Butterflies of Asturias Trip

Every spring and after a complicated biological process the different butterflies of Asturias species start to deploy their wings and proboscis in an amazing performance for survival. These beautiful, colourful and fragile Lepidoptera are spread all over the Asturian territory, all the way from the seashores to the highest summits of the Cantabric  Mountains. Flying or gliding, they are joyful to see while reminding us of their role as key elements in the environmental complexity of Asturias’ ecological niches.

Alternative name: Butterflies Of Asturias Trip
Day 1
Full Day Trip

Asturias is home of more than half of the total amount of butterfly species that occur in Spain outside Canary islands. Some of them are common throughout the whole region (Colia crocea, Pieris napi) but some others are quite rare as Maculinea nausithous or Boloria eunomia. Their distribution is highly dependent on some specific natural factors as geological substrate, thermic conditions or even plant life. Picos de Europa holds few populations of Heteropterus morpheus, Erebia gorge or Lopinga achine among others.
