Wander routes may be better displayed on maps. I was there in June but did not bring poles and was not prepared to walk the routes through the snow. Great terrace/view.

This cable car ride is not cheap but it is spectacular and is a way of allowing access to people not physically capable of walking into the really high mountains. It is possilble to take a one way ride if you are going deep into the high mountains of the Pico's de Europa but most people will be just happy to have been whisked up to 1800 metres above sea level in a 5 minute ride. The views are amazing and you can walk back down to Espinama on a land rover track. Its even posible to walk on another land rover track up to the Refugi at Aliva for lunch in the high season. If you take either of these walking options go properly equipped for the mountains and make sure you tell some-one where you are going.

It's a good system, but it's necessarily slow. Be patient. The one very annoying aspect is some people's habit of pushing in. The really annoys a Brit. Once you have you number in the queue (only called in Spanish in batches of 40, so pay attention!) there's a bar and cafe to relax around as well as grassy areas for the little darlings to run about on.

16euros per adult for the 4 minute cable car ride to the top. If you like views, this is something you must do. I'm afraid of heights but I could suck it up for the short trip and the rewarding views. Once up top you can hike, wander, as much as you want. It was beautiful to see the mountains with snow and the green valleys below. Definitely a highlight.

It is a very good ride up and an excellent view up there. But remember a couple of things. Reach early as lines tend to be long. In case you have a long time, you can always go had a meal either in the cafeteria there on in the town of Espinama and come back or do a picnic in one the benches there.

Most importantly, the moment you reach there take a number for returning back. The number for the returning ride is not the same as the ride up. Do this, else you will have to wait up to an hour after seeing the view.
