  • Make the Cares route, enjoying the mountains and ride taking the River Cares, is worth. That yes there are that do leisurely route although it costs a bit more time and so you can enjoy landscapes so beautiful there and of course in the end in the village of Poncebos eat a good fabada.

  • It is a beautiful route, but since it is an affordable way for "non-mountaineers", it tends to be a bit saturated with people. Both car parks and the route itself. Moreover, it is a wonderful way. They are about 23 ida kms and turn, and it is almost impossible to get lost or disorientated. Ideal for people with some resistance walking but do not dare with the mountain. An easy road and insurance (if you are careful and do not nonsense) and a unique landscape

  • Years that had been waiting for this occasion and I used it to the fullest. Spectacular route for everything in general. The environment, unparalleled, but the story of how it was and why it still makes you enjoy more of the road. We did the tour of back and forth about 25 km, but everywhere I have read that it is a path suitable for all kinds of people for being practically plain, I have to say that it is a fairly physical path, that non-technical. It has a first rise of 2 km durillo, which go up 500 m of altitude. And while it is true that it is then almost all plain, it has lot of stone and of course long ravine so you need to take extra precautions. In short to enjoy it whenever you can.
