From this little isolated village high up in the SE foothills of the Picos we shall make a breathtakingly beautiful circular hike through beech forests, surrounded by mountains and alive with birdsong and wildlife.

Having navigated our way to this remote and pretty little village over 1,100 metres above sea level, we shall begin by dropping down through the village, passing the only inn or meson (where you will receive a warm welcome). Crossing a stream, we will start a steady climb along well-made-up farm tracks, enjoying magnificent views of the surrounding mountains of the Liebana region.

Later we will enter a huge beech forest, full of wildlife. If we are quiet we may see roe-deer, stags and wild boar, maybe even signs of the brown bear (ursus arctus) which is making a slow recovery after reintroduction into this remote area some years ago. Finally we emerge from the forest trails and make our way back down to Caloca.
