Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
Lush green valleys painted with wild flowers and pointed, jagged, rounded, rolling, in fact every type of mountain you can imagine!
Lush green valleys sprinkled with wild flowers and every type of mountain you can imagine! The faint sound of cow bells ringing in the distance and cosy wooden chalets dotted on the mountainside. Walkers with smiles on their faces can only mean one thing; you have arrived in Andorra.
With our one or two week holiday durations to choose from there is so much to see on the trails Andorra has to offer! Our two differing itineraries simply ensure that should you come for two weeks you will not walk the same path twice.
These magnificent peaks reach 3000m into the sky all along the French/Spanish border providing a photogenic backdrop as we explore the remote quiet valleys and the secluded mountain lakes that make up the modestly small section that is Andorra.
The gentle Val de Incles offers a range of quiet rambles in alpine scenery, where we can trek up rough paths to admire the many stunningly situated mountain lakes. Reaching the grand, unspoilt Val Madriu, a World Heritage Site, will require more, well rewarded, effort!
The gondola lift from Encamp and high mountain roads allow easy access to high terrain at over 2000m with moderate effort giving us more time to bask in the wide mountain views we have come all this way to gaze upon. A number of historic Romanesque churches with unique frescos can also be visited.
On rest days it is possible to visit the Spanish town of La Seu d'Urgell however there is much more to be discovered in the ‘Country of the Pyrenees’ than the shoppers or skiers ever imagined and it's best done on foot! In the summer, when the skiers have gone home, Andorra offers fantastic walking; from high mountain lakes and through dramatic valleys which are often undersold, unknown and overlooked by the walking masses. Walking that is wonderfully varied and most importantly memorable!
The week of 30 May will be at a more leisurely pace to allow time to appreciate the flowers and plants. From 6 June onwards, you can enjoy our two walks, two leaders, two grades option where you can choose to walk at either grade 6 or 8 each day.
