1. From Oviedo: Covadonga Lakes and Cangas de Onís Bus Day Trip

Explore the natural beauty of Spain on a guided day trip from Oviedo in a comfortable and air-conditioned bus. Travel to a viewpoint overlooking the lakes of Covadonga, dive into local history at the Basilica of Covadonga, and stop to purchase lunch in Cangas de Onís. Meet your guide in centrally-located meeting point in Oviedo. Sit back and relax on a spacious bus on the ride to the Entrelagos viewpoint to enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the Ercina and Enol lakes. Learn details about the Picos de Europa National Park from your guide.  Continue to the Basilica of Covadonga, which was built between 1877 and 1901 in the neo-Romanesque style. Hear about the origin of Don Pelayo and the beginning of the time of reconquest, a story that every Asturian boasts about.  Find out where the expression "Asturias is Spain and the rest is conquered land" comes from. See the cave of the Virgin of Covadonga, where the tomb of King Pelayo is located. Admire the wooden Virgin Mary statue which holds a child and a golden rose. Stop for lunch in Cangas de Onís, a city full of typical Asturian food establishments where you can buy a refreshing local cider. Enjoy the Asturian drink to the fullest, without worrying about driving. Have two hours of free time to eat or explore the local area on your own. Get recommendations on sites to see like the Roman bridge which dates back to the High Middle Ages. Return to the meeting point in Oviedo early in the evening.

What people are saying about Oviedo

First of all, I clearly booked an English speaking tour. It was not an English speaking tour. Initially, this made me quite upset. But the tour guide tried to help me as much as possible and it worked out well. The tour was amazing. Very beautiful. Would have liked a little more time at Covadonga. I highly recommend this tour. But it would help if you spoke Spanish.

Magnificent excursion. Miguel...our very attentive guide...and the phenomenal driver. Wonderful lakes...enough time for fitis and various walks. Beautiful Covadonga Sanctuary ... you can not do without your visit. Cangas De Onis very pretty... Be careful where you eat not everything goes

As always, Get tour guide has not let us down. We have spent a great day, discovering new corners, new landscapes, learning a lot from everything the guide has told us. To repeat!!!

Our tour guide, Miguel, was extremely knowledgeable, charismatic and kind throughout our experience! I would 100% recommend this experience with him.
