The Pyrenean lakes and valleys of Andorra
Lush green valleys painted with wild flowers and
pointed, jagged, rounded, rolling, in fact 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 you have
arrived in Andorra.
The 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 lonely mountain lakes.
The gentle Val de Incles offers a range of quiet
rambles in Alpine scenery, where we can trek up
rough paths from the head of lovely flower strewn
Val Incles to admire the many stunningly situated
mountain lakes. Reaching the grand, unspoiled 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 which
allows time to bask in the wide mountain views. 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 Seu de Urgell.
We walk within quiet valleys to the loveliest and
loneliest mountain lakes of the Pyrenees. There is
much more to be discovered in the 'Country of the
Pyrenees' than the shoppers or skiers ever
Our hotel features views from its veranda and
restaurant that entice your eyes down through the
valley below and over the town, with mountains
framing your view, gently calling to you for
The week of 3 June will be at a more leisurely pace
to allow time to appreciate the flowers and plants.
From 10 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.
