There will be around 30 kids and volunteers will be creating games, workshops and activities for them in English so they can practice and learn the language in an informal way instead of school teaching.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The town of Riaño is located in the heart of the Cantabrian Mountains in the historic Montaña de Riaño region. A fairly extensive space that has been protected under the figure of the Montaña de Riaño y Mampodre Regional Park, the prelude to the well-known Picos de Europa National Park. An impressive natural space covered by the dammed waters of the Esla and Yuso rivers. Riaño has been a municipality marked by the great environmental catastrophe caused by the construction of the reservoir. Although Riaño did not completely disappear, a large part of the old town remains submerged. In spite of everything, it has many incentives to dedicate an in-depth visit to it to see the uniqueness and beauty of the area. There is a Hermitage of Nuestra Señora del Rosario next to which rests the so-called most beautiful bench in León because of this natural viewpoint. The visit will then take us along the so-called Paseo del Recuerdo. A one kilometer long pedestrian path that runs along the edge of the swamp. The most beautiful viewpoint are outside the village: Las Hazas viewpoint and the Valcayo viewpoint. It is a very short and spectacular road. One of the best panoramic views in the area. There are many hiking trails that can be done in the area, but one of the most emblematic is the ascent to Pico Gilbo (1679 meters). It´s also recommended the ascent to Pico Yordás. The views are also wonderful but the slope is somewhat greater. And, finally, you have another of the most mythical ascents at the top of Peñas Pintas. Same, although it lacks great technical difficulties, the route requires quite a bit of effort. The privileged situation of Riaño makes it a fantastic point from which to make wonderful excursions in the surrounding area: Macizo de Mampodre y Valle de Valdeburón, Lois y la catedral de la Montaña, Valle de Sajambre y otros.
