Situated north of Castilla Y Leon and south of Asturias region, several valleys of enormous beauty are considered Unesco Natural Reserve of the Biosphere. Laciana, Omaña, and Luna Valleys of Castilla y León with the Natural Park of Somiedo are out of the known places to feel nature and find peace.
This tour will unveil this incredible area of Spain, sparsely populated of small towns and villages with deep roots with nature and mountain rural traditions.
While staying in the same accommodation for a few days we will travel to different areas where if lucky we can see bears, wolves and many other wildlife. We will also discover the summer villages and Hight pasture lands where cattle is still a way of life.
