2/6  Asturias: Brown Bear and Iberian Wolf safaris

Take a low-impact look at Somiedo Natural Park in northern Spain. It’s a UNESCO World Biosphere, tucked into the beautiful Cantabrian Mountains, and one of the best places in Europe to spot wild Brown Bears and Iberian Wolves in spring and summer.

A full-day guided safari is fascinating for kids. Apart from the chance of spotting bears and wolves in their natural habitat – often with cubs – they’ll learn how to identify animal tracks, and signs of activity, find out about the park’s conservation work, and have time for a tour of the fascinating Somiedo Brown Bear House too.

  • Small size, hiking/driving safaris with local guides.
  • Eight hour day, with morning and afternoon observation tours.
  • Steiner and Nikon telescopes and binoculars for viewing.
  • Brown Bear and Iberian Wolf tours run during August and September.

Where: Somiedo Natural Park. One hour south of Asturias Airport, in north west Spain.

Cost: Under 14s £45. Adults £80
