With the arrival of spring and good weather, we find in our country a variety of routes to do and enjoy the fresh air. These routes, characterized by going deep into nature, take us to all kinds of places: forests, caves or even waterfalls. Following the recommendations of ‘lonely planet’ with his book ‘1000 ideas to travel around Spain’, We bring you the ten affordable routes to do this season.
Pinsapar de Grazalema (Cadiz)
This route takes us fully into a landscape made up of Spanish firs, a mountain fir tree that led to the declaration of this area as the first Biosphere Reserve on the Iberian Peninsula. The trail begins in Las Canteras and passes through Puerto de las Cumbres to the small town of Benamahoma.
Barbate Cliff Path (Cádiz)
The Barbate Cliff path joins the Hierbabuena beach with Los Caños de Meca, and offers us one of the most spectacular views of the Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park. The route passes through cliffs, dunes and beaches of spectacular beauty.
Source of the Zadorra (Navarra)
The Route of the Centenary Oaks of Munain and Okariz crosses a spectacular space populated by more than 500 centuries-old trees. The route goes deep into the foliage of the forest until it reaches the foot of Peña Roja, where we find a small spring at the source of the Zadorra River.
Deza Trail (Pontevedra)
The Deza trail joins three emblematic places in the Deza region: the Fervenza do Toxa, the A Carixa River beach and the Carboeiro Monastery. Along its 6 kilometers we find several viewpoints where we can look out and marvel at the natural spectacle of the place.
Source of the river Asón (Cantabria)
In the Soba valley, the enormous waterfall at the source of the river Asón forms one of the most spectacular landscapes in Cantabria. A huge horsetail of more than 50 meters that can be reached by a simple route of 7 and a half kilometers that begins in the town of Asón.
Forest of Mirrors (Salamanca)
Through the Batuecas Sierra de Francia Natural Park, we can make an interesting tour through the so-called Forest of Mirrors. It runs between the municipalities of San Martín del Castañar, Las Casas del Conde and Sequeros, and along the way we will come across sculptures and other works of art integrated into the nature of the place.
Vero River Canyon (Huesca)
Between the towns of Lecina and Alquézar, the river Vero has been excavating the calcareous walls of the Sierra de Guara creating all kinds of caves, galleries and fractures in the ground over the centuries. We can tour the area through various routes between large rock outcrops up to 200 meters high.
Nogaledas Gorge (Cáceres)
On the banks of the Jerte valley, the route that runs through the Nogaledas gorge crosses a beautiful landscape made up of walnut, oak and alder trees for 5 kilometers dotted with beautiful waterfalls and waterfalls.
Mairuelegorreta Cave (Alava)
The Mairuelegorreta Cave is one of the best places to practice caving in the entire Basque Country. We find it in the Gorbeia Natural Park, and within it we can take a simple tour through its galleries.
Help river gorge (Álava)
Following the course of the river Ayuda, we can make an easy route that joins the town of Okina, in Álava, with that of Sáseta, already in Burgos. This route enters the leafy oak and beech forests, and discovers small waterfalls along the way.
