Ibón de Urdiceto

Ibón de Urdiceto

Ibón de Urdiceto is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 2.380m (7,808ft) above the sea level, located in the comarca of Ribagorza, province of Huesca, in northern Spain. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit is gravel. 4x4 vehicle recommended. It’s steep and narrow, impassable for 2 cars at the same time. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Near the lake there are 2 mountain refuges, known as Refugio Urdiceto and Refugio del Paso de los Caballos.
