Walk across Andorra

  • Witness spectacular views and ever-changing scenery and an exceptional variety and quality of walking paths
  • Medieval villages, isolated refuges and soaring mountain passes

Andorra is well known for its unique mountain walking, offering unforgettable views over vast lakes and lush countryside with its highest mountain Coma Pedrosa, standing at a sizeable 2943 metres! This intriguing landlocked principality situated high in the Pyrenees offers all the spectacular views of ever-changing scenery a walker could wish for, some of the most dramatic in all of the Pyrenees. Boasting isolated refuges, medieval villages, soaring mountain passes and the beautiful tranquillity of a thousand lakes.

This 7-night linear route has been selected to get the very best of the stunning Andorran Pyrenees. Taking you across Andorra, on old smugglers roads, sometimes touching France and occasionally coinciding with the long distance GR7 route which traverses across Spain, France and of course Andorra, with the best section of the Pyrenees reputed to be in Andorra. Most of the small towns and villages in Andorra are characterised by their medieval charm and intrigue, leaving much to explore. The Andorran cuisine also takes on many influences from its neighbouring countries serving delicious dishes of cured meats, fresh fish and hearty mountain stews.

Day 1: Arrive in Grau Roig

Arrive in Grau Roig and prepare to begin your Andorran walking adventure.
Overnight Hotel Grau Roig, Grau Roig (breakfast and dinner included).

Day 2: Pas de la Casa to Grau Roig 11KM/ 7MI / 6HRS

You will be transferred from Hotel Grau Roig to the start of your walk in Pas de la Casa. This is a relatively demanding day but within steps you will be immersed in the sheer majesty of the high Pyrenees and quite likely, you will have it all to yourself. Starting from your hotel in Pas de la Casa you will pass shimmering lakes, soft meadows and rocky ridges. Your route will take you onto the GR7 long distance path offering fine views of the valleys beneath crossing in and out of France, and if you're lucky enough, see a group of the local Pyrenean Chamois, Isards. Your final descent will bring you to a delightful area full of streams and pools where frogs hop from rock to rock and marmots call in the distance. Leaving the GR7 path a gentle descent brings you to your hotel. (+850m/ -830m)
Overnight Hotel Grau Roig, Grau Roig (breakfast and dinner included).

Day 3: Grau Roig to Encamp 13.5KM/ 8MI / 6 HRS

This is a challenging high-level walk crossing via Pic de Pessons. If weather is fine, this is an incredible walk over high rugged mountains, strings of lakes, tumbling waterfalls and stunning views of peaks in Spain, France and of course Andorra. As the climb becomes more challenging, you may be able to spot vultures and often a golden eagle. Below Pic de Pessons, the landscape is soft with huge boulders of granite and alpine flowers. The latter part of the descent presents a narrow ambling path leading through cooling forest with streams and flowers like nature's own rock garden. (+710m / -905m)
Overnight Hotel Guillem, Encamp (breakfast included).

Day 4: Encamp to Ordino 8KM/ 5MI / 3.5 HRS

An easier and contrasting day to the previous two, leaving the option of a later start or a free afternoon in lovely Ordino. At the start of the walk is a Moorish tower and a beautiful 12th century church (highly recommend a visit inside). Following an ancient mountain trail, the walk rises steeply up to Coll d'Ordino. From here you can see Andorra's highest peaks and pass by the country's centre. From the Coll, an enjoyable descent leads straight into the beautiful medieval town of Ordino. (+710m / -695m)
Overnight Hotel Coma, Ordino (breakfast and dinner included)

Day 5: Ordino to El Serrat 12KM/ 7.5MI / 5.5 HRS

Today you will follow the valley up to El Serrat. From here the already pleasing riverside trail is made more so by the interest of it being the Ruta de Fero that has sculptures and relics depicting the history of the iron mining era in Andorra. You also pass some very pretty houses on the riverside where you will see an old sawmill. Towards the end of the day, you will pass a beautiful Romanesque bridge and cross a small meadow until you come to the river again and finally ascend past the church into El Serrat. (+835m/ -590m)
Overnight Hotel El Pradet or Hotel Bringue, El Serrat (breakfast and dinner included).

Day 6: El Serrat Circular 13KM/ 8MI / 5 HRS

Today you have an out and back walk to the stunning blue lake Estany Blau located in France, you have the option to walk as far as you wish today. Following the beautiful Rialb valley with its rushing mountain waters, wildflowers and ancient shepherds huts, the initial ascent is easy and relaxed. At the valleys head, a steep climb leads over Port de Siguer with incredible views into France and the shimmering Estany Blau below beckoning for a picnic and a swim. Return by the same route back to El Serrat. (+900m/-900m)
Overnight Hotel El Pradet or Hotel Bringue, El Serrat (breakfast and dinner included).

Day 7: El Serrat to Arinsal 10KM/ 6.5MI / 7 HRS

The Grand Finale of your Andorran walking holiday and what an ending! This is a long, demanding day taking you over the high mountain crossing of L'Angonella to the deep valley setting of Arinsal. You begin in Llorts following the river through a wooded area until you reach a point where the landscape opens up and the stunning valley head draws ever closer. It then descends down a wide grassy ridge and is quite sensational. Towards the end you will begin the descent into the valley below passing ponds and renovated shepherds houses. Finally, through sparse forest you reach the lovely village of Arinsal. (+1165m / -1115m)
Overnight Hotel Montané, Arinsal (breakfast and dinner included).

Day 8: Departure from Arinsal

Transfer to the airport for your return journey home.
