Lake Covadonga, Cangas de Onis

(4.7/5 based on 2,200+ 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.

  • Already had gone above is precious. The view is incredible. I never tire of seeing it. The bad thing that hurts the ears a little by altitude

  • Went in summer, a little frightened by the influx of visitors in that time of the year. In the end we decided to make the visit after eating, went first to Covadonga and then got on the Lakes. In summer during the day only can go up the buses, but from the 20 open road and you can go by car, by being so long days arrive in time to fully enjoy the landscape

  • Amazing place that is located 12 km from Covadonga, a beautiful climb with several viewpoints: lettuce, that of the Queen, a measure that you are going to climb you'll realizing the beauty of this place, the final part you find Lake enol (majestic and large) and if it is a little more reach the Lake ercina, a little smaller but equally beautiful and surrounded by the massif of picos de Europa It is a place to enjoy nature in its pure State, a place to and return, wishing to return soon and enjoy again of Covadonga and the surrounding area.
