Description

ASTURIAS FOOD TOUR

A food tour through Asturias is something unique, unrepeatable, and unforgettable. Asturias is not just a natural paradise; it is a gastronomic haven. We will enjoy the best cider houses in its two major cities, Oviedo and Gijón. We will visit authentic corn mills, guardians of the regional tradition around this cereal. We will explore the fantastic Afuega el Pitu. Following the cider tradition, we will partake in an “espicha” in a cider press in the most cider-centric area of Asturias, Villaviciosa.

Heading towards Lastres, where we will rest in a magnificent Hotel. We’ll visit the “Rula,” as the fish market is called in Asturias. We’ll tour a canning factory and craft our own anchovies, experiencing firsthand the intricacies of preparing anchovies, especially the delicate deboning process. A spectacular family picnic awaits us on the cliffs of the eastern Asturian coast.

Leaving the Cantabrian Sea behind, we’ll head to a spectacular hotel that will awe us with its views, making us feel like we’re in an authentic Asturian village. We’ll embark on a descent of the Sella River, or at least a portion of it, depending on our preferences. We’ll participate in the Campanu fishing, the first salmon of the season caught in Asturian rivers. We’ll accompany the best cheesemaker of Cabrales, along with his horse loaded with cheeses to cure at the highest peaks of the Picos de Europa. A spectacular hike awaits us, concluding in the cave where this delicacy is hidden.

We’ll visit Nacho Manzano at his magnificent family home, where we’ll be made to feel at Casa Marcial, with two Michelin stars, as one of the family. We’ll ascend to the spectacular lakes of Covadonga, where we’ll savor the best Gamoneu directly in the cave. Dare to join this journey that you won’t forget.

Opinions

Telmo

A 100% amazing tapas tour in Barcelona. We booked the Tapas Tour experience with this company, and it couldn't have gone better. They took us to places away from the crowded tourist areas, and all the bars we visited were very special and authentic. The quality of the tapas surprised us. What we liked the most was the guide; we ended up becoming friends and exchanging phone numbers. Highly recommended. 100%

Jose Manuel

Dale

We booked a private tapas tour and enjoyed every moment of it. Diego took excellent care of us, and we had the opportunity to sample exquisite tapas and wine. It was so fantastic that we also scheduled a winery visit with them. They took us to a magnificent bodega where we had a memorable tour with a guided tasting paired with a delicious lunch just for us.
