About Us

Birding Picos de Europa is a birdwatching project located in The National Park of Picos de Europa (north of Spain) and its immediate surroundings.

From our lodge, in the outskirts of the small village of Llonín (Asturias. Spain), we have easy access to the most important birdwatchings places of the National Park and its sorroundings, from the cantabrian coast to the alpine zone.

An important fact in the National Park of Picos de Europa, is that, due to the reintroduction led by The Bearded Vulture Foundation (FCQ), since 2010, we can enjoy observing the Bearded Vulture, perhaps one of the most incredible and amazing birds in the Iberian Peninsula
