Meet with JEC Spain in the stunning mountains of Northern Spain and discover a land of contrasts. From beaches to mountains this lovely part of Spain encompassing Cantabria and eastern Asturias is a treasure trove of landscapes full of winding scenic roads, great cities and untouched villages, haute-cuisine and superb local fare, all criss-crossed by the ancient Camino de Santiago, Europe’s most important pilgrim way.
The Picos de Europa on the borders of Asturias, Cantabria and Castilla y León, is probably the most stunning National Park in Spain, or even Europe. The contrasts within these 300 square miles of spectacular natural beauty that link Cantabria and Asturias are amazing. Small mountain villages are tucked away in the higher slopes almost completely isolated. Deep gorges that plunge vertically down into deep river valleys, sparkling lakes, and magical forests make this an adventure playground just begging to be explored.
