Holiday Information

The Asturian coast of the ‘Costa Cantabrica’ is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. While the rest of Spain is being baked in the sweltering summer heat this north Atlantic coastline known as the ‘Costa Verde’ has the perfect climate for an active family holiday. Think Great British summers with water warm enough to have a good swim in, pristine, fine-sand beaches, deserted coves, cliffs and rock pools full of interesting sea creatures for the kids to explore, backed by Europe’s only true maritime mountain range; the majestic Picos de Europa.
This spectacular coastline is broken up by pretty, traditional fishing villages and towns where folk still look towards the crashing Atlantic for their living. The bustling bars serve up an exciting array of the daily catch with lashings of Asturian culinary tradition, swilled down with local dry cider (or plonk if you prefer). Remember the Spanish do everything with their children, they are welcome in bars and restaurants making for a much more sociable and smoother time for everyone. 

Fully guided, this is a great trip for families who want to cycle with other families; a perfect opportunity for kids and adults alike to have a fun, sociable week out on your bikes. Along the way there is also a chance for the family to take a surf lesson with a professional instructor in the Atlantic breakers!

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

The ride is aimed at the active family that do a bit of cycling and like to explore, as we travel on an undulating route through some of Europe’s most stunning coastal scenery. We will ride along purpose-built, ‘off road’ cycle paths and quiet country lanes, through pastures, vast forests and across river valleys, heading west, at times as we follow the ancient pilgrims trail the ’Camino de Santiago’. Fully guided, your support vehicle will never be too far away if any of the party need to put their feet up for a while. For the surfing lesson you will be under the guidance of qualified instructors but everyone taking part needs to be a confident swimmer.
