The Picos de Europa National Park is home to a hidden gem the locals don’t want you to know about.

On this culinary adventure, you will be in search of ‘Pitu de Caleya’, free-range chicken. But this isn’t just any free-range chicken; it is the most delicious in Northern Spain, which is why the locals want to keep it for themselves.

Far from prying eyes is a restaurant that few outsiders know about. Here you will sample its mouth-watering signature dish, free-range chicken rice.

But before you get to sample the ‘Pitu de Caleya’ you get to explore the Sella River by canoe, under the watchful eye of excellent instructors.

Later you come down from the mountains to the historic fishing port of Ribadesella, where you will stay in a beachfront palace, now a luxury hotel. With a beachside restaurant, elegant rooms and stunning views over the Cantabrian Sea, it is the perfect place to relax.
