    Anyone sailing to the ports of Santander or Bilbao from the U.K. and intending to drive south through Spain, will probably be heading towards the town of Burgos. The route is over the Picos de Europa, the central part of the Cordillera Cantabrica, (the Cantabrian Mountains), the natural divisor of 'Green Spain' and the dryer central plateau.

    The scenery here is fantastic, with spectacular views from the high winding mountain roads. Rivers emerge from underground caves and gush through deep tree-lined gorges.The Picos de Europa is home to brown bears, Iberian wolves, chamois, ibex and the capercaillie,.... but you are unlikely to encounter any of them!

    Most U.K. sailings arrive early morning, so you should have plenty of time to appreciate the views, if your overnight stay is in Burgos. I've found that the best way to see Burgos is by the road train, which can be got outside the cathedral. It runs through the old district and heads up to the highest point, with great views over the town. Don't forget to look in the cathedral as well, if it is open.
