No doubt: Spain is much more than sun and beach. In fact, it offers also a wide range of rural tourism locations which are an excellent alternative to spend a few days getting closer to the nature and the delicious Spanish gastronomy.
A great example of this is the picturesque region of Asturias. Whether you travel alone, with your partner, your family or in a group, Asturias has always something to offer. Walk through the "enchanted forests" of Los Picos de Europa, canoe down the Sella River, or enjoy the “Cider Festivals” that turn small Asturian villages into one non-stop fiesta. And if you want all together, don’t miss this funny deal from Hoteles La Pasera, a charming small hotel chain located between the village of Cangas de Onís and the famous lakes of Covadonga. They will even offer you a fabada tasting, a rich bean stew and one of the most famous dishes of the Spanish cuisine that will give you the energy to fully experience this amazing region.
The nearest airport is Oviedo.
