About Gijón

·         Gijón is in the Autonomous Community (a.k.a. region) of Asturias (official name: Principado de Asturias). It is 30 km far away from Oviedo, the capital of Asturias.

 

·         Please, notice that in the local Asturian language, Gijón is written Xixón, so when looking for information on the web you may find Gijón/Xixón to refer to our town.

 

Getting to Gijón

·         You can get to Asturias by plane. You have to fly to The Airport of Asturias OVD, which is 45 km away from Gijón.

o   The price of a taxi from the airport to Gijón is 45 euros.

o   Instead, you can take a bus ALSA for 8 euros.

 

·         Nearby airports are an actual alternative when coming to Asturias. Maybe you can try to fly to Santander. There is a bus ALSA from the Airport of Santander to Gijón (~15 euros and 4 hours). Transfers from other airports usually involve going downtown to the city you have arrived at to get a bus or a train to Gijón.

 

 

 

 

·         You can also come by bus ALSA from almost all major towns in Spain. A promotional code is available upon request for assistants. Write to ehf2016.gijon@gmail.com for more information.

·         Train is also possible. Search the Renfe web page for more information. A promotional code is available upon request for assistants. Write to ehf2016.gijon@gmail.com for more information and a printable pdf.

 

Getting to the hotel

·         From the bus station ALSA to the hotel: walk to Plaza del Humedal and take a local bus EMTUSA.

·         From the train station to the hotel: there is a bus stop just outside the station.

 

·         Local bus: Line L10 to HOS Cabueñes leaves you next to the hotel. Lines L1, L14 or L18  leave you five minutes away  from the hotel.

 

·         In Gijón, to ride on a local bus, you must enter through the front door and pay 1.25 euros cash to the bus driver. To leave the bus, you must exit through the rear door.
