After a delicious full breakfast with views over the mountains, your will be picked up from the hotel and you will start the day with a morning drive through a scenic road up to "Covadonga Lakes", one of the most beautiful spots in "Picos de Europa". The road ascending to the lakes is a popular climb in professional road bicycle racing, and the most important climb in the Spanish multi-stage bicycle race "La Vuelta".

You will enjoy jaw-dropping views along the way. The "Covadonga Lakes" is a postcard-perfect valley with two glacial lakes. Goats, sheep, and cows roam freely around the lakes. Artisan cheesemakers make in this remote place one of the best cheeses in the world, "Gamoneu".

There are many stunning hiking trails to follow, you will enjoy the best one for your current fitness level, all you have to do is to enjoy the views and the experience of hiking and breathing fresh air.

During the hike, you will enjoy a gourmet picnic with ham, cheese, homemade bread and wine surrounded by magnificent mountains. An unforgettable experience for a nature lover.

For lunch you will enjoy one of the most memorable meals of your life at “Casa Marcial”, a family-run restaurant awarded with two Michelin stars at the gates of the National Park.

“Casa Marcial” is what you find when you get lost in Asturias, the kind of place where you would stop for an accidental lunch and luck into the meal of your life. A lesson on the connection between landscape and cuisine, an edible and emotional journey through Asturias’ orchards, cheese caves, pastures and coastline.

An authentic fine dining experience where you will savour tradition and you will experience innovation at an idyllic place.

 You are in a region which is the main producer of cider in Spain, cider is part of the social fabric of this region, so the cherry on the cake to this unforgettable day will be an evening cider bar crawl where you will be escorted to a lively town to learn how to pour cider like a local paired with delicious tapas.
