The Saja-Besaya Natural Park is a dreamland of ferny forests that bloom with innumerable colors and tasty wild mushrooms during the autumn. This part of Cantabria is truly beautiful and I make a point of visiting whenever I can.
I like visiting in autumn because I practically have the forest to myself. To walk alone on the trails amid the mossy elms and chestnuts to the sound of the river is a real luxury. It’s the perfect escape! The whole region is lovely, and you should also try to visit the mountain villages.
