About this trip


Join us on an epic trail running journey as we look to make a circumnavigation around the Picos de Europa in northern Spain.

You may have heard of the Picos de Europa, but few people have visited this spectacular National Park which dominates a 20km range in Spain’s northern reaches. 

Reached by just a short drive from Santander we set out to run the “Anillo” (Ring) which covers an immense circular trail throughout the National Park.

This trail run has everything and more: from rocky crests, gorges, lush valleys, vast glacial lakes, and leafy forests. There is no doubt that you won’t be amazed by what you find on our trail running journey.

Over the course of five days, we’ll experience the very best of what the Picos de Europa has to offer, by staying in high mountain refuges and covering rewarding daily distances, all the while by being surrounded by blissful lofty peaks.

We have selected this journey to begin on a Wednesday and to finish on a Sunday to make the most of a convenient direct flight from London Stansted, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Thankyou for a fantastic time. A well organised and unique trip seeing beautiful scenes - post card worthy, as well as being immersed into the culture and cuisine of Albania. Not forgetting the Albanian Raki! Great group of people on the trip, along with the local and UK guides. Looking forward to the next trip with Pure Trails!

Escapism from hectic London life, running some beautiful trails, with like minded individuals. The guys at pure trails are simply lovely, great organisation, whilst being relaxed, passionate & v knowledgable about running (but in a very humble & approachable way) what more could you ask for! Got my confidence back on the mountains, & ready to do more, thanks guys :)
