Discover “Cabrales”, a delicious blue cheese birthed in the natural caves of the “Picos de Europa”, Northern Spain’s biggest National Park.

You will have the opportunity to go for a hike to one of the most stunning caves where this cheese is aged and you can help the cheese-maker transport a few wheels of this delicacy from the farm to the cave.

Once inside the cave, you will learn from the artisan cheese-maker how “Cabrales” is aged naturally surrounded by stalagmites and tufas.

A cheese tasting paired with wine and with stunning views over the mountains will be the cherry on the cake to an unforgettable morning for a cheese lover.

Down into the valley, an authentic experience will be waiting for you, a tour at one of the oldest farmers markets in Spain where farmers and shepherds gather every week to sell their organic products in a lively market.

Brush shoulders with the locals to sample delicacies like chorizo, homemade cider, artisan cheeses, dried beans and a rainbow of sparkling-fresh vegetables.

Finally, your day ends at a at 16th-century palace, which has been lovingly converted into a luxury hotel. Its opulent interiors and beautiful antiques create a relaxing atmosphere — the perfect way to unwind while you enjoy spectacular views over the mountains of this evergreen region.
