Walking with Dinosaurs in Asturias

Are your curious to learn more about the presence of dinosaurs in Asturias? Do you literally want to step into their footprints? And would you like to enjoy a plate of fresh seafood in one of Asturias’ most picturesque fishing villages? Then join our tour ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’!

The coast between Gijon and Ribadesella in Asturias is also called ‘Dinosaur Coast’. This is because of the presence of many original dinosaur footprints and fossil bones from dinosaurs and other Jurassic reptiles. During this tour we will visit the Jurassic Museum of Asturias, where we will learn everything about Jurassic reptiles and dinosaurs in Asturias. We will also search for original dinosaur footprints during a short walk along the beautiful coast. Finally, we’ll have lunch in beautiful Llastres.

The tour starts in the village of Colunga. Here we will visit the Jurassic Museum of Asturias (MUJA), where we learn everything about the presence of dinosaurs in Asturias. The museum is build in the shape of a dinosaur footprint and located on top of a hill overlooking the Cantabrian Sea. Dinosaurs ‘live’ in the garden around the museum, making this a fun tour for children. We guide you through the permanent exhibition of the museum. Alternatively, you can choose to do a self-guided audio tour (available in English, French and German).

From the museum we will go to La Griega beach. Here we will take a short walk along the cliffs to search for dinosaur footprints. These sauropods footprints are among the largest in the world!

Finally, we will go to nearby LLastres, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Asturias. After a short stroll through the harbor we will enjoy a fresh seafood dish with amazing views over the Cantabrian sea.
