The Pyrenean lakes and valleys of Andorra
Guided Walking Holidays - Hiking in Andorra
Lush green valleys sprinkled 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.
These magnificent peaks reach 3000m into the sky all along the French/Spanish border providing a photogenic backdrop as we explore remote quiet valleys and secluded 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. 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!
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 to explore them. On rest days it is possible to visit the Spanish town of Seu de Urgell.
The week of 02 June will be at a more leisurely pace to allow time to appreciate the flowers and plants. From 09 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.
