Activities in El Cares campsite

This is the best part of Camping El Cares. In the campsite, there are many different activities that we can do.

Route of the Cares

The route consists of 2 different parts. The first one from Posada de Valdeón to Caín, descends through lush green forest, surrounded by high peaks of more than 2000m, entering the gorge between the central and western massifs. The second one from Caín to Puente Poncebos, part known as “garganta divina” (divine gorge), opens up along a path carved in the limestone, sometimes with tunnels and sometimes with bridges that cross the Cares, and allows us to see the peculiar path.
