Camping Sella is located in Eastern Asturias, just five minutes from Arriondas, the geographical center of the region.
At the foot of the Sueve mountain range, Arriondas has become the point of departure to access the Picos de Europa, the Sanctuary of Covadonga, the coastal councils of Llanes and Ribadesella, and the interior towns of Cangas de Onís, Cabrales, Amieva, Ponga, Onis, etc.
Arriondas is also known for hosting the International Descent of the Sella, the International Ascent of Fitu (Fitu Rally), and for being one of the most important salmon capitals in Europe.
In addition, buses and trains are only 5 minutes away from the campsite.
We have a county hospital in the town itself, ideal for the unlikely event of an emergency.
Our campsite sits in the sports area next to Arriondas’ football field, the playground and the heated municipal swimming pool.
We knew that all of these were perfect conditions for our clients.
But, what we really fell in love with was the bathing area on the river inside the campsite itself.
And we were not mistaken.
Our customers love having direct access to a crystal clear spring like the Sella directly from their campsite!
Initially, only clients staying with us at the camping had access to the river.
But, over time, and seeing the success of other descent companies in the Sella, we decided to expand our offer and create our new business: Canoas La Chalana.
From that moment on, guests staying at our campsite were also able to practice canoeing without having to worry about logistics and travel.
Without even realizing it, the descent of the Sella became the star activity in the Picos de Europa region!
Today, whether you stay at Camping Sella or not, you can visit one of the most beautiful salmon rivers in Spain, always framed by the spectacular peaks of the Picos de Europa.
Four hours after getting into your canoe and receiving your introductory course, you will arrive at the Ria de Ribadesella, having passed picturesque villages, historical bridges and dense forests of chestnut, beech and oak trees.
You may even have decided to pause your descent to take a dip and enjoy the Asturian picnic we pack with all our love for you!
Can you imagine?
And, when you arrive in Ribadesella, our team awaits you to take you back to Camping Sella.
Yes, we offer everything you need to enjoy the wonderful surroundings of the Picos de Europa without having to spend a fortune: canoe with ergonomic foam seats, paddle, life jacket and wetsuit, insurance, parking …
Except for the bathing suit and the towels!
Arriondas is the capital of the council of Parres, a privileged area boasting beautiful rivers, mountains, peaks, extraordinary places such as the Mirador del Fitu, beech, oak and chestnut forests, unique native fauna, etc….
In other words, Camping Sella can be your point of departure to visit endless number of places of interest in Asturias.
Although, they have not always been first class, let’s be honest!
When we bought Camping Sella, now almost two decades ago, we had to invest a lot of time, money and energy, to provide our customers the kind of facilities we were to be proud of.
Today, at Camping Sella you will find:
