If you like to walk, just two km away is the recreational area “El Llanu Miyar”, near Demués. And from the nearby town of Gamonedo, origin of the Denomination of the cheese that bears his name, leave several routes. One of them leads in an hour and a half to Lake Ercina so it is an alternative to buses that go up to the Lakes.
Hiking and trekking
Recommended walking route from the Hotel: Climb to Los Lagos de Covadonga by the old path of the shepherds of the port, where Gamoneu cheese is made.
This is the way that the pastors of Onís use to raise the cattle to the pastures of the port. And it is there where they make Gamoneu cheese, with denomination of origin and later they cure it in the caves.
