TRANSPORT

The Picos de Europa is a destiny with places that are quite isolated,
having two main points of access to the area:
Oviedo (plane, bus, train) and Santander (plane, ferry, bus, train).

MOUNTAIN HUTS IN THE PICOS

The period when the mountain huts are open in the Picos depends on each hut warden, but in general, they open from Easter to the December bank holiday. However, there is always an accessible room with bunk beds and blankets for emergency situations.

WHERE TO EAT

There’s an extensive and varied gastronomic choice in the Picos de Europa, and the quality of products and ingredients used to prepare dishes stands out. There is a large variety of cheeses produced in the area due to the traditional farming activity, and is still an important aspect of the economy in the mountain areas. Among the most famous dishes are “fabada” (traditional bean stew with chorizo, black pudding, and belly pork), “fabes con almejes” (clam and bean stew), Asturian “pote” (bean stew with kale, potatoes, and belly pork), veal, “pitu de caleya” (free-range chicken), lamb, and kid goat.

Where can you enjoy this great food?

WEATHER

The characteristics of the Picos de Europa mean that there can be a stark change in weather from the valley bottoms to the top of the mountains where rain, snow, or frost is possible. One characteristic is their location on the northern side of the Cantabrian Mountains and their proximity to the sea, and further one is their altitude. Due to this, the predominant weather in the area is Cantabrian, with high levels of humidity and less sun. The low temperature average in the valleys is 4.3ºC, and the high temperature average is 22.3ºC. In the interior of the massif, minimum temperatures remain below zero from December to May. The region of Liébana is protected between the Cantabrian Mountains and the Picos, and therefore has more benign weather being milder and sunnier than other areas.

The predominant winds are NW Atlantic ones, that tend to bring rain and snow. The south-west wind blows in autumn, and clears the atmosphere. This is when some of the most amazing views can be seen in the Picos.

Precipitation levels are on average about 1 900 mm/year, but are higher in the Western Massif, where there are more heavy snowfalls. There’s an average of 193 days per year with rain, that is 53% of the year. Snow completely covers the massifs from December to May and snow/ice pockets can remain in sheltered places, even in summer. If snowfalls are intense in areas with steep slopes, there is a risk of avalanches.

The most characteristic weather phenomenon in the Picos is the mist or the “encainada”, as shepherds call it. It is very common in summer, which is why taking precautions in such a laberynth-type terrain is so important. It is not rare to have a splendid sun shining in the high areas of the Massifs while the mist is still in the valleys, covering them until well past midday

The following websites are the best to check weather in the Picos, but you must bear in mind that these mountains have two very different mountain aspects and many valleys, which is why a general weather forecast might not be accurate in all the areas.

WEBCAMS IN PICOS

You can check what the weather’s like in the National Park and its surroundings, in real time, with the 14 webcams that are distributed in different parts of the Picos de Europa.
