Hi! I am Debora, 34 years old and mother of 2 young girls. Throughout my life, I have been passionate about sharing the wonders of nature with others. After moving to Asturias with my Spanish husband in 2018, I started my own travel company intoAsturias. I guide tours about the Camino de Santiago and through the beautiful nature here in northern Spain, with the goal to let international visitors experience and explore Asturias.

An excellent alternative to the usual ‘dates and places’ walking tour. Debora is knowledgable and interesting. Very fluent in English (she is Dutch). Academic background in ecology and conservation. The focus of this tour on the Camino de Santiago, it’s history, and it’s influences on Oviedo made for an interesting starting point for our exploration of the city.
