Cantabria has a surface of 5,300 km² and offers a huge variety of landscapes and climates. In the mountain ranges of Picos de Europa and the natural preserve of Saja, bears, wolves and eagles live in the wild and salmons and trouts populate the rivers. The Pico de tres Mares ('peak of the three seas') is a geographical curiosity: a drop of water that falls here may equally end up in the Atlantic Ocean via the Duero river, the Cantabric Sea through the Nansa river, or the Mediterranean Sea by the Ebro river.

The Cantabrian coast boasts beautiful bays and romantic fishing villages. More inland are green valleys and hills.

Cantabria's capital of Santander is situated on a beautiful bay. Not far from the capital are the medieval town Santillana del Mar and the prehistoric caves of Altamira. Other sights in the vicinity include the Iglesia de Santa Maria de Valverde and the Parque Nacional de Cabarceno, where you will find animals from five continents in an outstanding and singular landscape.

Cantabria's colorful popular customs, artisany and gastronomy make it a destination that certainly won't disappoint many travelers.
