Nestled on the border between France and Spain and tucked away deep in the Pyrenees, Andorra offers superb walking during the summer months. Walk the high mountain slopes to admire the ever-changing scenery, and descend to the lower wooded inclines and a landscape of sunny mountain plateaus, rich with flora and fauna and full of vibrant colours. See the many glistening lakes that jewel the land.
Quintessential villages contrast with the many preserved Roman buildings finished with local technique. Andorra is rich with history, making it ideal for culture vultures and the budding historians amongst us. Its roots lie in Ancient Greece where the oldest derivation of the word ‘Andorra’ can be found, ‘Andosins’. Its consistent strength and independence has meant that over the centuries, despite successive wars and threats the countries architecture has remained in tact.
Why Book a Walking Holiday to Andorra?
We can’t think of a better way to explore this charming country, than on foot through its sweeping vales, challenging ascents and incredible panoramic views. Escape from the rugged peaks, soaring above 9,000 ft along the French/Spanish border, in our base in Encamp which is an intriguing area and well established for walkers.
The gondola lift from Encamp and high mountain roads, allows easy access to high terrain giving you a more relaxed opportunity to observe the silhouette of the peaks. Visiting the Spanish town of La Seu de Urgell allows time for a peaceful walk within quiet valleys to the remote mountain lakes of the Pyrenees.
When you have walked to your heart's content and wish to purchase something to remember your experience by, why not indulge in some duty free retail therapy in Les Escalades, described as Europe's version of 'Hong Kong'?
