A sensational drive through Hoces de Bejo

Hoces de Bejo is the name of a very scenic drive running through an incredible landscape located in the autonomous community of Cantabria, in Northern Spain. It’s one of the most scenic canyon roads of Spain.

Hoces de Bejo

The scenic and narrow road is totally paved running through Hoces de Bejo, also known as Peña Bejo or Caos de Bejo, an imposing gorge created by the karst erosion of the waters of Nansa river. The road is called CA-281. It’s a very challenging road featuring a high risk of rock slides.

The road is 7.9km (4.90 miles) long, running from La Laguna to La Lastra. The drive is extremely challenging due its narrowness but very scenic, with stunning views. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.

Tucked away in the Sierras del Cordel y Cabeceras del Saja y Nansa, within the Cantabrian Mountain Range, the road was completed in 1910, although it had to be modified in 1950 due the construction of Cohilla reservoir.
