Van-Rouge goes to Picos de Europa

Van-Rouge goes to Picos de Europa using the Cork to Santander route from Brittany Ferries on the Connemara boat. A great trip over with flat calm seas. Only one hour to Potes where we spent our first night. The Picos de Europa are fantastic for walking and cycling.

Watch a short one minute video here of some of our trip
