On Spain's quiet north-west coast, the region of Asturias is the perfect place for a family adventure holiday. The 'Costa Verde' or green coast is reminiscent of the Cornish coast, with its steep sided river valleys running into sandy bays. We start this active Spanish holiday with a splash as we paddle our kayaks along the River Stella. Our first 3 nights are from our hotel base with swimming pool, in the pretty area of Arenas de Cabrales, in the foothills of the Picos de Europa. This is just 1 hr drive from Santander. On our third day we are in the water again, canyoning down one the charming gorges. A short walk of 3 - 4 hours then brings us to the mountain refuge where we stay overnight, a great introductory walk for the kids, and very exciting! The second half of the week we spend at a hotel near the beach. Here, we have a day cycling and a day to just enjoy the sea, with the option to have a surfing lesson! Northern Spain is quick, easy and cheap to get to from the UK (and a whole away from the overcrowded southern costas), making it altogether rather appealing for a family adventure holiday.
