FAMILY TOURISM IN CANGAS DE ONÍS AND SURROUNDINGS

Whether it’s trekking on horseback through exotic forests, canoeing in the Sella, enjoying long days on the most spectacular or remote beaches, or discovering thematic museums designed especially for children, those who travel as a family to La Cepada will have only one concern: which adventure to choose each day.

Cantabrian Sea

Our exceptional surroundings offer several attractive possibilities, starting with an extensive coastline full of secret nooks and alcoves where the children will enjoy the sea, sand, and unparalleled beauty of the Asturian beaches, where the rock formations draw whimsical shapes, creating new hiding places that will stir up the little ones’ imagination. Just 20 km from the hotel, the Cantabrian Sea offers you so much to guarantee your children’s enjoyment.

"Olla de San Vicente"

Those who prefer to venture riverwards could find no better option than the river Sella. The Dobra is a tributary of the Sella, and it passes through Cangas de Onís, its crystalline waters forming a natural lake, the Olla de San Vicente, an ideal place to visit and reward yourself with a refreshing dip. To navigate down the Sella by canoe will also turn any summer day in this area of Eastern Asturias into an unforgettable experience.

Walking trails

Discovering the green paradise around the hotel will be another foolproof plan for the whole family. You can either go on foot, using some of the hundreds of trails in the area, by bike, or, why not even try trekking on horseback with one of the many companies in the area that will provide you with the most docile and quietest animals? These are suitable even for those who have never ridden before – visitors of any age will love this experience!

Picos de Europa

The Picos de Europa is also a unique setting for children to enjoy some quite unforgettable days. Covadonga, the Enol and Cabrales lakes, or the ascent to Bulnes on its funicular railway will be a real adventure. The most daring children can even negotiate them on quads, or even in snowshoes in the winter.

Jurassic Museum of Asturias

There are still more activities to immerse yourselves in nature: families can choose to spend a day visiting the MUJA (Jurassic Museum of Asturias), learning how to do caving or canyoning as a family, discovering stories about our ancestors in the Tito Bustillo Cave in Ribadesella, being amazed by the rich local mythology following the 'Camín Encantau' route, or visiting the Avin Cave (Glacial Fauna Museum).
