The Peaks of Europe Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Peaks of Europe

The Peaks of Europe is a national park that stretches over the communities of Cantabria, Asturias and Léon. It boasts numerous landscapes and abundant wildlife in the westernmost part of Cantabria. With a total area of over 270 mi², the park plays host to experienced mountaineers who take advantage of the rock climbing and mountain biking, as well as hikers roaming the tracks of the cordillera, without forgetting nature aficionados, who can discover the impressive variety of flora and fauna. If you're lucky, you will spot a few brown bears, as well as wild goats, stags, wild boars, and wolves. On your way, you will see many a rural village and natural monument, making for delightful landscapes. In this region, they are quite something. The Peaks of Europe are worth a visit of at least a few days.
