Parque Nacional De Los Picos De Europa, Oviedo Reviews
Beautiful spot great for hiking and mountain biking and the locals were very accommodating. Also very good value for accommodation and food. We has fantastic weather which also helped.
Espectacular! There is so much to do in the park. The clouds can be deceiving even if it is cloudy in the morning the peaks might be super sunny. Even in the fog it is worth hiking up high. The park rangers are super helpful and will provide you with a free map although if you are really looking to hike it is worth getting a more detailed map.
It is an amazing place for hiking but maybe it is much better places for climbing. Buy a hiking map and use gps. The main hiking routes between refugios is well marked. But other routes are not marked with signs but with piles of rocks like some shortcuts to the Torre Cerredo and they split in different directions. Some of the tracks are not easy but doable without climbing.
So much beauty, makes you realize how magnificant GOD is. And when you think that this is just one tiny corner of giant puzzle that is earth.
Incredible natural wonder. The place is phenomenal to visit a beautiful mountain environmental with spectacular views 360°. It is suitable for very experienced hikers with a certain degree of difficult trails, up to (or I should say down to) elders, people with kids and non-extreme sports people like most of us. Some downsidea tough: While going-up with the cable car is magnificently well organized as tickets are numbered and all go up in strict order (thus you can calculate your turn's time), the way back on the cable car is a complete mess which can even take several hours to get to the cable car to go way back down, especially in late evening hours, during rain or storm or any peak/rush time. So take this into account. As with many many other places in the world with cable cars, this one is no longer sufficient for the amount of daily visitors. Otherwise a spectacular place to visit and enjoy.
