Superbe scenery, green waterholes, easy hike of 1h up to the final circular swimming pond. Across the river is a mirrador up on the ridge, accessible via the road to Vis.

We hiked to the Olla de San Vicente swimming hole along the crystal blue/green Rio Dobra. Freezing water, but amazing. A highlight of our trip!

Perfect place to have a walk with the dog...very accessible from the hotel and runs through to Cangis de Onis with what looked to be an easy track for walking longer distances.

It´s a beautiful clean river that flows down between mountains covered in green, It´s one of my favourite places in Asturias and should really keep it a secret :)

It is a flat walk, with just a few rocks to navigate along this beautiful river. Peaceful, easy to find, a short journey from Cangas de Onis and hugely worthwhile

A popular walk follows the river Dobra to a waterfall/swimming hole. It takes about 45 minutes each way. Parking can be quite difficult at busy times. The walk is pretty but no more than that and the pool while nice enough is nothing special. If...More
