We are avid hikers and this is possibly the most spectacular trail we have done in our life. Carved along the wall of the canyon, the views just cannot be described. Long but technically easy, it is an absolute must. Add this to your bucket...More

Strongly recommend the trip to Cares to hike the 20km route (return). It is very easy to walk and beautiful no see. Need to visit early in the morning to escape the heat and crowd. Best to visit in september or june (off season).

The path from Poncebo to Cain is 12 km. The first 2 km is going up. After that straight ahead with the most amazing views. The path is easy to walk if you are in reasenable condition. We went half the way and back to...More

Beautiful hike following the river gorge, really incredible from the high cliff walls to the different vistas around every turn. I started my hike in Pocebos at 1100 and got to Cain in time for lunch. A few restaurants all serving 12 euro daily menus...More

Access to this walk is from Pontebos. Parking along the road is the best - there's generally plenty of room to turn around at the start of the track. Starts with a climb and then levels out to a fantastic walk along the Cares gorge...More

We had traveled to the Picos several years ago and from that time until now we had a desire to hike the Cares Gorge. Wow, what a beautiful, harsh, accessible and memorable hike. It is advertised as moderate. I would say that as an infrequent...More

This river flows down from the mountains and passes through the centre of town. It is shallow and the sound of the water is pleasant.
