intoAsturias was founded in 2018 with the aim to introduce more people to the beautiful and varied nature in Asturias in the north of Spain. We do this by offering (multiple) day trips, thereby working together with local guides, nature organizations and sustainable overnight locations. This way we support local ecotourism initiatives.
My name is Debora Losa- de Block. From childhood I have a great passion for nature. I have been active at the World Wildlife Fund from a young age, first as a youth member and later as a volunteer. It was therefore no surprise that I started studying Forest and Nature Management and then International Land and Water Management. During my studies I have been involved in the protection of sea turtles in Greece and conservation of mangrove forests in Indonesia. In May 2018 I completed my doctoral research at Wageningen University in which I studied projects where nature is used to adapt to climate change.
During my research I met my Spanish husband Marcos Losa Torviso who quickly took me to his birthplace Asturias in the north of Spain. For me it was a great surprise to discover such a green piece of Spain, with a beautiful coast and high mountains at a very short distance from each other! In the years that followed, our desire grew to move to Asturias. After the birth of our daughter Esther, we took the step and we embarked on the adventure. Together we are busy setting up intoAsturias and in this way let more people experience the beautiful nature and discover Asturias!
