Northern Spain has one of the biggest concentrations of wild deer in Europe in the mountains of Asturias and Castilla y León.

Autumn is the best season to watch one of nature’s great spectacles: deer rutting.

Guided by a local expert you will go for a hike through magical forests to contemplate these stunning mammals in the wild during the most exciting time of the year to watch them.

During the breeding season which occurs from the end of September to November, stags return to the hind’s home range and compete for them by engaging in elaborate displays of dominance including roaring, parallel walks and fighting.

For a truly memorable experience you will have the chance to sleep in a shepherd’s house isolated in the middle of the forest. The best time to watch the deer is just after dawn and at dusk when they are most active, so the shepherd’s house will be the perfect spot so sleep a few hours in between surrounded by nature.

After a full day of emotions for a nature lover why don’t you give yourself a treat? You will be welcomed to “Tierra del Agua”, a luxury Eco Lodge with a Scandinavian design.

Enjoy a massage by the river, discover the Alpine-style spa, or just relax in your room after a delicious meal at the Lodge’s restaurant.
