Road Trip: Cueva de Valporquero

Hi chums!

On Saturday it was absolutely pouring, so what better way to spend it than inside a cave? :) 

As part of my university course in León, there are trips to various places and one of them included la Cueva de Valporquero. I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was hoping it wouldn't be anything like my caving experience I was forced to have on a school trip to Somerset (it was like being in the depths of hell).

Luckily this cave experience was a lot more chilled and was so pretty. We had a 2 hour tour in the cave and other than being freezing cold by the end, I really enjoyed it!

To get to la Cueva de Valporquero from León we got on a hired coach and drove up into the mountains. It probably took around an hour to get there but I accidentally fell asleep so it could have taken way less/more time. 

The creepiest part of the cave was the smiley 'fantasma' made out of clay.

At the end of the tour our guide turned off all the lights and made us be silent. I wasn't a huge fan of this idea but I survived!

After our tour we were supposed to head to Picos de Europa but after making it to Riaño (a really small town where there were literally no people when we arrived), we decided to head back to León because the weather was so bad!

All in all, it was a fun trip though and the cave was amazing!

Love as always,
