Between Astillero and Alceda runs the Via Verde del Pas: it´s a 43 kilometers bike road that takes advantage of the old and disappeared railway.
However we recommend the shorter version, the one which runs smoothly between Puente Viesgo and Alceda, with almost no slopes which makes it perfect and suitable for all levels and family cycling.
The Via Verde del Pas goes all over beautiful typical pasiego green meadows, deciduous and riparian forests: the historical heritage is also present in the form of world class prehistoric caves (Monte Castillo) and interesting examples of civil and religious architecture (historic buildings, collegiate, etc.). In short, a nice activity to visit in the best way one of the most emblematic and iconic valleys of Cantabria.
The bike rental (plus helmet, water bottle and repair kit), transportation and accident insurance are all included in the price.
