Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. A circular route, it is approximately 9km 5. Although it starts with a slope upwards, the rest of the trail is pretty flat and easy going, passing through green pastures and cute villages. Located in the heart of the Picos de Europa in Cantabria, the hike takes just under an hour and is downhill the whole way — perfect for those with little legs who find it difficult climbing steep slopes. As well as an easy downhill run, it offers spectacular views and a great end destination at the charming village of Espinama, where you can relax with a drink. Just 5 km 3 miles long, the Brez circular route is an excellent choice for the whole family. It starts and ends at the picturesque village of Brez, located in the north of Cantabria, and is framed by rocky pinnacles. The two mountain lakes of Enol and Ercina are some of the most stunning parts of the park — glinting like two mirrors, reflecting the snowcapped peaks around. The route around the lakes is easy and flat, and is just 5km 3 miles long. Children will have a great time spotting the cows, sheep and horses which graze on the green pastures around the edges.

Hiking: route under Picos de Europa
Cantabria is one of the great destinations for hiking lovers. Among the different routes of Spain, is one of our favorites. It presents a circular route , reason why you will not return by the same way that you have gone. Total: 9 kilometers of road that we can walk on foot in 3 hours. In Mogrovejo you will find a bar to take power and free parking to leave the car.
H iking holidays with kids can go badly wrong. One walking trip we did was cited long afterwards by our youngest as an infliction of cruelty. In part this was down to the beauty of the mountains, which are dramatically steep and craggy — the Dolomites of Spain. Thereafter, the views were so captivating that complaints halted. We had a few murky days but most were warm, sunny and clear. The mountain range is small, just 40km by 20km, though roads are so winding that driving a circuit round it takes a full day. Even in high summer the roads and trails were surprisingly quiet. Only the main resort town of the area, Potes, felt busy. This may be down to association: northern Europeans associate Spain with heat, beaches and Moorish architecture, not craggy, Atlantic mountains. This is very popular but has just two small cars making the dizzying metre climb.
