A number of excursions can be organised directly from the hotel, including trips to Gijon and the coast, the Picos de Europa and the Covadonga Lakes, nature and wildlife reserves.
Castillo Bosque de la Zoreda hosts a fine restaurant, the Arlos, where the chef and his team create delicious menus based on the traditional cuisine of Asturias with modern touches of inventiveness and the accent on the finest local produce.
