Winter excursion through Valdeón Valley

The snow treks available are ideal for novice hikers and traverse one of Spain’s biggest natural environments. Amongst the many treks on offer is the famed and time-honoured Valdeón Snowshoeing. The event takes place on the first Saturday of March every year.

After recent snowstorms, this year there is ample snow on the ground. The now white Valdeón Valley will be sure to leave you breathless.

As a frosty alternative to summer activities, there are many fantastic winter excursions to choose from. If wrapping up and heading out to explore is your style, look no further than a snowy trek in Picos de Europa.

The route is suitable for people of all fitness levels. However, it is no walk in the park.

The route is guided by a professional and, although free, all that wish to take part must sign up on the Valdeón council website (valdeon.org).

At the end of the route, traditional local food is available in the town’s sports centre in the Posada de Valdeón. And as your food settles, what could be better than dancing and a live music performance from ‘Sonido Corco’?

Unfortunately, lodges and camping at Camping el Cares are not available over the dates of the snowshoeing event, but many other accommodation options are available on the Valdeón website.

Hiking equipment is available to rent on the Tovaaventura website if needed.

We hope that we have enticed you to come and explore Picos de Europa with all its Christmassy charm. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
