  • Among spectacular scenery in the Picos de Europa mountains
  • In the wildlife haven of the Valdeón Valley
  • Restaurant with terrace

Views to make your jaw drop and your eyes water are all around splendidly scenic Camping El Cares in Leon, for it's in the town of Santa Marina de Valdeón high 1,200 metres high up in the Picos de Europa mountain range, surrounded by mountains with spectacular beech forests blazing out a different landscape for every season.

The site is in the wildlife-laden Valdeón Valley for days out nature spotting, and has several mountain hikes directly from it; ask the team to point you in the right upwards direction. And as you might figure from the campsite name, the El Cares gorge is not very far from here.

Camping El Cares has a small shop, and a restaurant with a daily menu, tapas and a terrace from which to continue admiring the views. Amenities include a toilet and shower block as well as a coin-operated laundry.

Open from 24 March to 16 October
