This 3 day hike connects the towns of Bulnes and Caín, running away from the mass of the route of Cares, which will take us to feel the steepness the ancient shepherds of Picos de Europa used to feel, in which was known as extreme grazing. We will go through old and forgotten paths, and we will talk about their lifestyle and their traditions as well as getting to know their gastronomy.
