This intriguing landlocked principality, situated high in the Pyrenees boasts isolated refuges, medieval villages, soaring mountain passes and the beautiful tranquillity of a thousand lakes. Andorra offers all the spectacular views of ever-changing scenery a walker could wish for, some of the most dramatic in all of the Pyrenees.
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! Most of the small towns and villages in Andorra are characterised by their medieval charm and intrigue, leaving much to explore. We selected these two centres as they are good bases to get the very best out of the stunning Andorran Pyrenees. The Andorran cuisine also takes on many influences from its neighbouring countries serving delicious dishes of cured meats, fresh fish and hearty mountain stews. 

Our two centres have been chosen for their accessible locations, high standard of hotels and of course the quality of the surrounding walks. You will first be based in Encamp, a lovely parish located on the stunning Valira d’Orient River with good bus links. You can then opt to either walk or be transferred to your second centre in El Serrat. The walking is more mountainous in this village and has a surplus of beautiful wild flowers framing deep lakes.

The Walking
We have carefully selected our routes to ensure the walker truly experiences the best the Andorran Pyrenees has to offer. With its independent character, wildflower meadows and towering peaks, Andorra offers some of the finest paths in the Pyrenees making it a walker’s paradise. The variety and quality of paths is quite exceptional. Many are well way-marked and clearly signposted, elsewhere your maps and our notes will provide you with all the information you will need to find your way and make the most of this vibrant land.

Self-Guided Walking

We provide you with our self-guided walk booklet with walks catering for all abilities. We also provide a local walking map. Our recommended walks include some circular routes, whilst others are more suitable as a linear walk. Public transport is available but the timings are not always walker friendly, particularly in the quiet season. Transfers can be arranged locally with our local partners.
