Outdoor Cantabria: what to see
To be the third smallest community in Spain, Cantabria is full of infinite possibilities.
 
The oceanic climate, always benevolent with nature, has endowed it with that green mantle so characteristic of northern communities. But joined to its forests and its valleys, it extends a steep and steep coast that is also full of surprising corners.
 
Between them, it is not surprising that activities in nature are one of the great strengths of tourism in Cantabria.
 
If we start by the sea, we will undoubtedly sound places like Santoña or San Vicente de la Barquera. The first is a paradise for bird lovers; In its marshes you can find more than 20,000 species, most of them aquatic. The second is visited by those who seek to "fly" on the waves, thus becoming a place of pilgrimage for surfers.
 
Moving away from the coast, we will find places where nature sprouts with force and time seems to have stopped, like the natural parks of Saja-Besaya or the Collados del Asón. These places are ideal for hiking and the search for that knowledge that only offers contact with nature.
 
Although Cantabria is not just a place for contemplation. If you are looking for more mobile activities, you will also find them in this region. The large limestone mountains of the Ramales de la Victoria encourage the practice of many adventure activities such as climbing, abseiling, caving or progression via via ferrata. Lots of options to download adrenaline!
 
Water is also abundant in the interior of Cantabria; so you do not have to camp on the coast to enjoy it. The River Deva and the upper Ebro, as it passes through the Picos de Europa, are perfect for rafting, open kayak or river SUP. More than refreshing activities in which excitement and fun are assured.
 
But if we talk about the Picos de Europa, we can not forget about its fauna. Among the most emblematic species we find the Iberian wolf and the brown bear, the great predators. But other mammals are also found, such as the chamois, the deer or the otter. Do not forget your binoculars if you want to observe also the lammergeier, the golden eagle or the small alpine birds of these mountains.
 
Choose your favorite corner in Cantabria and find the perfect adventure.
