Walking in the Cordillera Cant?brica is a mountaineering guide to one of Spains premier ranges, and includes detailed descriptions for 60 routes spread around the whole of this magnificent mountain chain. Based on selected valley bases, the routes are readily accessed, thus minimising travel time. All of the routes can be done in a day and all are circular, whilst in difficulty they vary from straightforward, half-day outings to strenuous, full-day ascents demanding fitness, good overall mountain skills, and the ability to deal with short sections of scrambling.

This guide is complemented by articles on four specialist topics of interest to any who wish to know the range in greater depth: place-names, transhumance, the Civil War and alpine flora. The Cordillera Cant?brica is currently home to a total of nine protected areas, including three UNESCO Man and the Biosphere sites, and as such is the best-preserved continuous mountain area in Spain, together with the nearby Picos de Europa.
