We caught the bus up from Covandonga (you can’t drive up in summer). The mist had begun to descend when we arrived so the views weren’t quite what they might have been, but it was still very pretty. At €9 per person for a short...More

The lakes were completely covered in low lying fog on my trip which only added to the air of magic and mysticism. I still hiked through the hills and enjoyed the green fields gentle sounds of cow bells ringing in the mist. A unique place...More

Hello Natasha! I don’t know about the shuttle times because I went up to the Lakes on my bike, but I highly recommend you stay at the Parador in Cangas de Onis, It’s beautiful place.
