The hiking tour to Lago del Valle runs through the best-known valley of Somiedo. Here you can see curious geological formations, local flora and fauna and some of the most beautiful landscapes in Asturias: would you like to come with us?
Once we have met our guide and companions, we only need to start walking: let’s go! First kilometers of the route take us into a landscape with a great cultural value: the old farmlands and crops where today green meadows, separated by dry stone walls survive.
When we reach the end of this valley, we begin the slight but constant climb, which will allow us to go up the glacial moraines, feel the most present forest and enter the “kingdom of the brown bear” (and we have not yet reached the middle point of the route! !). With a little more effort we will reach the Lake of the Valley, the largest in Asturias, located in a setting of great beauty, where the mountains are the protagonists.
This is the ideal place to enjoy a snack and take pictures. After regaining strength and hydration, we will return to the starting point along a different path that will offer us new points of view and new sensations.
