Lake Covadonga, Cangas de Onis
(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Set in Spain’s oldest national park amongst mountains and green meadows lies Lake Covadonga, which is in fact two lakes. The first is Lake Enol, 1,070 m (3,510 ft) above sea level. Walk around the lake and look for free-roaming cows. Then set off to Lake Ercina, 1,108 m (3,635 ft) above sea level. Ambitious walkers can explore further from here, accessing more remote areas of the park. Refuel and rest weary legs in the cafe at this lake. Cars are not permitted to drive up to the lakes in the height of the tourist season, but a bus is available. Outside of tourist season, nervous drivers should opt for a tour bus or taxi, as the road is very winding and can get misty. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lake Covadonga and many more Cangas de Onis attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cangas de Onis trip generator.

  • We were lucky to see the totally clear lakes, mist was lower. It is a beautiful place certainly worth that zoom in for a ride. We climbed in the car and upon reaching the lake bottom could not Park, so we try to upload to the above but only allowed to upload to the taxis and buses of organized tours. In the end we realized that passing these vehicles left to enter two or three cars later, which seize the moment where he climbed a few taxis to "slip". Finally, not understood what relied to letting go a people and other not, but managed to arrive by car to the Lake above and do not repent anything, because it is a special place.

  • The road that becomes is simply spectacular, while for the driver to enjoy the view, you'll have to stop in any of the belvederes. There are buses that take you from the surrounding villages. To get the best is accompanying the day, since on bad days then low fog.
