The Asturian coast is one of Spain’s best kept secrets. While the rest of Spain is being baked in the sweltering summer heat this north Atlantic coastline known as the Costa Verde has the perfect climate for an active holiday.
Think Great British summers with warm enough water to swim in, pristine, fine sand beaches, deserted coves, cliffs and rock pools backed by Europe’s only true maritime mountain range the majestic Picos de Europa.
This spectacular coastline is broken up by pretty, traditional fishing villages and towns where folk still look towards the crashing Atlantic for their living. The bustling bars serve up an exciting array of the daily catch with lashings of Asturian culinary tradition, swilled down with local dry cider (or plonk if you prefer).
The ride is aimed at the steady leisure cyclist, taking you on an undulating route through some of Europe’s most stunning coastal scenery, along purpose built ‘off-road’ cycle paths and quiet country lanes, through pastures, vast forests and across river valleys the ride will head west, at times following the ancient pilgrims route the 'Camino de Santiago’.
The trail passes magnificent natural blow holes, Paleolithic cave paintings, an inland beach, fossilised dinosaur footprints and ancient monuments. For those wanting to do a little less cycling the FEVE tourist railway links all the villages along the coast, letting you rest your legs for the next day without missing out on the beautiful views of the countryside you’d have ridden through.
It's a great trip that will give you a true flavour of this proud Spanish region.
