8 Plans for a Holy Week of Trails and Mountains

 

The Holy Week is a time of deep-rooted and historical traditions, of culture and processions, it is a time of typical sweets, of passion and feeling, but why not, it can also be a time of nature, of wild and steep mountains, of impressive places all of them crossed by old routes loaded with their own history that have arrived until our days turned into real temples for trekking.

 

Without a doubt, there are countless options that come to mind when writing this article, and it is an arduous task to summarize them in 8 Plans for a Holy Week of Trails and Mountains. The route of Los Calderones and Hoces del Turia in the Valencian Community, the one that runs along the Borosa River in Andalusia, AigüesTortes and Lake San Mauricio in Catalonia, the Lagunas de Ruidera National Park in Castilla La Mancha, the Route of the Volcanoes in the Canary Islands and so many other magnificent places and paths with which to share the Easter processions.

Extremadura treasures true natural jewels that come to add to the rich architectural and cultural heritage it possesses. Monfragüe, Los Barruecos and so many other places, each with its special singularities, offer the nature lover a true earthly paradise.

Route of the Alba

Route oh the Alba

 

Muniellos, the Natural Park of Somiedo, the one of the Ubiñas and La Mesa, the one of Ponga, the Picos de Europa or the Natural Park of Redes, where we find this indispensable trekking route, are a small sample of how much the Principality of Asturias can offer us. Noisy routes along the coast await us, such as the Jesters of Arenillas, steep itineraries through rugged congosts, such as the Route of the Xanas or surprising walks through a huge natural cavity, such as the The Cuevona of Cuevas del Agua.

Painted Oma Forest

Painted Oma Forest

 

It is more common than it may seem to us to travel routes that combine nature and culture when visiting these, old hermitages, impregnable castles or solitary monasteries. But to make a route of senderismo while we visited an authentic pictorial museum outdoors, whose linens are the same trees that surround to us and the different rooms that compose it are the slopes from the mountain where it is, does not seem so simple. Euskadi accumulates nature and fondness to the mountains almost by equal parts, a whole world of possibilities.

Birth of the Asón River

Birth of the Asón River

 

Cantabria, like the slogan that defines it, infinite, surprises us with countless possibilities and spectacular places. As pilgrims, we can walk the Lebaniego Way, from the coast to the very heart of the Picos de Europa, crossing the narrow Hermida Gorge, entering some of its impressive caves, such as Covalanas o Cullalvera or approaching the base of the great waterfall through which the Asón River flows after its source in the heart of the Collados del Asón Natural Park...

Path of the Big Lagoon

Path of the Big Lagoon

 

Many myths and legends come to add to the attraction that the majestic Mountain Range of Gredos already has, giving it that special atmosphere that great mountains usually have. Legends such as that of La Serrana de la Vera, a woman who seems to be waiting for us submerged in the depths of the Big Lagoon. In the Circo de Gredos, we will find a place as inhospitable as it is beautiful, composed not only of the mysterious lagoon, but also of the vertical and rugged mountains that surround it, known in the mountain world as El Calderón de Gredos.

Ascent to Oroel Rock

Ascent to Oroel Rock

 

Mountains of more than 3,000 m, crystalline water pools, deep valleys and ravines furrowed by raging rivers, quiet and welcoming high plateaus, The Pyrenees sare an inexhaustible source of possibilities for nature lovers.  Contemplating them with perspective, enjoying them as far as the eye can see from the privileged balconies that overlook them, is something we can do for example in Oroel Rock, with locations like Jaca at our feet and the distinguished proximity of emblematic places like the Monastery of San Juan de la Peña.

Foz of Lumbier

Foz of Lumbier

 

Since immemorial times, man has feared and respected the force of nature, but he has also known how to take advantage of the resources it put within his reach and the tireless work it does. Work that has resulted in abrupt landscapes carved by the force of water. Landscapes such as the Foz of Burgui, the Foz of Arbayún or the Foz of Lumbier, is the last one crossed by an ancestral road that was used as a railroad and that has recovered part of its old splendor.
