Picos de Europa

Picos de Europa, Spain, Europe

Picos de Europa

If you love riding your bike in fantastic scenery then the Picos is definitely for you. The whole area is a natural park and a landscape that belongs to earlier times.

Every day a challenging route and even the same roads can take on a different perspective at different times of the day. You will enjoy your ride to Comillas on the northern coastline where you can check out the bizarre Gaudi architecture in the grounds of a wacky 1880s gothic castle. Just down the road is Santillana del Mar - one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the whole of Spain. And around the corner is Altamira, famous for the discovery in 1946 of cave paintings thousands of years old. Visit the caves - they really are extraordinary. Further along is the marvellous Guggenheim museum at Bilbao. Another day out will take you up to Covadonga where the twin spired blood red cathedral dominates the skyline. Onwards to Cangas de Onis famous for its huge Roman arch and marvel at the noblemen's palaces nearby. Or just ride and stop off at the many Miradors (viewpoints) along the route. Just be sure to take a big memory card and spare batteries for your digital camera!

Your comfortable, modern, town centre, three star hotel has a secure bike park, swimming pool, great mountain views and is well located for local facilities (bars, restaurants, quad biking, canoeing, horse riding, fishing - this place really has got the lot) and it's absolutely on the doorsteps of the most fabulous rides through the Picos De Europa. And they are helpful and speak good English.
