Asturias – staff visit rewarded with Cantabrian Brown Bear sighting

Brown Bear, Asturias

Brown Bear, Asturias 

Over two weekends in mid-September, Naturetrek staff were guests of Turismo Asturias, scouting out the wildlife potential of the region following the inauguration of three new direct daily flights from the UK to Oviedo.

Highlights of our visits included sightings of Cantabrian Brown Bear (see video below), Iberian Wolf and Wildcat! The region boasts wonderful scenery, gastronomy and hospitality, exciting wildlife and panoramic montane and coastal vistas.

Two expert local bilingual guides now open up the possibility of a Naturetrek tailormade holiday to the region (please contact georgie@naturetrek.co.uk for details) and we also offer a group tour based in a delightful village hotel deep within Somiedo Natural Park.
