There is a steep and twisty road to the lakes with views from all sides, providing it isn't misty. Expect to dodge cars and cows on the roads there. We eventually broke through the mist to see the surrounding scenery including cows grazing on the...More

We investigated how to 'do' the lakes at the Tourist Information Office in Cangas de Onis. Contrary to other reviewers advice on TripAdvisor, apparently the road from Covadonga up to the lakes is closed to cars on Saturday and Sunday, as it is only open...More

Wonderful day out: the hike around the lakes itself is 8km, but enough paths around to extend this experience. You can drive up to Covadonga and you must take the bus from there (8€ per adult).

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.

Park your car as close to the Basilica & Cave as possible & catch the bus from there, (4-5 parking areas where they also sell your ticket to the bus), quite convinient.
