Asturias Wildlife Tours
Geoface is a small local company based in Asturian countryside, half way between the prominent mountain ranges and the coastal areas. We support environmental and social responsibility and believe tourism is the way to knowledge, fun time and healthy practices.
Geoface focuses on our iconic local flora and fauna through the guided wildlife tours in Asturias. One day, a weekend or either even a week to explore the national and natural parks in search of brown bear (Ursus arctos), wildcat (Felis silvestris), wallcreeper (Tichodroma muraria), lammergeier (Gypaetus barbatus), alpine accentor (Prunella collaris), egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus) as well as orchids (pyramidalis, maculata, mascula) and butterflies (Hesperiidae, Papilonidae, Pieridae, Nyphalidae, Lycaenidae).
Spain has created a Responsible Tourism seal for businesses to demonstrate they have followed official guidelines for reducing the spread of Covid-19, of which Geoface has secured this important accreditation.
Natural and cultural landscapes interpretations are also available. Always guided by a Principality of Asturias licensed official guide.
Nature in Asturias is well represented by deep deciduous forests and rugged mountains but the ocean-atmosphere interaction too. However, although many people know Asturias as “Natural paradise” our home land is actually more a farming area than anything else. Animals (brown bear population -for instance- is local, not reintroduced) plants and humans have coexisted for thousands of years therefore our natural heritage really needs a cultural approach.
Geoface support a cultural conservation of the Asturian natural environment in different ways. One of our biggest efforts is supporting local beekeepers, mainly at the countryside but outside protected areas, where usually nobody watch at neither care about. Concerning the bees and its important role as pollinators GEOFACE is involved in fighting against plagues as the Asian wasp (Vespa velutina) and helping local producers in order to be adapted to the clima change.
Knowledge and information are a corner stone for preservation so GEOFACE offers a wide range of scientific/research tourism activities focused in territory issues with two main goals: repopulation of abandoned areas and wild fires prevention.
