Picos de Urbión

Picos de Urbión

The Picos de Urbión are a mountain range on the border between the provinces of Burgos, Soria and La Rioja, between the Ebro and Eouro basins. It is one of the highest mountains of the Iberian System, with the highest point being the Pico de Urbión, at 2,228 meters.

In this mountain range we find as a remnant from the ice age several glacial lakes, such as the Laguna Negra, Laguna Helada and Laguna Larga.

Apart from the glacial lakes, the landscape is characterized by a rugged terrain and eroded high peaks with wide views over the green pine forests at lower altitudes.

In the immediate proximity of this mountain range, we find the Sierra de Neila and in the east the Sierra de Cebollera.
