WHAT DO OUR HIKING ROUTES IN ASTURIAS INCLUDE?
We offer you different routes guided by a professional mountain guide, for one day. We like our group routes to be an experience for you, and that is why we group them by thematic cycles, depending on the time of the year, type of route, historical elements… We offer you to get to know elements of nature in Asturias, its history, culture, curiosities… And always with the good atmosphere of the group and sustainable tourism as essential elements.
In general, our routes are on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, already organised. But you can also hire our services on demand, starting from 2 people.
WHY COME WITH ASTURIAN WAYS TO DISCOVER ASTURIAS?
- Small groups. Usually the group size does not exceed 8-10 people.
- Free transport included. We have an 8-passenger van and offer you a place if you get on in Oviedo or Gijón (subject to availability, of course).
- Safety. All routes are guided by a qualified mountain guide, with AEGM and UIMLA licence.
- Special routes. We generally look for less frequented routes, either because they are not very well known routes, or because they are not crowded during the year.
WHAT KIND OF HIKES IN ASTURIAS ARE THEY?
ARE THEY TOO DIFFICULT OR HARD FOR ME?
We publish all our activities in the AGENDA, as well as in social networks. Also, if you want, we can keep you updated by whatsapp every week of our latest news on hiking routes.
We offer you a wide variety of excursions in Asturias. In general, all our routes have a moderate level. They are usually routes of between 8 and 16 km, lasting between 5 and 8 hours, at a leisurely pace. We use the approved MIDE method to catalogue each route. You can learn about the MIDE METHOD HERE.
But in addition, to help you distinguish if a route is “one of yours”, we have added our particular
LEVELS OF DIFFICULTY
If you find it difficult to assess a route with the MIDE method, we want to help you to assess the difficulty of the routes. The teddy bear will indicate their difficulty, according to the requirements we give you. Not all the requirements have to be met, it is enough if there is one that conditions the whole hiking route or is the most important characteristic. The bear does not replace the MIDE, nor is its criteria as precise, it only helps you.
