One of the ways the people from Oviedo (Ovetense) like to spend their free time, is to hike, cycle or skate along a so-called ‘Senda Verde‘ (Green Route). Then, they want to relax and have a tasty, big warm lunch. This tour gives you the opportunity to be a real Ovetense by walking a 10k Senda Verde, relaxing in an 18th century Spa and enjoying a typical Asturian ‘Menu del Dia’!
We start in Parque de Invierno in the south of Oviedo. The route follows an old railway line, of which we’ll tell you more during our hike. The car-free road starts in the park but soon leads through the Asturian countryside with its cows and typical wooden ‘Horreos’. We also walk through some tunnels underneath the mountains and cross Asturias’ most important river, the Nalon.
During our hike we tell you more about the natural surroundings and history. With a bit of luck we’ll spot some vultures!
After 10k, we arrive at the Spa. Here you have the option to spend 2.5 hours in its warm water and saunas. Note that the entrance to the Spa is not included in the price of this tour! The price differs per day, and to avoid that you pay more than the entrance fee of that specific day, you will pay for your visit yourself (between 14 and 25 euros p.p).
After this, we’ll have a well-deserved Menu del Dia (three-course menu) in one of the village’s restaurants. Then, we will together take the bus back to Oviedo.
