This is probably the most beautiful Greenway in Spain. You’ll cross gorges, mountain canyons and impressive tunnels dug into rocks. Fall here is the season to die for. Children can enjoy the Casa del Oso, where a bear lives in semi freedom.

The GW of the Bear’s Path connects with the one of the Fuso, that reaches Oviedo through a natural path. And Oviedo can be reached by train.

 

You will go through small charming villages, where you can enjoy their unique cuisine and popular festivals, such as the Manzana, where you can taste their most authentic cider.
