive to the next refuge to rest and spend the night.
3rd day: This stage is long and difficult because it is composed of many uphills and downhills. It has a total length of 13 km and a duration of around 7 to 8 hours. When we reach the end of this route we will arrive at the most beautiful shelter.
4th day: In the three previous stages we get stamps twice in each. At this stage we will not get any. It is a simple route of about 11 km that will take approximately 6 to 7 hours to finish, during which we will gain back our strength since it is the least difficult out of all the stages.
5th day: During the last three stages we will visit the last of the massif, the Western Massif, or also called the Cornión, the greenest of all three, with extremely beautiful views. This stage will have a duration of 7 to 8 hours and will cover about 18 km in a day.
6th day: This day is possibly the hardest and toughest of all, since we will be traveling 23km for 10 hours. The route is composed of many ascending trails with difficult access up until we reach the refuge.
7th day: The last stage is the most relaxed of all. It is composed of 7 km which we will cover in a matter of 1 to 2 hours. Here we will end our incredible vacation and arrive to where we left our car on the first day. There we will hold a goodbye dinner for what we wish was an unforgettable vacation for all. T-shirts will be distributed as a reward for completing the route and collecting all the stamps in your passports from the shelters.
It will be a unique experience. Do not think about it, come and enjoy a wonderful vacation.
