This break is run in conjunction with our Wildlife tour to the same destination. By sharing the transport costs we are able to create a viable holiday.
Our hotel is the 4* Mirador de la Franca which sits on a secluded beach at Ribadedeva in the Province of Asturias. The main feature of this region is its magnificent scenery ranging from sandy beaches and rugged coves on its superb coastline to rolling fields of maize and apple orchards which stretch into the Picos de Europa, the western end of the Pyrenees mountain chain. Woods and forests compete with tumbling streams and larger rivers for your attention and the absence of crowds enhances the experience. The 4* hotel sits on a secluded beach and you have the choice of chilling out on this beach or joining the excursions where we will make alternative arrangements for non-Wildlifers.
You’ll travel with the Wildlife group throughout though you will part with them at certain stages as they go off to search for the local wildlife.
If you prefer, you can stay at the hotel and enjoy the beach and the local area and miss the excursions entirely. Visit the Asturias Wildlife page for the precise details of the excursions.
On the final day we will all travel to Llanes together and the Wildlife group will drop the rest in the port and go off and do their thing. You'll have a couple of hours to stroll around this pleasant resort and fishing port and take some refreshment before we resume our drive to Santander and the 1545 sailing to England.
