Lake Covadonga, Cangas de Onis

#1 of 331 in Things to do in Asturias
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • The drive up can take a while because it is this tiny road full of curves but IT IS SO WORTH IT!! This is absolutely gorgeous. One of the most beautiful spots in all of Spain.  more »
