The Os Ancares mountain range is one of the places in Galicia whose beauty most surprises us. It is located in the east of the province of Lugo, on the border with the neighbouring autonomous communities of Castilla-León and the Principality of Asturias.
Throughout the length and breadth of its more than 50,000 hectares, an infinite network of paths crosses deep valleys and rises up to 2,000-metre-high peaks. In winter this area is covered with snow. When spring comes, the water from the thaw flows down the peaks to the low areas, creating many streams and small waterfalls. The mountain attains full splendour until the end of summer. In autumn the plant covering takes on reddish hues.
In times past, the remote mountains of Os Ancares served as habitat for the last community of bears in Galicia. The implementation of a complex programme to recover the species has meant that the first specimens are beginning to be seen in this area. Other species we can find on our trip through the mountain range are boar, deer, rabbits, owls, foxes, wildcats and squirrels.
