The cable car at Fuente Dé shoots you up over 1000 metres to amazing lunar scenery high in the Picos. You can take a detour up to the highest refuge in the Picos through the rocky landscape to the Cabaña Veronica or just follow the winding tracks through the verdant and extensive Avila pastures before following paths through oak forests back down to Fuente Dé. The well-equipped hotel Refugio de Aliva on this route provides drink and lunch facilities in a stunning setting in the Aliva pastures.
