Sr. Buelga is a knowledgeable guide with a bachelor in geology and lots of experience touring Spain. Included in the price are: quality meals/drinks (lunch in one of the best restaurants of the area, snacks and if desired dinner), tickets to the amazing Fuente De cable car and a professionally made photographic report of your tour. Let's design a customized tour from Santander to the Picos de Europa and back to the city stopping in selected places and villages throughout the journey. This is a private tour with a maximum of four people, it can be completely customized to the likes of the customer. Vehicle: 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser. I am focused in tourism & geology but some people consider I am a true foodie so I always point to my customers to the type of food that they like. The Picos de Europa National Park offers some of Europe's most spectacular mountain scenery. This is only a one day tour but it is just enough for an unforgettable visit to the Picos de Europa and Cantabria.

Excellent trip for family
We just completed a unforgettable trip (2 days) with Juan to Picos de Europa. He has arranged schedule so reasonable with a combination of drive through beautiful villages and hiking to our needs. We visited old mine in the mountain, hiked to old yew forest and visited handful very beautiful and interesting villages. Juan has been super helpful during the trip, our whole family cannot be more happier and this trip is definitely worthwhile to take if you want to have a unique experience in Picos de Europe with teenagers.

Best Tour Picos has to Offer!!!
Dec 2019 • Family
Our tour guide Juan was a true pleasure! He has so much knowledge of Northern Spain and an excellent driver!!!! Those mountains are no joke! Juan was punctual and made our entire day full of stops and memories to last a lifetime. Being with the locals and eating outside the “typical” tourist locations was a really treat. If I could I would have requested him for more touring days in Northern Spain.

En verdad fue un tour excepcional que nos vamos a recordar por muchas años. Gracias por tu guía Juan y toda la atención que nos distes. Hasta fotos bellas!

An Excursion into the Picos De Europa
Aug 2019 • Friends
My father and I were taken by Juan to the Picos de Europa and enjoyed a very well planned and executed itinerary. Beginning with a drive through a magnificent gorge, Juan's light temperament made for a very enjoyable sightseeing experience. Juan appears to enjoy the trip as much as we do, admiring various rock formations and trees along the way. Later we climb a mountain with his 4WD and hike to a forest of ancient trees. Afterwards, we enjoyed a formal lunch with local flavor. Without giving anything else away, my father and I both highly recommend Juan to anyone looking to experience these awesome mountains. He is a very nice and easygoing guide, whose geological backgrounds offers interesting insight into the mountains.

My husband and I had a great time with Juan. We were very limited on tours considering we were coming from Sandanter (and no tours were really running at the time of year that we were there.) He customized a full day trip for us. It was so nice not to have to drive our own car. The Picos are just beautiful, we would never of been able to see what we did without Juan driving us. I highly recommend his tour!

Stunning, indeed
Sep 2018 • Solo
The costa verde is as lush as Ireland and with more dramatic scenery. Even better is having a native escort you into the peaks of Europe! The guide is highly intelligent, has a great command of English and has a sense of humor. Sr. Buelga can hold forth on many topics and show you examples, from cathedrals high on a cliffsie to early Bronze Age copper mines from 5,000 years ago. You will have a customized experience based on your interests

A whole day could be spent pursuing the penultimate goat cheese, stopping in one picturesque village after another. In general, the foods of Asturias offer variety : meats and sausages, seafood like the fresh anchovies, trout from the rivers, and pastry treats and hearty breads. To experience a glass of sidra [cider] poured from high above in an arc, is unforgettable.
