Along Spain’s Costa Verde (‘Green Coast’), lush hills and pastureland tumble down to grassy cliffs which frame secluded beaches of virgin sand, sweeping bays and enticing fishing ports. Behind all this lies the Picos de Europa mountain range, wild and remote with its jagged limestone peaks. Somewhere in between meanders the FEVE, a narrow-gauge railway whose trains chug faithfully along, making measured and staccato progress through a bucolic and astonishingly green landscape as they gather and disgorge locals and commuters, providing the perfect means of transport for the curious and insouciant traveller.
