The Pices de Europa is very magnificent and truly impressive. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever encountered in my months in Spain. I have a complete joy inside after this.
You who follow me know how much I love the mountains. I would rather be up in the mountains than out on the coast. I feel more alive and creative when I have heights around me. Whether it is the thin air is not known 😉
My experiences here extend over many days.
Let’s start with a little practical
Here is a map. I have driven on the orange roads. And I have put a caravan there where I have spent the night – as there were no campers 😉 If you click on the different open Google maps with destinations for the accommodations. However, they are all found via the CamperContact app. The purple ones are free and the red ones are pay places.
Campsite with a pool
Lovely campingsite med pool
Free spot behind a supermarket
Free spot by a church and with horses
Lovely campsite inside the nationalpark. He speaks good English. And he can tell about the good hiking routes
A Stellplatz – fre empty and fill – no shower
I think it’s incredibly beautiful. And if you are into mountain driving, then I can highly recommend the experiences on these roads.
Above and below you can see a glimpse of the rides I have had. Of course, I do not drive that fast. It is recorded this way (Time Lapses)
Picos de Europa means Europe’s peaks are an area the size of Bornholm (an Island in Denmark).
The campsite in the middle
I just have to share a few video moods from here. A little wonderful gem with many opportunities if you hike, climb, etc. The owner of the campsite spoke super good English. And he had some good overviews of where to hike.
On-site there was also a restaurant where I got lamb. It was really good. However, I did not like the beer. Whether it’s because it’s forever since I’ve been drinking something, I have no idea 😉
Fuente Dé – a windy experience
I took a lane up here as I do not have the ankle to be able to walk up there. But I have to admit, I’m a big fan of those tracks so you can hike on from there. On this trip, it got extremely windy, so I went down again, to make sure they did not close it.
Below you see a mood video I cut together afterwards from my day up there 🙂

Overnight at the church and the horses
This place by the church, the horses and the lake was a place I came back to 3 times as the place gave me a feeling of great peace. I have slept there for a total of 4 nights and I have slept mostly alone there, but also had the company of 3 other carriages one night. The birdsong here is wonderful. And there are black kites and goose vultures flying around here too.
I want to move on. In approx. 3 weeks, then I return home to Denmark to give a speaks – and to see my family. Then I have a month to drive home. And I do not know the way yet 🙂
