All about the trip
Join us for a day tour to famous caves of “El Castillo” and “Las Monedas” in Puente Viesgo and to enjoy a one-hour cycling tour on an electric bike across the green route of "la Via Verde del Pas" in the afternoon.
We will leave Santander towards Puente Viesgo, a beautiful small village next to El Castillo mount. It has four caves with Paleolithic art. We will visit two of them. Both of them had been declared World Heritage by Unesco since 2008. We will visit "El Castillo Cave" which is the largest cave and contains the oldest paintings in the world dated at least 40 800 years and "Las Monedas Cave". This cave contains designs drawn by charcoal about 12 000 years ago and has an important geologic value due to its inside geological formations.
Afterwards, we will spend some time visiting Puente Viesgo. From this place, we start our e-bike tour along the route of Via Verde del Pas. This green path is in fact an old railway path that has been transformed into this pedestrian/bike path. The ride is totally flat so it is suitable for all ages and even recommended for families.
Along the route, you will enjoy a green landscape and you will cross some bridges and rivers of spectacular beauty. If you want, you can bring a picnic and we can even have lunch in the countryside.
We will finish our bike tour in Ontaneda from where we will continue towards the incredible "Pasiegos Valleys" up to the "Mirador de la Braguía". Expect lovely views of the area!What Wikipedia Says
