Asturias is a land suitable for the enjoyment of all audiences, because the options for entertainment are multiplied almost to infinity and can be designed to suit the wishes and needs of the protagonists.
Moreover, with a particularity: the plans with children dazzle also the adults, to such an extent that they do not get tired of repeating them over and over again.
In fact, the Natural Paradise is one of those unique places, where family leisure is truly a plan that enchants each and every one of those who participate in it.
Sport, gastronomy, nature, landscape… are some of the attractions that Asturias offers you for the most suggestive experiences.
Therefore, activities with children will also be rewarding for you.
We propose plans with children to enjoy the outdoors, which will be unforgettable!
The Park of Life, a space to know the universe by land, sea and air
It’s an amazing place to be. Located in the council of Valdés, it is a different space where you will feel that you are unveiling some mysteries of the Planet Earth and the Cosmos in the course of a didactic and quiet walk.
The Park of Life is very green and full of surprises. For example, there are several rooms where you will explore the bottom of the oceans with unusual species such as giant squid, and others from the abyssal depths.
And from the bottom of the ocean, to the sky, to the planetarium. Or inside a spaceship, including an alien.
On your return to the Park of Life, you will find species in recovery, authentic pieces that belonged to spaceships, and even reptiles from different continents…
There is also a very vivid memory for scientists of the stature of Charles Darwin or Severo Ochoa, both deeply linked to research on the origin of life.
In short, the Parque de la Vida is much more than an educational classroom, or a museum. It is a place that will provide you not only with a pleasant moment of leisure, but also with an unforgettable and very productive experience to broaden your vision of our common home called planet Earth.
El Bosque, a zoo to suit you
What better than an experience in a lively garden to become aware of the environment in which we live? Indeed, a visit to the El Bosque zoo, very close to the city of Oviedo, specifically in San Esteban de las Cruces, will be one of those enlightening and happy moments for both adults and children.
The forest grew out of the love of nature of its drivers and continues to maintain that founding philosophy.
It is a universe animated by different species, which you will find familiar, small and manageable, and which is also conceived for a very humane approach to the environment, learning to respect and care for it.
Monkeys, tigers, snakes or a great variety of birds, among other species, populate a flowery garden of rich botany.
In short, a walk through the forest will make you feel like a true guardian of Panet Earth.
Tuernes el pequeño, a family dream
The Tuernes el pequeño zoo, located next to Posada de Llanera and only 15 kilometers from Oviedo, is a really healthy space, especially designed for children.
Tuernes offers the possibility of a different leisure time, in the middle of nature and getting to know the life of a farm, with the help of friendly hosts like Luis and Maxi.
Goose, duck, goat, emu, alpaca, Vietnamese pig, parakeet… These and many others make up a welcoming family with which children and adults socialize immediately, in a rural and natural environment of great beauty, in the heart of Asturias.
The route of Pepín, a walk through the village
And if you want to continue walking through the villages of Asturias, another magnificent and more than entertaining option is the Ruta de Pepín, an authentic rural adventure in the hands of the very same and genuine Pepín, from a fairytale place called Sirviella, in the council of Onís. In such a scenario, children enjoy the beauty of it, and the adults too.
This route includes four activities: a pleasant walk
Through the coves of Sirviella, and in passing an immersion in the rural and livestock world of the landscape and landscape of the Picos de Europa. Young and old will enjoy discovering the traditional Asturian architecture based on hórreos, paneras, bread ovens, houses with corridors, etc., as well as the products of the garden.
Obviously a visit to the cider mill is not missing, with a tasting of this drink included and a simple explanation about the art of making cider.
Once in the orchard, a replica of a shepherd’s hut like the ones you will find in the Picos de Europa, will show you the lifestyle of the people of this area, who dedicated their lives to cattle and to making one of the most famous cheeses in the world: the Gamonéu.
In addition, you will see in situ some native breeds such as the pita pinta, the asturcón and the oveya xalda.
As a finishing touch, the best flavours of traditional Asturian cuisine, carefully prepared by artisan and wise hands based on the excellence of a unique raw material.
