Discover everything about sustainable tourism in León
The province of Léon, one of the largest in Spain, has a great landscape and historical richness. Crossroads, for their environment have passed Astures, Visigoths, Romans and Arabs; leaving behind a great cultural wealth that, together with its flagrant environment, make this province one of the best for practicing nature activities in Castilla y León.
 
And it is that the possibilities to practice nature tourism in León are countless, given the large number of natural spaces that it has, many of them protected. Landscapes of great beauty, so varied among themselves that they give the sensation of not visiting a single land, but many.
 
To the north, the mountains, which extend from the Sierra de los Ancares to the National Park of the Picos de Europa, in the northeast corner of the province. To the west, the amazing landscape of Las Médulas, which seems to be taken from another planet. And to the south, the lakes of Truchillas and La Baña. Without forgetting other beautiful places like the Hoces de Vegacervera or the Valleys of Babia and Luna.
 
This variety of landscapes and reliefs is evident in the configuration of the different habitats. Spaces that determine, not only the animal and plant species that can be found in them; but also the architecture, the traditions and the way of life of the people who inhabit them.
 
But in addition, this privileged and diverse geography, leads to the realization of a number of adventure activities in the province of León. The most obvious of it, maybe it's hiking. The number of routes that extend through the province is immense. There are for all tastes and levels. To take a leisurely stroll admiring the landscape or to explore the mountain without rest, looking for hidden or forgotten corners.
 
But there are those who prefer to explore the subsoil. In this case, the caves that open below the surface are the key place to enjoy caving. Perhaps it is the most famous cave of Valporquero; a unique cavity, with impressive galleries created at the mercy of an underground river.
 
Other sports have their place in the mountains of León, such as climbing or canyoning. And, when snow prevails, activities such as skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing begin to be the most popular.
 
In short, a province full of opportunities in which the passage of time only strengthens its greatness.
Reasons to try out León as a ecotourism destination
A kingdom ruled by three kings
 
The magnificent landscape of the Picos de Europa is made up of three massifs bounded by deep valleys and gorges. The central massif is the most rugged and where the greatest heights are concentrated.

On either side, the eastern and western massifs complete this trio of kings that dominates the territories of three provinces: Asturias, Cantabria and León. One of the most demanding treks in the Picos de Europa consists in touring the three massifs for several days. The best way to know the grandeur of these mountains!
 
The Divine Throat
 
This is how the route that crosses the Cares gorge is known; one of the most impressive of Picos de Europa. Between two provinces, the route begins in Caín (León) and ends in Poncebos (Asturias), or vice versa.

The road, literally carved on the mountain, follows the course of the river for 12 kilometers and is available to almost anyone.
 
The heart of the Leon mountain
 
Of all the caves that can be visited in Castilla y León, the most attractive is that of Valporquero. Despite being the youngest of these cavities, with "just" a million years, it has seven rooms full of columns, stalactites, stalagmites and other whimsical shapes. The tour includes the surface rooms of the cave in a guided tour.

But, if adventure is your thing, you will not be able to resist following the underground river that formed the lower galleries, in an activity that will make you feel like a true spelunker.
 
A route of height
 
The via ferrata of Valdeón was the first via ferrata of the Picos de Europa and, nowadays, it is already a reference in the Cantabrian mountain range. With a level K4 (medium-high), this road is characterized by being long, demanding and very aerial. But, in addition to the spectacular nature of the route, the environment that surrounds it is equally unique. Awesome views from a path not optimal for those who suffer from vertigo.
 
Whitewater descents
 
If you prefer water activities, the province of León also has rivers and reservoirs where it is possible to enjoy the soaking adventure. Sports such as canoeing or kayaking, perfect to practice in calm waters, joins rafting, king of whitewater sports, to make you jump with emotion.

The Porma and Esla rivers are the best for the practice of this sport. With sections of different levels of difficulty and a unique place.
Winter alternatives
 
The fun does not end with the cold. In León there are two mountain resorts, San Isidro and Leitariegos, where you can enjoy all the experiences that winter offers. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or sledding with dogs are some of the available options. Activities suitable for the whole family, to help us enjoy the mountains as much as in summer.
