#3 - Camino Primitivo Full Route

Length: 185.9 mi • Est. Multi-day
The Original Way or Primitive Way has this name since it was the first route to Santiago de Compostela, when in the 9th century most of Spain was still under Arab control. The Camino de Santiago became the de facto symbol of the reconquest and oppression of Christians. Today, the "Primitive Way" is the most challenging of all routes. It crosses the Cambrian mountains, with stunning views over the Picos de Europa, giving hikers the opportunity to live a pure hiking experience. The second part, in the Roman city of Lugo, is a quiet walk through forests and farmland, joining the French Way to Santiago de Compostela, in Melide.Show more

Length: 11.8 mi • Est. 7 h 1 m
This route is part of a multi week long walk, along the Camino Primitivo, also known as the Primitive Way or the Original Way. The Camino Primitivo was the first route to Santiago de Compostela, a pilgrimage journey that begins in Oviedo and goes west to Lugo and then south to Santiago de Compostela, joining the more popular Camino Frances in Melide. It is considered one of the toughest out of all the Camino routes, because of the many steep uphills and downhills. It can be done at a variety of paces and starting points. Legend has it that the remains of the Saint Apostle Santiago are buried there. Every spring and summer, many people follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.

#5 - Covadonga Lakes Trail
Picos de Europa National Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(5)
Length: 3.1 mi • Est. 1 h 43 m
The beautiful mountain lakes of Enol and Ercina are one of the main access points to the Picos de Europa, so can be quite crowded in high season - but this short loop with exquisite views takes you away from the crowds, through woodland and traditional settlements. Try to go on a clear day. If you happen to be there during high season (approx. July 1-Sept 15), you will have to park and catch the bus from Covadonga Sanctuary up to Lake Ercina. Outside of that timeframe you can drive straight up and park at Lake Ercina. There is a great restaurant at the start of the trail for food/beer/wine before or after the hike. The hike takes you along the right side of Lake Ercina and then up and over a pass. At around 1.2 miles the trail splits. Take the trail to the left marked Bosque Palomberu for a short jaunt through one of the most special forests you will ever visit. It feels as if Faeries will appear out of the lichen and moss covered rock outcroppings surrounding the gorgeous old trees. At 1.7 miles you go right on the road to lake Enol and at 2.3 miles take the path to the right which allows you to walk along the left side of Lake Enol. At 2.9 miles the stone path veers from the road and heads off to the right to take you up and over back to Lake Ercina.Show more
