Only authorised vehicles are allowed to enter the park after 8.30 am, so catch the bus from Cangas de Oñís. It costs about €9 for the day and stops at the church and then at the lakes. There is a short walking route on a paved track and a longer walking route around both lakes. Be careful not to go the wrong way, we did and ended up on a different route, meaning we walked for four and a half hours instead of three and a half hours! It is a medium difficulty walk that involves some rocky mountain path. There are plenty of beautiful views to enjoy. Wear proper boots or trainers, take water with you.

Took the 10 euro taxi tour from the village up the mountain to the lakes, around 1 1/2 hours. Wonderful vistas and superb mountain air

I love Asturias! It's exactly how I imagined. Very beautiful nature, lakes and mountains. Covadonga lakes are bringing it all.

During our stay in the Picos this was the tour I was most looking forward to, but which was the biggest deception at the same time. In high season you cannot drive entirely to the Covadonga lakes, you have to leave your car in one of the 4 official parkings and take the public bus from there. Obviously, most people drive as high up as possible and leave the car at Parking 4. This also means a long queue plus, since the bus comes from further away, there is no guarantee you have a seat right away. That was the first mistake - leaving the car further down would have been a far better option. The bus ride was ok. Upon arriving to the lakes we were confronted with the hundreds of people that were there. Whichever hike you are choosing, you are walking with crowds. Luckily, many visitors decided to picnic at Lake Ericina, so the more we moved away, the less people we saw. But still, compared to other hikes we did in the Picos (Cosgaya, Brez, La Molina, Minas de Altaiz, Sotres) this was the most touristic experience. Other than that, scenery is nice, but nothing special compared to other Picos destinations. You have quite some hiking options if you are looking for an easy stroll: Option 1: pass by Ercina lake till Invernales de La Redondiella, then back via Belbín (7,4km, 100m elevation diff.) Option 2: Mirador del Rey and back (7km) Option 3: walk between the lakes. This is what we went for. We started at Mirador Entrelagos, then lake Ercina and climbing up the rocks. We had a picnic there. Then on through a Jurassic park-like scenery and finally back via a larga track to lake Enol. On the return, we had over an hour waiting time for the bus.

A must visit! Spectacular area for hiking, photoshooting, landscape view. If you get a nice sunny day as we did it is even more spectacular
